Michelle Obama Praises Prince Harry: ‘He Is Truly Our Prince Charming’
The British Royal and FLOTUS launched the 2016 Invictus Games Sunday night (May 9, 2016) at Disney World’s ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Orlando, Fla. During his speech, the Prince couldn’t help but melt all of our hearts.
“When I traveled back from the battlefield on a plane carrying the body of a Danish soldier and three young Brits fighting for their lives, I began to understand the true cost of war,” he told the audience. “I learned about the importance of teamwork and camaraderie that only military service can teach you. I joined the army because for a long time I just wanted to be one of the guys.”
“I cannot tell you how proud and excited I am to open the second Invictus games here in the America,” he continued. “I’m a long way from London tonight. But when I look out and I see so many familiar faces, servicemen and women, their friends and their families and all the people who have got them here — I feel like I’m at home.”
After his speech Harry handed the mic to Obama, who thanked him for his work.”He is truly our Prince Charming isn’t he? He should be proud of himself for his work,” she said.
