Agreed. I think this has turned into a much bigger thing than Harry anticipated. Based on his comments last week, it now seems to be a fluid situation.

That makes sense.

It may be that they've run into some internal issues that indicate a different sort of organizational setup would be needed to keep things going indefinitely. But that could be figured out.

The games themselves seem to be of great value to the wounded warriors who participate. Even if military engagements diminish in number, the folks competing now have years left in which they could find it quite important to have this annual goal to work towards, not to mention the companionship that comes from gathering with so many others in a similar situation to their own.

It looks windy. They appear very happy together, and in high spirits, engaged and interested in what's going on and with those around them.

Am I the only one who saw the guy kiss Meghan on the cheek in the 1st video? Seems like people are getting a little too comfortable.

I saw it too, but I didn't know if that's normal or not. I think I've seen videos of Diana and Kate at Polo in the past where the players shake hands with them and then kiss on the cheek. So I thought that's normal.

Harry knows many of the competitors and hopefuls in the IG by name. He may know Harry and Meghan.

Thanks for those videos Dman. It's obvious that Meghan as well as Harry has an effortless easy manner when chatting to people, like Harry, and lovely to see.

Meghan confirms she will be attending the games in Sidney. Not that we didn't already figure as much but nice that it is official.

Via Omid's tweet:

Meghan confirmed she'll be at @InvictusSydney, telling Michael Mellon (who competed in sitting volleyball and wheelchair basketball last year): "She told me she had never been to Australia but was going to this year’s event and really looking forward to being there with Harry."

The showing the ring off in the beginning is annoying, but I'm glad she's dressed appropriately (no torn jeans, logo T-shirt, flat shoes) and that she's not clinging to Harry for dear life, so points for improvement.

I don’t know. I thought her choice of shoes were weird. A nice pair of tennis shoes would be nice and her hair in a ponytail but other than that. I agree with you.

The woman walking them around is how I would of thought.

Meghan never needed to "improve". Of all the royal brides to marry into the BRF in the past 50 years, I think Meghan is the most well adjusted to the role before the wedding to come along. She gets right into the thick of doing things.

Meghan compliments Harry and Harry compliments Meghan. You don't see Prince Harry and his fiancee nor do you see Meghan Markle with Harry somewhere in the background. You see HarryandMeghan as a team.

Its not about a ring or the clothes but about what they do together and from what I've seen, what matters to one, matters to the other and they're a united front that is going to be formidable wherever they go.

So, when it comes to the Invictus Games, they'll be there taking in the entire e event and I'm looking forward to that. I loved the Toronto games.

BTW: there is a separate thread for discussing Meghan's fashions and looks.

I fail to see how Meghan clings to Harry for dear life. From what I've seen for everyone one of their engagements, they are quite openly tactile with each other, but I don't see anyone overly needy to clingy here.

I hate to disagree, but I feel we all have room to improve, always. I think if you asked Meghan she would be the first to admit it.

I don't question at all their bond ATM, and yes that is a great thing for a 'team' and hopefully they will be energetic and do many good things for the betterment of the UK.
