Prince Harry and President Barack Obama are our new favorite besties.

The royal stopped by the Oval Office for a number of reasons, but most notably to discuss the Invictus Games—a Paralympic-style sporting event aimed at uniting wounded service members from across the globe—with President Obama. The U.S. will host the 2016 Invictus Games at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Fla., from May 8 to May 12 next year.

"It is a great pleasure to welcome His Royal Highness Prince Harry here to the Oval Office," Obama told reporters. "I've had an opportunity to spend a lot of time with so many of his family members, but this is the first time that we had a chance to talk directly. He has gotten to know Michelle very well," he joked.

As part of his trip to the nation's capitol, Harry (who retired from the British military in June) joined First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden, wife of Vice President Joe Biden, at Fort Belvoir in Virginia to speak with wounded vets.

"Alright, ladies, Prince Harry is here. Don't act like you don't know," the First Lady joked while introducing the handsome prince.

The visit to Fort Belvoir included courtside seats to a lively game of wheelchair basketball, where the redheaded royal was spotted laughing and joking with FLOTUS and SLOTUS. The First Lady even showed off her basketball moves by catching a wayward ball from the stands!
