Prince Harry goes Skeleton racing!

Once again, Harry took on the winter with aplomb, opting to get on a bobsled and try out a risky Skeleton run during day two of the camp. 

After his run, he was asked how it felt and enthusiastically responded: “Great!” and encouraged everyone to give it a go before holding out his hand for his wife.

After one run on the track, Harry went again, citing the desire to beat 100 kmph. 

After his second go around, he told HELLO! that it was “even better” and wanted to “keep going ’til the sun goes down!” When another reporter asked Meghan if she would go too, she exclaimed: “No way!”

When Did Prince Harry Set Up The Invictus Games?

Harry founded the Invictus Games in 2014 – an international adaptive multi-sport event in which wounded, injured or sick armed services personnel and veterans participate.

It celebrates the power of sport in recovery and how it can help, physically or psychologically, those suffering from injuries or illness.

The first event took place in London and since then has been held in Orlando in 2016, Toronto in 2017, Sydney in 2018, The Hague in 2022 and Dusseldorf in 2023.
