How royals inspire British people to give to charities. Harry's promotion of the recent Invictus Games has paid dividends, as he leads in this survey.

Maybe I should put my question here....since I am considering writing to Prince Harry regarding the wounded warrior games here in Hawaii....is it at all possible that he would consider coming to Hawaii to make an appearance at the games. I know it's the U.S. but..since he is an advocate of wounded soldiers it would be quite an experience for our military men and women who travel far and wide to participate in this event to have the privilege of meeting the Prince and for the Prince to be able to be a positive and encouraging figure for them. It seems to be a cause that is very near and dear to his heart. Would he even be allowed to make an appearance like that? I just need some opinions on the matter.

Why wouldn't he The Invictus games were just in Florida and he was there. He has been to the US plenty. British royals aren't restricted to Commonwealth. It wouldn't count as an official event for him unless invited by the government but that never stops him. He is off on a 'private trip' working in Africa, because he was not invited. It would be a matter of finances, security and logistics with his schedule if he could make it.

Never hurts to ask. Maybe ask for a video message of support as an alternative choice.

My newspaper today...

Two states of Australia are bidding to host the 2018 Invictus Games - Queensland and NSW.

The 2000 Sydney Olympic Games venues would be used if NSW gets the job - with the opening ceremony to be held at the Opera House.

Harry's Invictus Games attracts bids for 2017 from Queensland and NSW, but NSW Returned Services League (the organisation set up to look after our vets) is apparently having trouble with their finances.

NSW government bypasses state RSL branch in bid for Prince Harry's Invictus Games

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.
