Prince Harry hugs Anthony Joshua as pair reunite two years after AJ offered to be best man at royal wedding

PRINCE Harry today hugged Anthony Joshua nearly two years after the cheeky heavyweight offered to be his best man for the royal wedding.

The pair were pictured embracing and cracking up at the launch of Made by Sport – a campaign that aims to help disadvantaged young people through sport.

The Duke of Sussex was keen to chat to Anthony Joshua during the event at the Black Prince Trust in Lambeth.

Joshua himself was all smiles this morning – despite losing his heavyweight title when he was stopped by Andy Ruiz Jr in one of the biggest shocks in boxing history. 

Prince Harry, who welcomed baby Archie into the world last month, headed to the South London event to support the charity that helps to raise awareness around the role sport can play in developing skills for the real world.

Harry and AJ met in December 2017 when the duke interviewed the boxer on Radio 4's Today programme.

It was there that Joshua made his bold wedding proposal.

The prince today made sure to meet young people taking part in boxing training sessions at the sports hub.

The sessions were led by Joshua and by Nicola Adams, a double Olympic gold medallist.

The duke will also hear from grassroots coaches about how they think the campaign will make a difference to young people's lives and give a short speech before leaving.

It comes after new details of Prince Harry's trip to Africa were revealed today, with the prince and wife Meghan Markle to travel to Angola as part of their Autumn tour to carry on Princess Diana's charitable legacy with the HALO Trust.

Joshua was battered by Ruiz – with it likely he will get a chance to reclaim his title with a rematch signed in as part of the fight deal.

The 29-year-old couldn't "remember anything" from his third round knockdown.

The referee eventually stopped the fight in the seventh round after the Olympic 2012 champion took a beating and was floored four times.
