Today was the official announcement of Sydney hosting the Invictus Games in 2018 - and the TV evening news broadcast a lengthy report about it.

Footage of Prince Harry announcing Sydney was also shown.

I don't remember Harry making multiple trips to Orlando before that last one. Only thing I can recall was something in Washington DC. I guess Harry will be off to Australia for the 2018 games next year.

I love looking at pictures of such an event. Harry really seems to come across as "just one of the guys" rather than the patron in a suit being someone that all the others look up at. He meets these people at their level, enjoys interacting with them and is very involved with anything to do with the Invictus Games which was his brain child after seeing the Warrior Games in the US.

I'm looking forward to the games in Toronto this year.

Harry stays involved with British athletes like with today's event but his involvement with the 'Invictus Games' is now almost nothing.

The Games are more or less a franchise. Orlando was independent of London and Toronto is independent of Orlando.

Harry was in Canada to announce the games, he will return 18 months later to watch the games but everything in between is being done by the Toronto organising committee.

No doubt he is kept informed of progress but the last games where Harry was involved were London.

It's now handled locally by the host country. I wonder if the momentum can be maintained if it keeps being held each year. London basically pigbacked on the success of London 2012. Then there is 2 year gap to Orlando where you had the might of Disney and its tv networks like ESPN and ABC to promote it. Plus it was an Olympic year. Now it's a non Olympic year and the games are being held in late September, which is a busy sports time especially in the US and then in 2018 in Australia which is going to have significant travel cost to get to.

Prince takes on 'little Harry' at Invictus Games trials - BBC News

Harry has fun with little Harry as British wounded warriors prepare for the Invictus Games which Prince Harry started and remains enthusiastic about. A glowing report about Harry from Major Ekman who also met him.

And I'll bet he is looking forward to that tremendously. It's been quite a busy and full-on month for Harry.

The charming and lovely gesture of the Fiji team kneeling before Prince Harry at Twickenham has gone round the world. Below is a NZ report.

I certainly remember the Fijians doing so for Princess Anne when she presented them with medals as mentioned in this report. A nice gesture of respect.

It really is refreshing to be able to see public displays of respect towards another person in a world which seems to have erased respect from its dictionary. It makes me realize that there is still hope for this planet.
