Prince Harry and Meghan share a kiss at the Invictus Games opening ceremony

Two days after meeting the Queen and Prince Charles in Windsor, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex focused on family as they spoke at the opening ceremony of the Invictus Games.

In his private speech, Harry spoke about his dreams for his two-year-old son and the inspiration he drew from the injury veterans competing in the events he created.

“To be a role model, or role model, that each of you needs strength and that takes courage,” he said.

“When I talk to my son Archie about what he wants to be when he grows up, some days an astronaut, other days a pilot – a helicopter pilot, of course. Or Kwazii from the Octonauts – if you’re laughing then you’ve seen it.

“But what I reminded her of is, no matter what you want to be when you grow up, it’s your character that matters most, and nothing makes mom and I prouder than seeing him have the character we see before us. today.”

Harry paid tribute to the Ukraine team at the Olympics as did Meghan, who introduced her “amazing husband” as “founder of the Invictus game and father of our two young children, Archie and Lilibet”.

“I couldn’t love and respect him more, and I know you all feel the same way,” he said.

The ceremony began with the arrival of 17 national teams, who performed music from the Royal Dutch Military Band.

No one has received a warmer welcome than Team Ukraine.

Previously, Harry, 37, and Meghan, 40, took part in the Land Rover Driving Challenge, where they drove two mini Land Rovers driven by children.

Harry clenched his fists as Scarlett Vroegop, the four-year-old daughter of a Dutch competitor, carried him on the court’s lap. Meghan waved as she was pushed by four-year-old Mya Poirot, the daughter of a French competitor.
