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.

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
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.

"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.

I have my own struggles going on right now- seizures and severe mental illness. So my dad said look at this thread- get some inspiration. He's pretty smart.

And that's what this venture is all about :) Glad to hear you've been inspired by this great organization and the brave people involved in the games.
