Prince Harry and Meghan Markle got into the action at the 2023 Invictus Games, passionately waving their hands in the air, joining a Mexican wave, and clapping along with the crowd.
The duo appeared to be in good spirits as they sat side by side in the stands and watched the sportsmen compete.
It comes after Meghan, dressed in a stylish shorts and blazer ensemble, was greeted with an enthusiastic ovation as she stepped into the Merkur Spiel-Arena with Harry yesterday.
Crowds erupted in applause when the duchess arrived for her first day of action, having only arrived in Dusseldorf Tuesday afternoon.
In return, she clapped and waved before meeting fans yelling her name with high-fives and selfies.
As he visited the Games for the fifth day in a row, Harry took a back role as his wife basked in the limelight.
Over 2,000 pupils were invited to attend the day’s events, and many were ecstatic at the prospect of catching sight of the former Suits actress.
The couple put on a happy face as they sat in the stands with Australian fans to watch wheelchair basketball.
Harry and Meghan were surrounded by admirers who wanted to take photographs with them before competing in a children’s relay race around the court as opposite teams.
While Meghan clapped her hands enthusiastically, Harry stood on the sidelines and cheered his team to win the sprint race.
They then awarded awards to all participants while Queen’s ‘We Are the Champions’ played in the arena.
The Sussexes attended a glamorous hotel reception Tuesday night when the Duchess of Sussex made an impromptu address in which she apologized for arriving a few days late to the Games.
Meghan stated at the party for the competitors’ friends and family, “It’s so special to be here, and I’m sorry I’m a little late for the party.”
“I had to spend a little more time getting our little ones settled at home and get them to drop off.
“Three milkshakes and a school drop-off and I just landed a couple of hours ago, and I am thrilled that the first event I can do for Invictus is here with all of you. It’s amazing and I hear it has got off to a good start so far.”
Meghan expressed her excitement at being a part of the event and welcomed participants and fans as her “Invictus family.”
She also stated that she would like to attend the ceremony with her children, Prince Archie, four, and Princess Lilibet, two.
Harry, the Invictus Games’ founding patron, kicked off the event on Saturday night and has been there every day since, watching the wheelchair rugby game and the athletics.
