Which you have clearly pointed out. And which the rest of us have said is simply pointed out is a by-product of how she is standing. Unless you have an inside source to her mindset, or a photo where she is intentionally (without a doubt) showing off her ring to someone.

This is pointless run around. And this page is about the IG not about a ring. If you have a picture to back your belief she is intentionally flashing it, I will look forward to the post where it belongs, on the fashion thread.

Back to the IG.

For the love of.....

Please note that several snarky posts have been deleted.

The discussion on Meghan and whether or not she is showing off her ring is well past its sell date.

Any and all additional posts will be deleted without notice.

Let's stay on topic.

They both look very happy. As they'll be out here in October for the IG. it's a good opportunity for Meghan to meet our PM Malcolm Turnbull and his wife Lucy. Saw the Australian High Commissioner Alexander Downer greeting them also.

A clip of Harry trying to grab Meghan's attention to introduce her to someone. He was unsuccessful until he called her "Meg"

Kind of cute to hear him slip into that fiance mode.

Makes sense...think of all the people screaming her name at some of these events...Meg (and his voice) would get her attention.

Very sweet

Have to confess it took me several viewings before I caught a possible 'Meg'. I kept hearing Meghan, but it makes sense. Her family has referenced her as Meg. Wonder if after the wedding the tabloids will start calling her Princess Meg?

I've been seeing ads for the Invictus Games on buses and taxis around Sydney for a couple of weeks, and now I'm starting to see TV ads on the ABC about their coverage of it.

This is excellent news. Harry said in Toronto that he hoped the Invictus Games would continue beyond Sydney and now it is! Before the wedding various Royal correspondents hinted that Harry and Meghan would be visiting the Netherlands in coming months.

So, no IG for 2019? It's not without precedent as the case with Orlando after London. Or did I miss something?

Although it hasn't been announced, I don't believe Meghan will go to this if it's at the end of July. I imagine they'd want to save the goodwill and publicity of the first trip abroad for something bigger and longer.

Maybe it will become a bi yearly thing? I can see that happening. It is also a great way to expand it.

Given that they wanted to quit, it makes sense to make it a biennial event instead of a yearly event.

As the Invictus Games is something that, to me, personifies Harry's commitment to the men and women that serve in the armed forces, it makes me happy to see these games garner more and more recognition and strive onward to keep it going on a global basis.

Each occurrence of the Invictus Games seem to be bigger and more highlighted globally than the one before it and I hope to see that continue.

I certainly don't think Harry ever wanted it to end. It's just been a question of sponsorships, who is going to pay for the Games, given that it was only underwritten by the Ministry of Defence for the one year at the beginning. Sadly, the IG arent the sort of thing that bring in huge profits and crowds, so it's always had a shadow over it as far as ongoing costings are concerned.

I do think that bi-annual Games are probably better. This allows interest to grow, gives athletes time to recover between each tournament, and will hopefully give time to get those all important sponsorships on board.

Harry also discussed whether there would be enough participants who would be willing to train at a high level given the thought at the time being that the wars were winding down (a good thing). Many of the athletes, though, see IG as a good pre-cursor for the para-olympics, and IG has conducted some interesting research on how this model can help heal mental and physical trauma.

And unfortunately, troops are still getting injured or killed in the various conflicts going on.

So this was in large parts a big experiment that so far keeps paying off not only for the organizers but most importantly for the athletes themselves.

I think trying to do the Games every year doesn't make much sense. They are a massive undertaking and require a lot of planning for the organizers and the athletes.
