Prince Harry Cheers With Vice President Joe Biden, Jill Biden at Invictus Games

Prince Harry and the Bidens watched a wheelchair rugby match together.

The vice president was welcomed by thunderous cheers and joked with the audience, "Jill went to London for the last [Invictus] Games and she spent too much damn time with Prince Harry."

A massive crowd filled up the indoor stadium and cheered loudly as the U.K. took on Australia in the bronze medal match and Team USA played Denmark for the gold medal.

Prince Harry participated in the electric atmosphere, taking the salute and playing along when the audience did the Mexican wave.

It was the Bidens' arrival though that really got the crowd going as Joe Biden commended the Invictus Games participants for their sacrifice and bravery.

"We're a military family. Our son, Beau, was a major," the vice president said. "He used to have a saying and he lived it. He'd say, 'Never complain and never explain,' and he lived it."

While Prince Harry has been followed by cameras wherever he goes at the Invictus Games, this night was a bit different. The prince, himself a veteran, appeared visibly moved as the vice president saluted the heroes from 15 nations participating in the games, even pulling out his own camera phone to snap photos with the vice president and his wife.

With Prince Harry and the Bidens cheering them on, the U.S. took the gold in the wheelchair rugby finals, winning 28-19 over Denmark.
