From popcorn swipers to Mark "Iron Man" Ormrod to the "above and beyond" team from Afghanistan, to the celebratory mood of everyone in the stadium for the closing ceremonies, to the VIPs and musicians that were there, to a very special ginger haired "Mr. Prince" and most of all to each and every one that perhaps were a little bit more inspired and determined to celebrate life, the 2017 Invictus Games can definitely be deemed a huge success.

Now onwards to 2018 Invictus Games in Sydney, Australia!!
Very well said!

OMG! Kelly Clarkson, Bruce “The Boss’ Springsteen, and Bryan Adams tore that place apart. I truly enjoyed that show!!!

I was beyond moved by all the competing wounded warriors and their very supportive families and friends. They all did a fantastic job and they should be really proud by their achievements.

Harry has outdone himself once again. The man has put on one incredible INVICTUS GAMES ever! The whole team, crew and security did a beautiful job.

Must’ve meant the world to Harry to have his girlfriend, Meghan Markle, by his side. Along with her friends and now her her mother.

I thank President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and Mrs. Jill Biden for coming out to support our USA Invictus Men and Women Warriors and all the other competing warriors.

I feel truly inspired by everyone who took part this year!

On to Sydney, Australia- Invictus Games 2018!!!!

There we have it. Amid all the events and "official" things Harry kept himself busy with during this past week with the games, it has to be so heartwarming to also know that he's been able to spend time not only with Meghan, but also with her mother and made it a point that mom was included in coming to the closing ceremonies tonight. It was a striking point too, I think, that Harry did go and sit with them rather than stay in a VIP area as he did with the opening ceremonies.

Additional views of Harry in the box with Meghan and her Mom with some PDA:

Harry closing out the event was particularly uplifting telling everyone who participated and watched to let this Invictus Games inspire them to be of service to others, and to be resilient in their own lives.

I agree! I'm super excited about these games - I think this could really become a thing - it's lovely to see how The Obamas and Bidens still support them - and Toronto really showed up so well too. This will be amazing to see in Australia too. That might be worth a trip.

I really hope these games catch on like The Olympics - that would be something.

Oh and Meghan's mom Doria makes me want to go work out. Now.

What's great about yoga is it's never too late, ever. Just saw an article about a woman starting up yoga in her 90's (she's now 105). Pretty limber and looking great.

The Invictus Games were an absolute success, and Harry was great. I'm so glad he got to share some of it with Meghan, and I'm so glad her mother joined the closing ceremony. Lovely pictures, Harry and Meghan look so happy.

Good grief she even looks gorgeous in grainy/fuzzy pics!

The pics of Harry talking to her mom...you can tell they have already developed a relationship ..they are comfortable with each other. More than a few meetings/discussions have gone on there before.

The pics of Harry and Meghan are quite charming and very much tell the story of how they feel about each other.

It is great thing that there is this event for these servicemen and their families. They sacrifice so much and too many men and women come home wounded in mind and or body. I hope the games continue as long as they are needed.

Man - you just can't get a bad shot of Meghan - she looks gorgeous in each and every last one! No awkward face - just gorgeous. Her mom has the same gift. Wow.

I'm gonna see if I can find footage of the actual game they were watching on Friday - they seemed focused a lot on one of the USA basketball players - wondering if he was a standout star or something.

If you ask me, each and every athlete that participated in the games, win or lose, are "stars" in their own right. That's what the games were all about. To be honest, other than some of the athletes that were profiled and their stories told, I don't think much emphasis was put on individuality but it was more on the teams.

As I've said before, Meghan could wear a potato sack and look drop dead gorgeous. I don't think its all physical beauty either. There is just an aura of something very genuine about her. Like HM, The Queen, when she smiles, she smiles with her whole face and her eyes sparkle and she comes across as being very, very real. That's what happens when you're comfortable with your freckles.

Agree about the team emphasis - just looking at the DF photos and there was one USA basketball player that got a lot of pictures - even one with Harry - so I just wondered if the media focus on him was because he was a player that stood out or had a big game.

It turns out a player from Denmark had the most points in the game though - looks like it was the USA team effort that won them the game. And the game was actually really close.
