    When Barack Obama reunited with Prince Harry at the Invictus Games on Friday, their bromance-filled pictures were almost too much to handle.

    But it turns out there was even more to love about this interaction than first met the eye: According to one lucky lady who found herself sitting on the other side of Prince Harry, the former U.S. president was grilling the royal about his love life with girlfriend Meghan Markle.

    ‘Obama asked about Meghan and Harry let him know she had been to watch the tennis with him,’ Hayley Stover told the Sunday People. ‘He asked if she was enjoying the games and Harry was really smiling as he said yes. He looked so happy. It was cute.’

    But Obama didn’t stop there: Like a man after our own hearts, he continued to ask the royal about his love life. ‘Obama also asked about her filming the TV series Suits and how it was going. Harry asked Obama about his wife Michelle and how she was doing. Then he said, “Send my love to Michelle.”’

    Now all we need is for Meghan to meet Michelle and our lives will officially be made.

    BRB, canceling all other activities today. This is too much for our hearts to handle.
