Malia Obama started her education at Harvard this year, and was recently caught engaging in that venerable old tradition of pashing on with her boyfriend at a college football game. There was immediate speculation as to the identity of her mystery man, and he has since been revealed as 19-year-old British student Rory Farquharson.
Farquharson, who is as posh as that incredible name suggests, attended the prestigious Rugby School, where he was head boy, one of those distinguished British terms that sound a lot filthier than they actually are. According to his mates at the $56,000-per-year school, he was “well-respected, popular [and] sporty” as well as “a ladies’ man and a very confident guy all-round.”
He represented the school in golf as well as rugby, and even appeared as an extra in the below video, which played at the opening of the 2015 Rugby World Cup and features old mate Prince Harry in a cameo:
Farquharson, who was in a chemistry club called the Blue Bunsen Society at school, has previously interned at the Centre for Democracy and Peace Building in Northern Ireland, and started his studies at Harvard last year.
The UK’s Sun newspaper even managed to dig up a letter that Farquharson wrote to his 16-year-old self as some sort of school assignment. It read, in part:
“[You’re a lanky, over-confident public school boy, desperately trying to prove to your friends how much of a ‘lad’ you are and you have failed miserably … And for goodness’ sake get a haircut. Despite what you think, your floppy mop isn’t attracting the girls.”
Until recently, he had a Twitter account, on which he was a vocal critic of Donald Trump‘s “populism”, although the account has seemingly disappeared. It has also been reported that he did not follow Barack Obama, which may or may not be awkward at future family get-togethers.
Reportedly, he has been dating Malia Obama for a few months, although she still has a secret service detail from that time her dad was president, so they may not be able to get away with much. Still, we are excited for this cute young pair of future world leaders and wish them all the best with their future public pash sessions.
