Sorry.. JLR = Jaguar Land Rover, the main sponsor of the IG.

He's sitting in Harry's section, directly behind FLOTUS, with the very yellow tie. He took to the stage as one of the speakers.

Livestream link for Invictus Games:
LIVESTREAM SCHEDULE – Invictus Games 2017

Prince Harry and Melania Trump Meet at Invictus Games

Also MM is in the audience at the opening ceremonies of Invictus sitting rows behind Prince Harry next to her friend, Markus Anderson. Contrary to the headline, this is not a 'first public appearance together' for M&H. Plus, they are not sitting together and most likely they will not appear together, because this is not about them.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Step Out for Their First Public Appearance Together in Toronto

In this video from last May, Prince Harry discusses how he got Queen Elizabeth to appear in the Invictus video promotion with him and First Lady Obama & President Obama:


At the very end of this May 2016 video promoting last year's games in Orlando, Prince Harry speaks about the importance of his private life remaining private. He feels that most of the public get it, and he appreciates their support in rallying around his work with the Invictus Games.

What a beautiful opening that was!!! I cheered on all the teams, loved the music and tears filled my eyes when listening to the wounded soldiers stories.

It looks like I can keep my cold turkey sandwich. Although they were not a prime focus, children and family was a thread running throughout the opening ceremony.

Nope. Meghan and Harry were not there "together" as during the ceremony, Harry was there in his official capacity and was seated with the other VIPs important to the games themselves. There is no way to construe anything whatsoever about Harry's private life from what I've seen with his involvement with the games in Toronto this year.

Let's keep the engagement talk out of this thread. You can discuss Meghan's attendance at the games, but discussions about Harry and Meghan's relationship should be taken to their thread.

I've had to edit a few posts, please remember the prior mod note about keeping politics out of the thread.

They were there "together" just seated apart. Most likely they arrived together and left together. It's great they didn't allow the media interest ruin their attendance.

Love the photos with Harry and the kids. He is so amazing with them. The little girl sure got a memory to keep

Opening ceremonies were amazing. Great start to what is sure to be an amazing event.

Not surprised Meghan is not officially with him. There to support but not in an official capacity just yet.

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 :(
