Prince Harry and Meghan Markle once again presented a united front at the Invictus Games, where they were seen walking hand in hand alongside NATO officials before posing for photographs.
Their day began with a meeting with military leaders, after which they immersed themselves in the tournament’s sixth day, dedicated to injured service members and veterans.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex wore bright smiles as they posed for pictures. Meghan looked radiant in a bronze silk shirt paired with beige trousers, while Harry exuded style in his suit.

Today’s schedule included attending the sitting volleyball and table tennis competitions. The previous day, the couple charmed the crowds when they attended a wheelchair basketball match.
Meghan’s attire turned heads, as she sported cream-tailored shorts from Staud, a sweater blazer by J Crew, and her beloved Chanel slingbacks, a staple in her wardrobe over the years. Notably, she adorned herself with a £7,000 Cartier bracelet and Princess Diana’s Cartier Tank Watch, valued at £21,400.
This event followed recent accusations that senior royals had neglected veterans from the British Armed Forces due to ongoing tensions within the royal family.
Athletes and veterans expressed frustration over the lack of acknowledgment from the royal family, particularly Prince William and Kate, despite their significant involvement in the tournament’s launch by Prince Harry in London back in 2014.
A prominent media strategist commented on the perceived “snub,” describing it as “mean-spirited” on the part of the senior royals, emphasizing that any grievances against Harry should not overshadow the remarkable achievements of the Invictus competitors.
Ben McBean, a former Royal Marine and double-amputee Afghanistan veteran who inspired Prince Harry to establish the games, expressed that other royals should have shown their support with a simple shout-out.
However, palace sources countered these claims, explaining that members of the royal family typically refrain from getting involved in each other’s professional endeavors.
They drew a parallel with Harry not being expected to vocally support Prince William’s environmentalism campaign, the Earthshot Prize, and cited this as the reason other royals chose not to participate directly in the Invictus Games, leaving it to the Duke to champion the cause.
