Spectacular start to the Invictus Games with medals already won and a great opening ceremony. Come on Australia!

Prince Harry, James Blunt and Michelle Obama take to the stage for Invictus Games opening ceremony in Florida - 9news.com.au

Also, Harry speaks about how the idea for the Invictus Games began, when he was transporting a wounded Danish soldier back to base.

Ostensibly, the interviews are supposed to be about the games but it receives only a footnote.

He's asked about his love life, he's asked about George and Charlotte and he's asked about his mother and towards the end the games are mentioned.

Even the First Lady said, "If you haven't already fallen in love with him you have to see him with his nephew."

Rebecca English said a couple of days ago on Twitter, the reason British press didn't go to Florida, it was announced Harry wouldn't be giving the tabloids interviews and she said the cost was too much just to cover Invictus.

It's too bad the focus for so many is on Harry and his personal life, and not on the veterans competing in the games.

I don't understand why the sports or news reporters didn't go to cover the athletes competing. The Paralympics got way more coverage in the UK than they get in the US. There are well known UK Paralympians. Why not cover the people competing in the Games? They all have a interesting story how they got there. It didn't have to be the Royal reporters going.

Harry was on GMB this morning talking about his mother, he was on Good Morning America today and we heard about George in his bath robe and Harry being an uncle.

He talked to the BBC about dating and his right to privacy. His interview with Hello is mostly about his personal life. His Times interview was the best but again we got to read about Prince George.

Sure Invictus gets mentioned but it seems like the media won't interview him just for Invictus, he needs to talk about his personal life as well

Can't resist, can you, Rudolph?

Anyway, the athletes have said they've felt inspired by being able to compete in the international arena, and that's the whole point of these Games!

In Harry's defense, its the interviewers bringing up George not Harry. And a lot of the questions, he deflects and doesn't speak about George directly. In the GMA interview, he looks visibly uncomfortable when MO and Robin were talking about George.

If KP said beforehand that Harry was going to only talk about Invitcus, are the press going to say pass on interviewing him?

Harry has done a huge amount to publicise these Games right from the beginning and has tried as hard as he can to bring the athletes who are competing into focus. They've praised him for being there for them, and that's all that matters.

You are absolutely correct. It is a shame that Harry is spending time with these shows as they only want the "gossip" type interviews with laughing and flirting garbage along with light hearted questions. I personally believe Harry should have been interviewed on ESPN, Fox Sports, etc. Those are the interviewers that are interested in the sport and trials that these wonderful young men are going through. Regular morning TV "News" shows have really become a joke.

Fox Sports probably not going to want to promote an event on ESPN.
