Can Prince Harry get any more charming? The charitable royal couldn't hide his excitement as he cheered on winners at the Invictus Games, particularly his good friend—a double amputee—who won the 200-meter run.

As Dave Henson made his way through the race in Orlando, Fla. Tuesday, the 31-year-old Royal and the rest of the crowd reportedly rose to their feet as the runner crossed the finish line with the best time in the world this year—25.04 seconds, according to People. Harry could be seen cheering and pointing at Henson from the stands as he got closer to victory in the Paralympic-style competition.

Once Henson received his gold medal, Harry walked down to the track, smiled widely and gave his pal a big hug. "You were gliding," he reportedly told him. Henson was just one of many winners that Harry congratulated that day. The prince also took time to pose for a photo with the American ex-serviceman silver and bronze medal winners of the race, with the three of them joining Henson as the UK and American flags were draped around them.

Harry also made sure to greet the athletes competing that day, including Team USA athlete Michael Kacer who lost his left arm in a rocket attack while serving in Afghanistan, according to the Daily Mail. The charitable prince founded the Games for wounded and injured veterans in 2014, with the first Invictus Games taking place in London that year.
