Obamas engage in sports trash talk with royal family

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obamas and the royal family are engaging in trash talk with Britain's royals before next week's athletic competition for wounded military personnel and veterans.

In a video promoting the Invictus Games, Prince Harry and Queen Elizabeth II look over a program of participating athletes when the prince gets a message from Michelle Obama.

"Hey, Prince Harry — remember when you told us to bring it at the Invictus Games?" the first lady asks in a video. "Careful what you wish for," President Barack Obama adds with arms crossed and a group of veterans standing behind him. One mimes a mic drop, saying, 'Boom!"

The queen scoffs at their bluster. "Oh, really. Please." Prince Harry smiles, miming his own mic drop: "Boom!"

The competitions will be held in Orlando, Florida.
