LMAO That's so much fun. Lovely sense of fun by all. Great fun to see.

I'm so proud of how Harry has conducted himself. His informal yet determined work
for veterans is admirable.

Now that video is absolutely priceless!! There's a whole lot of cooperation goin' on (and some healthy competition too) with these Invictus Games. Its a win/win event.

Video:
Prince Harry joined the Sky Sports Game Changers show on Tuesday 19 April, filming a special episode dedicated to the Invictus Games. Game Changers is a fun weekly children's sports show on Sky, which encourages children to get active.

I didn't noticed the article, but I love the video.

From Kensington Palace twitter account:

Unfortunately for you @FLOTUS and @POTUS I wasn't alone when you sent me that video �� - H.

The Queen isn't just the best, most beloved, most iconic head of state. She's by far the most funniest too.

I agree. I loved HM's reaction here. It's as though she's saying, "Who do they think they are?!"

The Queen is pretty cool for giving this a go

I'm certainly a fan of the royals using social media and I think it's great they release a video like this but the usual suspects (reporters) are on twitter (ironic) discussing the royals bypassing traditional press and putting out this video via social media for their PR purposes.

Richard Palmer predicts at this rate, Harry's engagement will be announced via Twitter

These reporters are (as I've said before) starting to make me angry. And do they really mean that Harry should have invited the BBC, ITV and the papers etc to Windsor to record this video.

My take on it is that by releasing this video via social media, it seems a bit more personal, a bantering exchange between friends rather than a formal, stiff announcement at a press conference. This way, it also took the focus off of the VIPs as heads of state and representatives but rather bantering Americans razzing the Brits and the Brits razzing back. All in good fun and if the reporters are the only ones that seem to have sour grapes about this rather than praise it for the gem it truly is, its their loss.

Social media is here to stay and can reach far more people faster than reporters writing a column or "scooping" a story.

I also have to agree with Scarebaby. I've watched this several times and love it! I'd love to see this play as a commercial here in the States on TV to plug the Invictus Games. Harry really had a grand idea and worked so hard to make it what it is today.

The more I think about it, the more I'm starting to think this was all hatched over dinner at KP when the Obamas were there. It does lay to rest for me any doubt in my mind that the three of them, W&K&H, with the Obamas enjoy each other's company and they got Granny in on the act too. Perfectly planned and brilliantly executed!

The date on Harry's phone is April 27, so he recorded his bit two days ago. Difficult to say when the Obamas did theirs. It's only a few seconds so it may have been today

Great that the Queen agreed to publicise the Invictus Games like this on behalf of her grandson Harry. He gets on well with Michelle too so it was terrific that the Obamas were happy to get in on the joke!

Prince Harry and The Invictus Games: 2014 and 2016

I think this was a great video and it had a warm feel IMO, I loved HM's reaction at the end, haha.

I think it's a good thing that royals are using social media, because they can communicate with a wider audience and can also follow accounts of charities and organisations that they are working with, which could also help them to become more involved in the charity/organisation. I think social media is a "prominent" part of modern life as most people use some form of it. Although I understand that there are cons (I have experienced them) I think there are a lot of pros of social media.
