Giving interviews to People, Hello, The Today Show and Good Morning America isn't going to get you serious coverage.

Maybe an evening news program will contact Harry and go more in depth.

Harry's already got a tremendous amount of attention for the Games and the athletes. He's trending on social media, gained praise from Twitter, blogs, comments on online newspapers and posters on Forums for his efforts. He gave an interview to the Sunday Times. Is that serious enough?

Other royals, one notices, have been featured on People and Hello etc, haven't they Rudolph?
And at least they've had more to write about with these Games which Harry has so successfully promoted, than his hair and clothes!

Serious enough isn't really an issue here. In today's time, it is about getting out to as many as possible. The magazines like People, and shows like GMA have a HUGE fan base. They are read and watched in numerous countries. The fact that Harry is trending on Instagram and twitter, and is all over the news, is a clear sign that he is doing something right.

Fox Sports probably not going to want to promote an event on ESPN.
Fox/fox sports have promoted the game. No interviews directly but they have shown their support.

of course they are going to ask about him and family but the majority has been placing the focus on the veterans and wounded soldiers. on the Invictus Games

Certainly you have a point. We forget Harry has editorial control over the articles and chooses the titles. Not to mention he presents interviewers with a list of questions to ensure his mother and George can be included. I mean the clips would take time to arrange of his mother, so he must give them at least a day or two.

It was a fantastic opening ceremony, wasn't it? I have read several people's comments on it, who said they were very moved by it all, and some cried.

Prince Henry and Mrs Obama opened the Invictus Games | Blogs•Spletnik.ru

It appears Prince Henry has found his niche. There is something inherently sad about the games.

Why sad? I think the athletes' efforts are inspiring!

Results from the Games can be found at: Results - Invictus Games 2016 - Orlando - May 8 - 12 - ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex

Sadly, especially given the trash talk between the Obamas and Harry/the Queen they are not tracking team totals. And yes, the Queen did not trash talk. She merely reacted appropriately to trash talk.

It was comedic trash talk and not to be taken literally I think. I found it quite humorous and considered it friendly bantering.

Not just good natured but good marketing

The best way to get the word out is not interviews. It is social media. I bet 10 times as many people saw the twitter/Instagram/facebook/youtube of the banter between the sides then they did the interviews.

Lots of photos of competitors from the first round.

And an inspiring story.

"Sports" networks stopped being about sports a long time ago. It's about ratings and they're desperately trying to remain relevant by focusing on human interest pieces instead of sports. Although Invictus has been covered pretty well for something that doesn't relate to the NFL or college football; the two biggest draws for American sports fans.
