Prince Harry is currently watching the athletics at day three of this year’s Invictus Games in Dusseldorf.
In the audience, he is seated and conversing with Senator Gloria Orwoba of Kenya. Yulia Laputina, the Ukrainian Minister of Veteran Affairs, is seated next to him. Harry has met numerous representatives from the nations competing in the games while attending the events.
The Duke of Sussex has also been photographed applauding and encouraging the athletes as the competition begins. He was even spotted putting his hands over his lips during a 200-meter race amongst rivals.
During the week-long competition, Harry has stated that he intends to attend as many events as he can.
Although there has been much rumor over whether or not she will travel from California, his wife Meghan Markle is anticipated to join him in Germany tomorrow.
Harry has been addressing team members while watching the athletics from the stands, including Danish veteran Kasper Holm Henriksen, who was highlighted in the Netflix documentary Heart of Invictus.
The multisport event was founded by Harry to honor ill, injured, and wounded service members, both active-duty and veterans. This year’s games were officially begun on September 9.
This year’s competition will last through September 16 and has 550 athletes from 21 nations competing in both team sports and individual events.
The Duke of Sussex entered competition as soon as he arrived by taking part in the German edition of “Match of the Day,” which was aired on German station ZDF.
Along with two other guests and Germany’s Defense Minister Boris Pistorius, the Royal took part in a humorous goal wall challenge, and the smiling Prince was in excellent spirits during the penalty shootout.
Meghan was supposed to meet her husband at the games, but the Duchess’s appearance was questioned by a royal expert after her name didn’t show on the event’s official website.
Previously deleted text stated that Meghan will “take to the stage to host the intimate and moving glimpse into the extraordinary journeys of the Invictus Games competitors,” according to a source.
The removal of her name from the program, according to royal analyst Robert Jobson, was “very odd,” and she probably could skip the games to “avoid another media storm.”
Meghan was expected to “take to the stage” during the closing ceremony to deliver a portion about the competitors’ life, according to the official Invictus Games handbook.
However, if Meghan does go to the Olympics, it’s believed the couple will both stay in a sizable suite on the 17th floor of the opulent Hyatt Regency hotel, which costs £2,000 per night.
