Great Britain's Prince Harry was a surprise guest at the Mother's Day Tea the the White House yesterday. First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden hosted the event for military moms and their kids. In this video Michelle and Jill honor the service of military moms, then take the kids into the State Dining Room to make Mother's Day cards and crafts for their moms. Prince Harry joined them and seemed at ease helping the kids create cards (this part starts at the 12:20 mark of the video). Then Harry joined everyone back at the tea (at about the 21:17 mark). When he walked into the room there are audible gasps and squeals, which is pretty funny. Michelle Obama announced him to the room by saying "Surprise!" She talked about the fact that Harry just finished serving two tours in Afghanistan and how he works with wounded warriors and veterans' families. Take a look:
