Prince Harry's New Invictus Games Video Puts Meghan Markle Front & Center as a Featured Attraction

There’s nothing quite like an unexpected appearance from Meghan Markle and Prince Harry together to garner support around a special cause. On Nov 30, the Invictus Games, an adaptive sports competition for wounded, injured and sick veterans, posted a new video on Twitter promoting next year’s event: The sixth-ever Invictus Games in Düsseldorf, Germany.

The cheeky black-and-white video starts off showing a group of people playing ping-pong with one another in an empty arena. A female player looks over to her opponent and smiles: the camera pans over to reveal that it’s Prince Harry, ready to battle it out. His opponent’s shot is too quick for him and he loses the point, leaving the match — and making way for Meghan’s cameo as the dramatic music builds.

The video ends with Harry and Meghan on either side of another ping pong table: Harry looks lovingly to his wife, then Meghan smiles and nods back, seemingly saying “game on” to her husband.

“Are you ready?” wrote the organization in the caption. “The incredible experience that is the #InvictusGames is coming ever closer.”

The caption continued, “Be a part of it to experience the power of sport in recovery in Düsseldorf 9-16 Sept 2023. Tickets for the Opening and Closing Ceremonies are now available!”

For those who follow Harry and his many charitable efforts, the Invictus Games will ring a familiar bell. In fact, the cause is close to the royal’s heart because he himself thought of the idea and created the organization.
