I don't think the Closing Ceremony was featured in the CC again. That online site is completely hopeless.

I hope it keeps going too. I wonder why they would even consider ending it. It seems to me something that will just keep getting bigger and bigger.

My understanding is that Harry initially thought it would have a "shelf life" because the main conflicts that resulted in so many injured veterans was winding down. If that happens, then there would be a lack of competitors.

"The Prince has previously hinted that the Games had a "shelf life", with plans for five years of games laid out before it was believed he and competitors would quietly move on." 'Sky's the limit' for Invictus Games, says Prince Harry, claiming he feels 'social responsibility' to help more veterans

I guess this would be kind of a blessing - that fewer soldiers were being wounded in conflicts since there are fewer conflicts.

Agreed. I think this has turned into a much bigger thing than Harry anticipated. Based on his comments last week, it now seems to be a fluid situation.

That makes sense.

It may be that they've run into some internal issues that indicate a different sort of organizational setup would be needed to keep things going indefinitely. But that could be figured out.

The games themselves seem to be of great value to the wounded warriors who participate. Even if military engagements diminish in number, the folks competing now have years left in which they could find it quite important to have this annual goal to work towards, not to mention the companionship that comes from gathering with so many others in a similar situation to their own.

It looks windy. They appear very happy together, and in high spirits, engaged and interested in what's going on and with those around them.

Am I the only one who saw the guy kiss Meghan on the cheek in the 1st video? Seems like people are getting a little too comfortable.

I saw it too, but I didn't know if that's normal or not. I think I've seen videos of Diana and Kate at Polo in the past where the players shake hands with them and then kiss on the cheek. So I thought that's normal.

Harry knows many of the competitors and hopefuls in the IG by name. He may know Harry and Meghan.

Thanks for those videos Dman. It's obvious that Meghan as well as Harry has an effortless easy manner when chatting to people, like Harry, and lovely to see.

Meghan confirms she will be attending the games in Sidney. Not that we didn't already figure as much but nice that it is official.

Via Omid's tweet:

Meghan confirmed she'll be at @InvictusSydney, telling Michael Mellon (who competed in sitting volleyball and wheelchair basketball last year): "She told me she had never been to Australia but was going to this year’s event and really looking forward to being there with Harry."

The showing the ring off in the beginning is annoying, but I'm glad she's dressed appropriately (no torn jeans, logo T-shirt, flat shoes) and that she's not clinging to Harry for dear life, so points for improvement.
