Prince Harry and Jill Biden’s surprising friendship revealed – as Joe joked ‘they spend so much time together’


PRINCE Harry has a host of famous pals, and is said to be close to the newly-elected US President Joe Biden’s wife.  

Dr Jill Biden, 69, struck up a friendship with the Duke of Sussex, 36, during his tour of the US in 2013.

During the trip Harry attended a reception for British and US wounded warriors in Washington, when Joe Biden was serving as Barack Obama’s Vice President. 

Harry also attended the Warrior Games in Colorado during the 2013 visit, which became his inspiration for the Invictus Games, his sporting event for wounded veterans. 

Dr Jill Biden came to London to support the US team at the first Invictus Games in 2014, and the Bidens and Obamas continued supporting the event. 

Harry sat next to the Bidens as they watched the wheelchair basketball event at the 2016 games in Orlando, with Biden joking at the time: “Jill went to London for the last Games.

The Bidens also attended the 2017 Canadian games, where Harry famously stepped out with girlfriend Meghan Markle for the first time. 

Harry sat with Joe and Dr Jill for numerous events at the games. 

Although the Duke of Sussex wasn’t allowed to vote in the recent US elections, he did break royal protocol for the first time in openly talking about politics alongside Meghan, who did cast a vote.

The royal couple urged people to go out and vote, with Harry saying it is time to “reject hate speech, misinformation and online negativity”. 

Meghan called the 2020 White House race as the “most important of our lifetime”.

As part of Time100 magazine’s annual list of the top 100 influential people, Harry spoke about how he had never voted in the UK.

He said: “As we approach this November, it’s vital that we reject hate speech, misinformation and online negativity.

“When the bad outweighs the good, for many, whether we realise it or not, it erodes our ability to have compassion and our ability to put ourselves in someone else’s shoes.

“Because when one person buys into negativity online the effects are felt exponentially. It’s time to not only, but to act.”

Meghan added: “Every four years we are told the same thing, that this is the most important election of our lifetime. But this one is.

“When we vote, our values are put into action and our voices are heard. Your voice is a reminder that you matter, because you do and you deserve to be heard.”

Biden is expected to be sworn in as the 46th president of the United States in January at an outdoor inauguration ceremony.
