Cape Town – One usually doesn’t stoop to lower oneself to such vulgar displays like the commoners but if one’s grandson is Prince Harry, then one simply must play along. In a hilarious new video for the Invictus Games charity, Britain’s Prince Harry convinced his grandma, Prince Elizabeth II, and the White House’s Obamas to play along.

This year’s Invictus Games that Prince Harry started in 2013 – a sport contest for sick and wounded military officers – will this year take place for four days from 8 May in Orlando, Florida.

To promote the event, a funny new video has quickly gone viral after Prince Harry roped in his 90-year old grandma as well as the American president Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama.

In the video Prince Harry gets a video message from the Obamas while sitting with his grandmother.

"Message? Oh, from Michelle. How very amusing," remarks Queen Elizabeth II, after which Michelle says: "Hey, Prince Harry, remember when you told us to bring it at the Invictus Games?"

"Careful what you wish for," remarks Barack, as the American military members behind him pull faces and the one in the middle does a "mic drop" and says "Boom!".

Queen Elizabeth II, always ever-royal and the epitome of etiquette, then throws loving shade – as one can only do when one is the head of the 53 commonwealth nations.

There’s even a bit of a smile from Her Majesty. "Boom. Really? Please," says Queen Elizabeth II as Prince Harry does his own mic drop and goes "Boom!"

The royal Twitter trash talk has gone viral, with the video from Michelle Obama @FLOTUS retweeted 5 700 times, more than 29 000 times from Prince Harry’s Twitter @KensingtonRoyal, and already having hundreds of thousands of views on YouTube.
