First attending the welcome reception at PricewaterhouseCoopers in London, the Prince was joined by the captains of each team – the UK, the US, Denmark, Estonia, France, Italy, Canada, the Netherlands, Australia, Afghanistan, Georgia, New Zealand and Germany – for a photograph to mark the occasion before Wednesday’s opening ceremony.

It was then on to Dagenham Sports Centre, where Prince Harry met with some of the Games’ competitors during their final training sessions, and to New Zealand House for the New Zealand Invictus Games Team reception. The Prince was there treated to traditional Maori performances.

“I know how hard you’ve been working over the last few months and the British public — indeed the world — can’t wait to see you compete in just a few days,” Prince Harry said in a video released earlier in the day.

Over 400 wounded servicemen and women will be competing in the four-day event that will take place at venues in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and Lee Valley Athletics Centre.

Prince Harry will be attending all Invictus Games events, while he will be joined by the Prince of Wales, Duchess of Cornwall and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge for the opening ceremony.
