The Queen has starred alongside Prince Harry in a hilarious promotional video for the Invictus Games following a ‘threat’ by the Obamas about the Americans winning.
Michelle and Barack Obama tweeted a short video earlier today where they reminded Prince Harry he had told the American athletes to ‘bring it’ to the competition, which starts on May 8. In the playful clip, they ridicule the young Prince’s confidence and state: ‘Hey Prince Harry. Remember when you told us to bring it at the Invictus Games? Be careful what you wish for.’
Three officials can then be seen making a ‘mic drop’ hand signal in the background – seen as a symbol of confidence. The First Lady also wrote on Twitter: ‘Hey, @KensingtonRoyal! Are you ready for @InvictusOrlando? Game on.’
Prince Harry initially replied from the official Kensington Palace account with a tweet, stating: ‘Wow @FLOTUS and @POTUS, some @weareinvictus fighting talk there! You can dish it out, but can you take it? – H.’ But he then appeared to be concerned about the possible threat of competition from the Americans as he added: ‘@FLOTUS @POTUS How on Earth am I going to top that?’
The Prince, however, had a pre-prepared trick up his sleeve – a video with the Queen.
A short clip uploaded around 4pm – less than an hour after the Obamas’ footage was posted – shows the Prince sitting on a sofa with his grandmother while looking at pictures of last year’s Invictus competitors.
They appear to be concerned about an American man looking ‘incredibly fast’ during the sprinting when the Prince receives a text from Mrs Obama containing the video.
He then turns to the Queen and asks: ‘Do you want to watch this together? Let’s have a look.’
While Prince Harry looks concerned, the Queen does not look fazed by the clip and merely states: ‘Oh really? Please.’
The clip ends with the 31-year-old Prince turning to the camera and making his own ‘mic drop’ hand signal, clearly convinced the Britons will return triumphant.
Prince Harry will travel to the U.S. next week to support the UK team in the Paralympics-style competition, which is for injured, sick or wounded servicemen and women and veterans.
