We will do a great job but it will be our way. I really don't think the idea behind the games is to outshine the one before. The last thing we need is another event that's all about spending money big name acts etc

I've a question here. The Invictus Games are solely Harry's passion and something he put into motion. This year, its being held in Toronto, Canada. I'm sure Harry will be very visible at these games but I'm wondering if any of the events surrounding these Invictus Games would be classified as "official" events (as in listed in the Court Circular). As its on Canadian soil, wouldn't anything "official" have to be on the invite of the Canadian government?

All events with Invictus are CC engagements.

At last year's games, Harry got CC recognition for attending the launch of the 2017 Games in Toronto (May 2), for flying from Toronto to Florida for the games (May 3), for attending the Opening of the games (May 8), and for attending the games themselves (May 9, 10, 11, and 12), and for attending the Closing of the games (May 12).

I think the thing that people are forgetting here is that Invictus isn't simply something Harry does because it's a cause he's passionate about. Invictus is Harry at work. He is an official patron of this charity and is "working" when he's attending it. While previous royal girlfriends have attended events that have been personal to Harry or William, this is not a comparable event. Family weddings, graduations, etc aren't the same - those are personal events that get recognition in the CC. Invictus isn't. He's working this event.

Thanks for clearing that up for me. As always, this is the best place to ask questions and know you're going to get answers.

A wonderful and inspirational Express article about what Invictus means to her from Sgt Mary Wilson who fought back from depression after being medically discharged following service in Afghanistan.
She lavishes praise on Harry too, for his encouragement of the competitors, his backing and his banter, making them all feel better. She's convinced some of them wouldn't be here now if it wasn't for Harry and his founding of the Invictus Games. It's a real feel-good story, I think.

Harry’s Invictus Games gave me back my pride, says Sgt MARY WILSON | Express Comment | Comment | Express.co.uk

You are confusing this with state visits, I believe. It can be in CC even if he's not there on invitation from the government.

I would also love to be there for the opening ceremonies in Toronto. Seeing as that is not going to happen, I think the best thing we can do is hope that with our own Tiggersk8 being there that she carries all our best wishes to the games for us and hopefully share her experiences with us. I'm looking forward to that.

You're making me blush Osipi. . I managed to find one of two must haves last night, which is a T shirt I have w/a Teddy Bear waving our Maple Leaf flag proudly, but do you think Mom & I could find our spare big flag we have for our flag pole? Nope!! The search continues tonight, but if it doesn't turn up, Dad's got a Dr's appt tomorrow & I'll get one then.

I have tickets for the Opening Ceremonies, Swimming Finals (The Pan Am Water Sports Complex's just too far out for 2 trips there & back) & both Prelim & Finals for Wheelchair Rugby. The other Events I'm interested in, like Wheelchair Tennis, are in Public Areas like Nathan Phillips Square & are free. I also hope to make it out to the Zoo, as it'll be the last chance I'll have to see the Pandas, & the Blue Jays are playing their final Homestand starting tonight & ending Sunday, so I hope I'm able to get to one Jays game at least.

Not too much longer to go!!

An athlete says they're not sure if Harry knows how many lives have been saved by starting the Invictus Games.
