Dozens of moms, grandmothers and children were attending a White House tea party Thursday when Michelle Obama introduced a special guest.
"Well ... Surprise!" the First Lady told the military families as a blushing Prince Harry joined them in the East Room. The guests, who had been eating cookies, cakes and smoked salmon, broke into applause.
"He's only got a limited amount of time with us but when he heard about the tea party and all of you, he wanted to be part of it to personally thank you for your service," Obama said.

On her show Chef Wanted, Anne Burrell helps test up-and-coming chefs for top spots at premiere restaurants. But this week she's getting a culinary dream job of her own.
On Monday, the Food Network star will be cooking for attendees at the White House's Easter Egg Roll.
"I am so super excited," Burrell tells PEOPLE. "The White House is such a beautiful place, and I can't wait to visit and see the President and the First Lady and, of course, to do something fun for the kids."
On Burrell's menu: orecchiette with broccoli rabe pesto and sausage (which comes from her cookbook Cook Like a Rock Star) because, as she says, "A pasta dish is a great way to get kids to eat veggies."

The Harlem shake is out, mom dancing is in – and First Lady Michelle Obama is ready for her TV close-up.
Joining a drag-donning Jimmy Fallon on his NBC show Late Night Friday, Mrs. Obama, 49, broke it down for "The Evolution of Mom Dancing," promoting the third anniversary of her "Let's Move" anti-obesity campaign.
Although the pair easily got into the groove with such classics as "Go Shopping, Get Groceries," "Raise the Roof" and "Sprinkler," the first lady kicked it up a notch with "Just The Hands Part of Single Ladies," "Oh My God, I Love This Song" and "Driving the Station Wagon."

A standing ovation from her crew greeted Robin Roberts at the door of the ABC Times Square studio of Good Morning America, even before the sun rose Wednesday – exactly five months after the anchor had a bone marrow transplant to treat myelodysplastic syndrome, or MDS, a rare blood disorder.
Outside, in the street, a crowd of fans had already gathered with placards, banners and even an ebullient fellow from Dallas waving what he called the world's largest wristband, hailing his heroine. It read, "Welcome Back Robin."
Once the show hit the air, Roberts, with her colleagues surrounding her, looked into the camera, broke into a great big smile, and announced: "Hi, it's Robin. I've been waiting 174 days to do this: Good Morning America!"
