It would seem Prince Harry is pulling out all the stops for the 2017 Invictus Games taking place in Toronto; the latest being a surprise visit from Former US President Obama, Vice President Biden and Dr Biden.
The three joined Prince Harry courtside yesterday as they watched wheelchair basketball, one of the most popular sports of the Invictus Games.
Before the match started, Prince Harry, Obama and the Bidens met both Team USA and Team France for some group pictures. Team USA came out with the win and they four left the building just after the victory.
Former First Lady Michelle Obama helped out when the Invictus Games were held in Orlando, Florida last year, where the Bidens were also in attendance.

Before the Orlando Games, Michelle Obama challenged Prince Harry and Team UK with a viral video which, in return, resulted in a response from Her Majesty The Queen and Prince Harry.
This year’s Team USA delegation was led by First Lady Melania Trump, who met Prince Harry last Saturday for bilateral talks.
Unlike yesterday’s encounter with President Obama, where Prince Harry and he spent most of the time laughing, sharing jokes and enjoying the game, his meeting with Melania was awkward and looked forced.
Those inside the room during the closed session with FLOTUS said that the prince looked uneasy as he made small talk with the First Lady. No real hard issues were discussed.
Upon greeting Prince Harry, Melania said: “Thank you. Thank you so much for coming.”
Even Prince Harry’s bilateral meetings with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau later the same day were more relaxed.
This was the first solo trip outside the country for Melania since her husband, Donald Trump was elected President of the United States.
The Invictus Games, which has seen around 550competitorss compete in 12 adaptive sports will end tonight with the closing ceremony. Invictus 2018 will be held in Sydney, Australia.
