I agree with you on how Harry has really put heart and soul into the work he's done for returning service personnel and represents the Queen brilliantly wherever he goes. One thing about what Harry does is that he has a natural ability to make whatever he's doing seem like a breeze and a whole lot of fun.

He was just awarded the KCVO last June by his grandmother so I expect it will be a while yet before he is invested in the Order of the Garter and IMHO, I think it would be more memorable and meaningful if his father invested him.

And now... back to the games.

He gives the monarchy a human, warm hearted face and he really is the sweetheart of the royal family!

Yes he most certainly is. I don't think Harry would want any award, for him it's all about the veterans

It will be terrific if the Invictus Games does come to Australia in 2018. It will be even better if it is held in Melbourne, the sporting capital of the Southern Hemisphere!

Oh that's so nice and good he is still fighting on I had a close family member who suffered like him. More people getting behind the games is great.

Whatever one may think of how the media cover Harry at the Invictus games, let alone the questions he has been asked... he has undeniable been given a good press over the past few days in the foreign papers.

The Danish tabloid BT has on every day for the past few days had at least one prominently placed positive story about Harry. They admittedly more or less copy-paste from Daily Mail but it's still good PR.
Here is today's story to illustrate my point: Prins Harry hylder dræbt dansker i rørende åbningstale

The QEII and Harry "bomb" had a couple of minutes on the main news as well. (The Obamas were mentioned too, but less so).
So I'd say he is good ambassador for the Invictus Games.

Gotcha! My fault for not reading the article. A lot of times I skip over articles from the DM.
