“You are Invictus” Prince Harry Tells Competitors During Invictus Games Closing Ceremony
Prince Harry has congratulated the competitors of this year’s Invictus Games during the event’s closing ceremony at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto on Saturday evening.
“Right now you’re on a high. At the summit of a mountain many of you thought was too high to climb. You have done it. This is the moment, right here, right now, shoulder to shoulder, you are Invictus,” he told the 500-plus athletes from 17 countries during his speech, before giving them a parting challenge:
“Don’t just move on from these games with happy memories. Instead, make an Invictus goal for yourselves. Let the examples of service and resilience that you have seen inspire you to take action to improve something big or small, in your life, for your family or in your community. It doesn’t matter how big or small your step is — just take it.”
The Prince also took in part of the ceremony from a private box on one side of the arena where he joined his girlfriend, Meghan Markle, her mother Doria Radland, and several friends.
Musicians Kelly Clarkson, Bruce Springsteen and Bryan Adams formed the ceremony’s entertainment.Filed under The United Kingdom
