Meghan Markle joins Prince Harry at Invictus Games | Daily Mail Online

Love her dress and shoes.

I had not expected her to be sitting right next to him, but she is close enough if he wants to keep an eye on her.

The headline is misleading. She did not attend the ceremony with Harry. One would expect that, at this point in their relationship, they should have attended the opening ceremony together, not least because the Invictus Games are not technically an official state event, but rather one of Harry's private initiatives.

If she was officially his fiancée or wife she would have.

I get your point, but overseas in modern English actually means " in, from, or to other countries" and not necessarily in another continent, as the word would literally suggest.

I'm glad Meghan made an appearance, if nothing else, it will quiet some of the press frenzy. At least temporarily.

Although I see the DM is having a field day comparing Meghan's clothing to what Kate wore when she first began attending events.

I will search but just wondered if anyone happened to be around who knew of that link that you can use to block your location when trying to view websites? I had been watching the live stream for IG but it's now geo blocked me :(

Very sweet manner with Harry here. Strikes me that Harry may be nervous and that's endearing. Though maybe it's more like he is following Mr Trudeau's lead. Can we assume they know each other socially?

P.S. Look at those socks on the Prime Minster!

I watched the entire opening ceremonies and I have to say that one of the people that impressed me the most was Justin Trudeau. The man has a presence and a way about him that just oozes with charm and self confidence. The way he bounded onto the stage and totally drew the people in.

I have to admit that at first I had no clue who he was. I watched the ceremony without sound and as it was not closed captioned, I didn't *hear* what he had to say but caught most of it because the man is easy to lip read. I think Canada has really lucked out with this man as he really seems to be a guy that is open, honest and very easy to like.

I can easily see a good friendship developing between Harry and Justin and not just because Meghan is already friends with the Trudeau family but because, in many ways, Harry and Justin are alike in their enthusiasm for life.

I was impressed with the opening ceremonies. Actually, very little focus was even put on Harry, let alone Meghan. It was about the games, the athletes and their families. I can just imagine Harry's pride in how it all went, how the IGs are creating something very real that will continue to grow for years. Meghan being there actually was of interest to those that have some kind of an interest in their relationship. Nothing at all took the focus away from the games and the athletes though and that's what I liked about it.

Coming out party

The invictus games are about the athletes and celebrating them. Miss Markle for me seems too over anxious to be recognized. Furthermore, it makes me think the Prince too is more focused on introducing her to the public rather than his commitment to the games.

You have to be kidding me! I've watched as much as the lead up to the games as I possibly could and then the entire opening ceremonies. No where during that time was Meghan even mentioned.

Harry, at no time, "introduced" her to the public. There was absolutely no time that we saw them together. Harry put *all* his attention into why he was there. The Invictus Games. Meghan did attend the opening ceremony but if you didn't know they were a couple before hand, you wouldn't have known they were a couple after all was said and done.

Maybe you were watching something other than I was? What part gave you the impression that you have?

It was really nice to see Meghan at the Invitcus Games yesterday. She looked great! I hope she can attend some of the other Invitcus events too.

Harry gets to pat a new friend, and some more inspirational stories of Invictus athletes. It's clear just how highly regarded Harry is by these competitors, many of whom he knows by name (and that's not just the British team.) He receives heaps of praise for his cheeriness, helpful attitude and empathy.

Yep. I'm glad she attended. And I loved her look, especially the jacket and shoes.

Let's keep this thread focused on the actual Invictus Games.
