Hope the IG got some much needed funds from this. It's a pity Meghan couldn't go. Still, Harry looks as if he enjoyed himself, and is giving hugs as usual!

Why couldn’t Meghan go?

I imagine that she could have gone if she had wanted to but actually, this event, for Harry was "work". Harry isn't going to have Meghan along on every event he does and vice versa once Meghan starts doing solo engagements.

BTW: I'd love to see "Bat Out Of Hell" myself. I stood on stage once next to Meat Loaf when he was in the Detroit production of "Hair" and that man has such a powerful voice. I love his tunes.

Glad to see that Harry met Princess Margriet and was able to complete his mission at The Hague, for Invictus, his other baby!

I really enjoy the photos of him on the bike, and I couldn't figure why at first. Now that I look at it more, I just think Harry really enjoys being part of a team doing something together.

Primce Harry knew about the Dutch habit to kiss three times: smak-smak-smak with Princess Margriet.

The "daddy" jacket was a stroke of genius. I love how it says Invictus Family as the mood of the games is that all come together as a family for games to show just what they can do. To me, the Invictus Games have the flavor that we often see in the Special Olympics. Companionship, friendly competition and even caring enough about another competitor to choose to help and assist another rather than focus on the winning tape. Its why I love these games so much.

Harry actually is the IG's "daddy" as well as becoming a new father. Harry really has come full circle and has found a life for himself that has so much meaning to it. Ahhh Harry, you're a good man with a big heart.

It's always good to see Harry in his element around his fellow soldiers. I also like the message about getting your mind right to get your body right.

It was lovely to hear that Princess Margriet of the Netherlands was at the engagement too - it's always nice to see Harry doing events for Invictus as one can tell it's something he's genuinely passionate about.

Ugh! What a minefield Europeans create when they visit NZ. We Kiwi's are pretty laid back and for a close friend or relative we may hug but kisses . . . not so much.

My niece's in-laws are Dutch and from the first day, it was kissing. I can never remember whether it was left, right, left or right, left, right. Then there are those from other kissing countries who do the double and the UK where it mostly seems to be one and I still don't know which side comes first.

I got the impression that he didn't know who she was at first.

yes, mine too. He definitely is not so much in that "royal thing" business.... Harry always seems to be much easier with the "normal" people he meets and seems to pay much more attention to them and not so much to other Royals. I observed this when I saw him in Tonga or when he met Pr. Joachim in Copenhagen, too.
At least he gave Margriet an affectionate kiss when she presented him with these rompers...

He definitely didn't know who Princess Margriet was when he arrived, that seems like he was a little unprepared IMO. I guess he was distracted by the baby being born.

I think he knew who she was. Before engagements like these members of the royal family are very well instructed and prepared for who they´ll meet. But I was very much surprised he didn´t shake hands with her first, as Prss Margriet obviously was his official hostess in The Hague.... Even if he didn´t realise who she was, isn´t it absolutely natural to greet a lady first and then the men after her...?!

Apart from that I observe H. when meeting foreign Royals to be little impressed. Other Royals instantly seem to switch their focus onto their counterparts, obviously for reasons of politeness, while Prince Harry never seems to do that.
