They are quite the power pair. Michelle Obama — wearing Jimmy Choo — and Prince Harry joined forces for the opening ceremony of the much-anticipated Invictus Games in Orlando on Sunday night.

The first lady arrived in Jimmy Choo “Attila” flats and posed for photos with military servicemen. She then took the stage in a pair of black pointy-toe heels from the brand. The event, an international sporting event for wounded, injured and sick military personnel, is a cause that the Prince off Wales and first lady are both fiercely passionate about.

“I cannot tell you how proud and excited I am to open Invictus here in America,” Prince Harry told the crowd.

“It is truly an honor to be here tonight to help kick off this year’s Invictus Games,” said Obama, who was wearing a BCBG Max Azria top. “I want to start by thanking Prince Harry for his outstanding leadership and for bringing the Invictus Games here to Orlando. He is truly our Prince Charming.”

The duo — who recently had dinner with Kate Middleton, Prince William and President Obama at Kensington Palace in London — continued promoting the event on Monday during an interview with Good Morning America’s Robin Roberts.

The first lady and Prince Harry have certainly had a bit of fun promoting the game in recent weeks, trading jabs on Instagram.

Hey, @KensingtonRoyal. Are you ready for @InvictusOrlando? Game on.
