Prince Harry, his brother Prince William, and William's wife Kate Middleton hosted the former American president and his wife, Michelle Obama, for dinner at Kensington Palace on April 22, 2016.

The newly engaged couple revealed in a BBC interview that they were introduced by a mutual friend, but declined to reveal who the friend was. Backgrid.com revealed Meghan's best friend Markus Anderson as the mystery cupid who introduced Meghan to Prince Harry.

    My president ????

    The Obama's: The picture of class and grace.

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    Love it love it love it. I hope all the haters are enjoying the taste of this couple not thinking about them. Woot!

  • Evillene

    PH was just in Chicago with the Obamas a few weeks ago. It seems they actually have a bond. He must be a decent guy if Barry and Michelle like him.

  • shun king

    its wouldn't mean he is decent remember Obama killed up thousands of kids with his drone bombs

  • Bam Bam Li

    As much as I'm happy for them, I'm already over this lol. The media are going to squeeze this for all its worth

  • dontgetblocked

    Just like they liked Henry Weinstein. LOL.

  • dontgetblocked

    I live in America. I'm more concerned about out issues here than a rich couple getting engaged. Furthermore, BO needs to be more concerned about his daughter out here laying up under that white boy and smoking dope.

  • dontgetblocked

    He is a FORMER President. Your President is Donald Trump!

  • Seek Truth Speak Truth

    Why is Obama still getting press like he is still president?

    His time is over- and he has nothing to show for it but a rainbow White House and a high insurance bill.

    Not saying Dump is any better but BO needs to step back and focus on his memoir.

  • Summer

    “She won’t be allowed to be a black princess. The only way she can be accepted is to pass for white,” Kehinde Andrews, an associate professor of sociology at Birmingham City University who launched the first black studies degree in Europe, told Newsweek. “If there are people who are celebrating, it’s a bit naive, and they’ll be very disappointed.”

    Bet there won't be one black face in that wedding party.

  • Li

    Harry was just in Chicago at Obama's symposium. He was a HIT.

  • Li

    His daughter's business is none of our business. She's going to an IVY league college and will more than likely meet more WHITE & Asian boys than Black boys. The black boys will probably be ballers on scholarships.
    His daughter is a swan at this point in her life let her fly.

  • dontgetblocked

    LOL!

  • dontgetblocked

    WTH!! Was her biracial father a baller? How about her African grandfather? Was her mother a baller? You're ignorant. Not all black people who attend Ivy league school's play sports. As long as her picture is plastered all over the tabloids, it's our business. If she doesn't want her business out there...do her sheenanigans behind closed doors. She's a dopehead...just like her father. And any teenager who smokes is an IDIOT!

  • Summer

    I hope Obama is invited to the wedding and DUMP is left out.

  • You Could Never

    Obama has already written a memoir. In 1995.

  • Jygalo

    So he can’t extend congrats to a friend because of his child?

    You’re stupid

  • Junkanoo

    boring bland bollocks enough of this crap

  • dontgetblocked

    A friend? He's just looking for attention.

  • hottlanta

    At least she is grown unlike Sarah Palin daughter who didn't finish high school and was paraded around the stage like a prize cow at the fair. Got 3 kids with 2 different baby daddies. I guess Dump needs to hold Dump Jr. hand to keep him away from the Russians. Oops he wrote him a note to excuse him because it was just a misunderstanding and not a crime.

  • Coy little wink

    puff some la and chill out please ...time's a wastin gal

  • Kimberly King

    Outside of her mother? Then yes you're probably correct. I'm sure why black women are geeked about a half breed marrying a prince. I do think they look lovely together though. But facts are facts.

  • Kimberly King

    You just answered your own question. lol I think most US Citizens and the media miss him. I wasn't a fan of many of the things he did, but compared to what we have now, I'm sure the majority of humans in the US would kill to have him back.

  • KcoolMuziq

    Prince Harry has received the honorary black card now.

  • Kimberly King

    For marrying a half breed? No he hasn't. And technically I wouldn't even call her a half breed. They say you are what your father is, and she has a white father. Anyway, I wish ya'll would stop inviting everybody to the cookout.

  • Readytochokemothernatureout

    Thats my POTUS ?,congrats to them Diana would be proud of her babies.

  • KcoolMuziq

    Tell Michelle Obama that.

  • Tammie Reed

    I just LOVE all the goodness in this pic! On another note, Prince Harry's suit is tailored to a t! He is clean, do you hear me!!!!!

  • TooMunch

    As a Black Person myself, I will be revoking that card issued. Thank you very much. *walks out with card in hand*

  • Kimberly King

    Michelle wasn’t hoopin and hollering about inviting so and so to a cookout. Plus Michelle is black. Apples and oranges babe. Try again.

  • Arrissasso

    From the profile Meghan eerily resembles the former POTUS. I have never seen President Obama cheese so hard..

  • RICHIE_RICH

    Nope , I said what I said. He still my President?????

  • RICHIE_RICH

    You way of thinking seems very complex!!!

  • FIGHT THE POWER

    yeah, who cares about this cac and sellout out obama>,, what he saying about our brothers in Libya being sold as slaves.... probably nothing since he gave the green light.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    The royals love the Obama's ... The Queen and all.... They can't stomach Trump ...??? they consider him a peasant ..???

  • eldwdubu

    Compared to that idiot in the White House Obama getting press is a big plus.

  • A D N

    Aww...how presidential of Barack Obama.

  • MsPam

    Why would they invite Trump?! Stop bringing up him up in every conversation. Damn the obsession!

  • R in NYC

    Some of these comments are ignorant af. I find it hilarious when a bitter person thinks they can speak for us all.
    Carry on.

  • bhavana

    Half breed??

  • Ro

    Thats Beautiful!

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Yeah they postponed his visit until next year and the Queen cancelled Trump's visit with her.

    Ha,ha,ha!!

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Yes blame Obama even though Trump's been president for the past ten months.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Well a lot of his enemies are blaming Obama for the sun rising so...

  • Ro

    Very well said!

  • Ro

    yes let her live her life!

  • free

    i think he would have gone full black if he had met and was in love with her. it just happened to be this chick. and why are folks tripping on harry when we got tons of full black men who are going "exotic"?

  • free

    and let us not delve to deeply into the bush twins.

  • Kim’s Original Face

    Did the current commander say anything about what is going on over there?

  • Seek Truth Speak Truth

    Black folks need to move on. He is no longer president. Reminiscing doesn’t change anything... let’s work to get the current Ahole out of office.

    That’s all I’m saying.

  • You Could Never

    It's customary to invite world diplomats/dignitaries to royal events. Last time I checked the US President and FLOTUS are considered a diplomatic role. Its been speculated since yesterday if Trump was getting an invite. So this is not far fetched at all.

    http://www.newsweek.com/obama-not-trump-may-be-invited-royal-wedding-prince-harry-and-meghan-markle-722899

    Instead of going left and telling folks off learn how stuff works. Yall do it here ALL the time. Be loud and wrong af.

  • You Could Never

    Sandra. Some of your readership got just less intelligent and ignorant af over time. Still some intelligents present. But a whole lot of slow ones in the gallery now. I come from the mindset if you don't know politics or any given subject matter really, then to hush on it?

    Have a good day. Smh.

  • Keepin’IT100

    He’s a complete ass!!

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    I was thinking more simple-minded.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Oh no someone is talking sideways about your boo again.
    For shame.
    Ha,ha,ha!!1

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    I think most people can multitask.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    So you think that America is an island unto itself?

    It's weird that you're commenting on a platform which is the result of the internet which connects the world and you're complaining about reading about someone who lives outside the physical borders of the United States.

    Ha,ha,ha!!

  • fRAktal Reality

    The visual of this in my head made me laugh out loud. :-)

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    I saw a clip of an interview with them & she she looking so LOVINGLY at him.
    SHE.IS.SPRUNG.
    GOD BLESS THE BEAUTIFUL COUPLE.

  • fRAktal Reality

    Henry? I thought it was Harvey.

  • Well$$Well$$?

    Congrats! I always thought Prince Harry was a handsome ginger.

  • Well$$Well$$?

    So he can't wish someone congratulations? Lol.

  • Well$$Well$$?

    ??.

  • http://citygirlzen.blogspot.com/ missarewa

    Congratulations to the lovely couple!

  • http://citygirlzen.blogspot.com/ missarewa

    lol @ gave the green light. in an ideal world, this will be the problem of the Libyan leader. America does not rule the world, they are only made to feel that way because of some incompetent African leaders

  • hottlanta

    Let's not talk about generational wealth Paris Hilton who didn't finish high school, has a GED, did a sex tape and went to prison. I am sick of black folks who expect our daughters to be virgins but give other races daughters the luxury to sleep and smoke around as much as they want to. I am still laughing how Miley cut the fool, blamed in on black rap culture and now she is a musical expert on The Voice when we got other folks who deserve to be in that chair.

  • SunnyDdoneturnedgloomy

    Now before I ask Harpo......who the hell are you?? Did you at some point work for the Obamas and they hurt you?? Whats with all the hate???

  • hottlanta

    Can Dump READ his memoirs. I never heard him say go to a certain chapter in his book for clarification.

  • Sorry_Not_Sorry

    They did the same thing to Kate when they first got married it’s just her coverage was mainly white outlets. Since Meghan is half black we’re being bombarded with her family history and everything about her

  • Seek Truth Speak Truth

    I don’t necessarily agree but that’s okay.

  • Seek Truth Speak Truth

    Um, that was prior to his presidency ? ?

  • MsPam

    Please stop! Did the Obamas go to William and Kate’s wedding?! Nope! Trump said something negative about Princesses Diana do you think he will get a invite?!

  • You Could Never

    They didnt go bc they didnt want to pay for the extra security. No. Trump wont be invited. But you said stop bringing him up in every convo when in re to wedding invite? its already widely speculated on. Its not like that person brung him up and it was never discussed in the media yesterday. Throughly.

  • Summer

    Because Trump is the leader of the free world and the POTUS is ususally INVITED!!!!
    BTW, I can bring up what I want to and WILL. If you do not like something I've posted, BYPASS & BLOCK. I bypass your comments all the time.

  • MsPam

    LOL Lollipop

  • MsPam

    I didn’t vote him or any of previous presidents!

  • Karen Brady

    That's why I never ever comment on politics here. I read the arguments and I learn from time to time but I don't know enough to be chiming in. At all.

  • Karen Brady

    LOL

  • Karen Brady

    too funny

  • Karen Brady

    And empty-handed at that.

  • Karen Brady

    MILEY!!! THIS!!!!! YES!!!! My sis and I talked briefly about this when the AMA's were on.

  • Karen Brady

    WELP. Ballers on scholarships.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    At least Harry won't be the third wheel with Will and Kate any more.

  • Kimberly King

    Yep. Half breed. Glad you can read! Next week, I'll work with you on how to identify the different parts of speech! Baby steps!

  • Elevated Soul

    LMAO @ you dumb Black Obamabots...Dude and his wife are DESPERATE for any attention,they can get because Fake News is stuck on President Trump.I see broke mofos on here saying the Queen and them see "President Trump" as a peasant,so WTF do you think they see you as?---->LMAO

    Only a dumb people would still cape for a dude who used Blacks like you were on his stroll. You accepted the inattention he gave Blacks. Souljahs like me gives less than a d@mn about that bish.....

  • what?why

    Obama should be home parenting his high school daughter , not traveling the world and trying to be cool.

  • FIGHT THE POWER

    what this sellout saying about LIbya, that him and that evil kunt hillary are responsible for...

  • FIGHT THE POWER

  • FIGHT THE POWER

  • FIGHT THE POWER

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Obama isn't president, but Trump is.

    Since the only thing that Trump has done since he was in office is issue executive orders to undo whatever President Obama did maybe he can tackle this problem too.
