The Invictus Games released a new promotional video encouraging fans to purchase tickets to the opening and closing ceremonies for the upcoming sporting event, which will be held in Dusseldorf in September 2023. The majority of the clip shows athletes who are going to be competing in the event, and halfway through Prince Harry appeared to play table tennis. Then, to conclude the trailer, Meghan Markle made a surprise appearance and challenged her husband to a game. spoke to body language expert Judi James about the clip. 

One of Meghan’s first public appearances with Harry was at an Invictus Games and over the years, she has attended and supported her husband at each event. 

But Judi said it was a bit surprising to see the Duchess appear in the promotional video. 

The expert commented: “A big part of the joke in this dramatic, monochrome promo is that Meghan really doesn’t do sports, at least not as part of her public profile, making her rather knowing nod to Harry right at the end look ironic.” 

As for Harry, Judi claimed: “It’s a rather odd cameo appearance during this ad for Harry’s Invictus Games. 

“Table tennis is made to look like some sort of combative sport in an arena that suggests boxing rather than ping pong balls. 

“Clearly the Invictus teams play it full, fast pelt and Harry’s smug smile seems to be wiped off his face rather quickly, which is fun.” 

She continued: “But then Meghan pops up in a rather disjointed clip as though offering to take him on in a game and presumably get a bit of a cheer from the audience for the sudden appearance.

“The cheeky comedy stuff clearly plays to what Harry sees as his strengths but after making the sportsmen and women the stars of the show the attention does all seem to end on Meghan. 

“It shows Harry and Meghan in a good-humoured light though, with Harry presumably delighted to see his wife join in with the magic surrounding the games he loves so much,” Judi said. 

The trailer is called A Home for Respect and encourages fans to become part of it. 

It sees a variety of athletes take part in several games of table tennis before Prince Harry steps in and then finally, he faces his wife. 

All the athletes in the trailer are dressed for an intense table tennis battle, but Meghan has chosen an outfit that’s a little more stylish. 

She was presumably wearing a black Invictus Games polo shirt which had been tucked into a pair of white or light colour jeans, with a dark belt. 

As with all other Invictus Games events, she was also wearing Princess Diana’s Tank Cartier watch on her left hand.

In terms of other jewellery, alongside her engagement ring and another ring on her little finger, Meghan wore her late mother-in-law’s butterfly pavé stud earrings. 

She first wore the earrings for the official start of her and Prince Harry’s Australian royal tour in 2018 following the news they were expecting their first baby.  

The earrings are reportedly a gift from Harry to Meghan to mark the pregnancy. 

The Invictus Games takes place 9 to the 16 of September next year in Düsseldorf. 

Tickets for the opening ceremony start from just €33 and the majority of seats at the Merkur Spiel-Arena appeared to have already sold out.
