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.

Prince takes on 'little Harry' at Invictus Games trials - BBC News

Harry has fun with little Harry as British wounded warriors prepare for the Invictus Games which Prince Harry started and remains enthusiastic about. A glowing report about Harry from Major Ekman who also met him.

And I'll bet he is looking forward to that tremendously. It's been quite a busy and full-on month for Harry.

The charming and lovely gesture of the Fiji team kneeling before Prince Harry at Twickenham has gone round the world. Below is a NZ report.

I certainly remember the Fijians doing so for Princess Anne when she presented them with medals as mentioned in this report. A nice gesture of respect.

It really is refreshing to be able to see public displays of respect towards another person in a world which seems to have erased respect from its dictionary. It makes me realize that there is still hope for this planet.

Whenever Harry gets involved in something, he really gets involved. Who better on the world stage to promote and draw attention to the Invictus Games than its patron. Even though the Sydney games are well over a year away, Harry is already doing what he can to promote them. That shows diligence. He's not just a figurehead adding his name to a cause. He actively supports it.

This is truly a person that is taking the world stage and making it his oyster and using it not for his own advantage but for the benefit of many other people.

On top of that, we also see him going to Singapore to participate in a polo game to benefit and promote his Sentebale charity in Lesotho.

I guess the moniker "Action Man" has been duly handed down from father to son from what I see. In this respect he is so much like his father in that he actively *does* things and in full force.

Gotta love Harry!!

A day of polo in Singapore and then a few days in Australia and at what cost. As Phil Dampier said on Twitter, "It's hard life"

I think you've set the bar pretty low Osipi. If this visit qualifies him as an 'action man', sign me up

I just keep remembering that what the public sees a royal doing is just the tip of the iceberg of the work a royal does.

It is indeed. There are meetings, paperwork, networking, promoting before most engagements. Harry is very much identified with the Invictus Games and they are in existence because of his hard work and inspiration. I'm sure we'll see the culmination in Toronto.

Prince Harry secures Sydney east waterfront mansion | Daily Mail Online

Could this be Prince Harry's Sydney home? The Royal's minders secure $400 million waterfront mansion ahead of his visit

"Kensington Palace have revealed more details about Prince Harry's exciting trip to Singapore and Sydney in June this year. According to the palace's official Twitter page, the Prince will attended an AFA (Action for AIDS) reception while in Singapore before taking part in an iftar, the breaking of the fast during Ramadan. He will also take part in the Royal Salute Cup in order to raise funds for Sentebale."

Further details released about Prince Harry's visit to Singapore and Sydney in June

Prince Harry has unveiled the UK team for his third Invictus Games at the Tower of London.

Something just isn't right with this headline. As long as I've been following Harry, I've never known him to be overly extreme in spending big bucks for something for a short stay in a place. Granted that the places he has stayed most likely weren't cheap by any means but this is kind of OTT.

I'm sure Harry will spend time in Sydney connected with the Invictus games but I don't see him getting a place like the Daily Fail seems to think.

I think some Sydney real estate people have been in touch with the DM. It reminds me a bit of that mansion in Norfolk Harry was going to snap up, according to the Press, and he'd probably never seen the place! I think Harry may very well stay in a nice discreet Sydney hotel and leave waterfront mansions to others.

The other odd thing is claiming Meghan will be there when the trip seems to overlap with ATX; her table read is June 11. It seems really unlikely that she's going to go from Toronto to Australia for a Wednesday - Saturday trip, then fly back via Texas.
