I have my own struggles going on right now- seizures and severe mental illness. So my dad said look at this thread- get some inspiration. He's pretty smart.

And that's what this venture is all about :) Glad to hear you've been inspired by this great organization and the brave people involved in the games.

I know many people will see it differently, but in my opinion Prince Harry should be given the Garter! His tireless work for the servicemen and -women he started some years ago by now, his tremendous work for the crown both at home and abroad justifies that. He gives the monarchy a human, warm hearted face and he really is the sweetheart of the royal family!

It is not you to judge that! If the Prince says, quite correctly, "it is about the veterans, not me!", it is all right and well fitting. If it is you to say that, it is an insult!

I agree with you on how Harry has really put heart and soul into the work he's done for returning service personnel and represents the Queen brilliantly wherever he goes. One thing about what Harry does is that he has a natural ability to make whatever he's doing seem like a breeze and a whole lot of fun.

He was just awarded the KCVO last June by his grandmother so I expect it will be a while yet before he is invested in the Order of the Garter and IMHO, I think it would be more memorable and meaningful if his father invested him.

And now... back to the games.

Yes he most certainly is. I don't think Harry would want any award, for him it's all about the veterans

It will be terrific if the Invictus Games does come to Australia in 2018. It will be even better if it is held in Melbourne, the sporting capital of the Southern Hemisphere!

Oh that's so nice and good he is still fighting on I had a close family member who suffered like him. More people getting behind the games is great.

Whatever one may think of how the media cover Harry at the Invictus games, let alone the questions he has been asked... he has undeniable been given a good press over the past few days in the foreign papers.

The Danish tabloid BT has on every day for the past few days had at least one prominently placed positive story about Harry. They admittedly more or less copy-paste from Daily Mail but it's still good PR.
Here is today's story to illustrate my point: Prins Harry hylder dræbt dansker i rørende åbningstale

The QEII and Harry "bomb" had a couple of minutes on the main news as well. (The Obamas were mentioned too, but less so).
So I'd say he is good ambassador for the Invictus Games.

That's so cool! I love it, hope in the future this inspires other celebrities to join to increase the popularity of the games even more.
