Prince Harry gave an
extraordinarily rare interview to People as he attends the Invictus Games
in The Hague, Netherlands. The Duke of Sussex reflected on the full-circle
moment he and Meghan had this weekend when the two attended the games together
after first making their public debut as a couple at the 2017
Invictus Games in Toronto. Harry, who served in the British Army, founded the
games for wounded veterans to compete in.
“There is nowhere you can feel
more embraced and supported than with the Invictus family,” he told People.
“The Toronto Games were our first time out and about publicly in an official
way. We were dating at the time, so it was a lot to take in, but fortunately,
we were with the perfect community for that.”
“Now, five years later, here
we are in The Hague at the fifth Invictus Games, as parents of two [to Archie,
almost 3, and Lili, almost 1], and living in the U.S. I had always wanted to
share these incredible moments with someone special, and to have Meg by my side
means everything,” Harry continued.
Meghan and Harry visited the Queen—their first time seeing her together
face-to-face since they stepped back from their senior royal family roles in
2020—before heading to the Netherlands. Meghan returned to California on
Monday, where their daughter and son remained.
