The Prince hosted Mr Obama at the Palace on Saturday, where they also discussed mental health, a cause dear to Harry, who has recently spoken out about the impact of the death of his mother, Diana, Princess of Wales, in a auto crash in Paris 20 years ago.

Former US president Barack Obama offered his condolences to the victims of the Manchester suicide bombing on Saturday when he met Britain's Prince Harry.

Following their meeting, Kensington Palace's Twitter feed issued a post about the meeting, featuring Harry posing next to a beaming Obama.

If you squint at the photo of Barack Obama and Prince Harry together for long enough, you can nearly convince yourself that our country is still represented by a savvy diplomat and not a blundering buffoon.

CNN reports that Obama offered his condolences to the victims of the Manchester attacks and that Obama and Harry took the time to catch up on a range of topics. Obama made this special trip to England in the wake of the devastating events of May 22, when a terrorist attack at an arena in Manchester where Ariana Grande was performing left 22 dead and 64 injured.
