Mental health as been a key issue for Prince Harry who has spoken publicly about receiving counselling.

Kensington Palace also said that they discussed the terrorist attack in Manchester. Obama offered his condolences to the victims and support for those recovering from their injuries.

The tragic incident following an Ariana Grande concert left 22 dead and more than 59 injured after a suicide bomber detonated his explosives.

While in Germany Obama delivered a message to Manchester alongside German Chancellor Angela Merkel and the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby.

“As the father of two daughters, I am heartbroken by the extraordinary tragedy that has occurred in Manchester

“To all the families who have been affected, to those who are still recovering, to those who’ve lost loved ones, it’s unimaginable to think about the cruelty and the violence that the city of Manchester has suffered,” he said.
