Biden name drops Prince Harry and his role in the Invictus Games as the Royal ... trends now

President Joe Biden name dropped Prince Harry and his work with the Invictus Games at Thursday night's National Christmas Tree Lighting on the Ellipse. 

The acknowledgment comes as the British Royal Family is embroiled in the latest chapter of the 'royal racist' row, which started when Prince Harry and Meghan Markle told Oprah Winfrey that a family member had 'concerns' about the color of Prince Archie's skin. 

The latest turn came after the Dutch publication of author Omid Scobie's book Endgame, in which two senior royals were inadvertently named

During brief remarks at the National Tree Lighting ceremony, Biden called attention to 43 members of Team USA who were in the audience and who had traveled to Düsseldorf, Germany in September for the Invictus Games - an event first lady Jill Biden had skipped. 

'Give them a hand,' Biden told the crowd. 'Jill and Prince Harry went to the first Invictus Games in '14 and the Invictus Games in Ontario, I was there, in '16 in Toronto. Anyway, there's been great, great, great effort that we've seen.'
