Michelle And Barack Go Head To Head With The British Royal Family To Support Wounded Veterans


Kensington Palace and The White House traded good-natured barbs on Twitter earlier today for a great cause: the 2016 Invictus Games, which will be held this year in Orlando, Florida. 

The games were started in 2014 by Prince Harry — himself a veteran of the Global War On Terrorism — as a sporting event for veterans injured and wounded in war. 

First Lady Michelle Obama, accompanied by the president, tweeted a video to the United Kingdom's Prince Harry as an apparent reply to an earlier challenge issued by the prince to "bring it."

Here's how it unfolded.

It started with this video tweet by the first lady and the president, surrounded by Air Force personnel.

The tweet seemed to catch Prince Harry off guard...

Until he regrouped with Her Majesty, The Queen for this epic riposte.
