It’s official: Even Michelle Obama thinks Prince Harry is hot. The handsome royal — who is sporting a solid amount of sexy scruff these days — is currently visiting Washington, D.C., and joined the first lady and Dr. Jill Biden for a tour of the USO Warrior and Family Center at the Fort Belvoir military base in Fairfax County, Virginia, on Wednesday, Oct. 28.
Their visit marked the announcement of the 2016 Invictus Games and an opportunity for the royal, 31, to meet wounded servicemen and women at the state-of-the-art rehab facility on the army base.
After Obama’s wife’s speech, the first lady acknowledged Prince William’s single younger brother, telling a roomful of women: “All right, ladies, Prince Harry is here. Don’t act like you don’t notice!”
During his own speech, Prince Harry referred to his personal war experience. “I am in no doubt that my two deployments to Afghanistan changed the direction of my life,” he said. “There is very little that can truly prepare you for the reality of war. The experiences can be stark and long lasting.”
“Returning to the UK after my first deployment, I shared the flight home with three critically injured British soldiers, all in induced comas, and the body of a Danish soldier, killed in action,” Harry continued. “It hit me then that this flight was one of many, carrying home men and women whose lives would be changed forever, and some who had made the ultimate sacrifice. From that moment, I knew I had a responsibility to help all veterans, who had made huge personal sacrifices for their countries, to lead healthy and dignified lives after service.”
The handsome redhead is also set to meet President Barack Obama Wednesday afternoon at the White House before attending a reception at the British Ambassador’s residence for an Invictus Games reception.
The U.S. will host the 2016 Invictus Games at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Fla., in May. The Invictus Games are a sporting event for injured active duty and veteran service members.
