After visiting Queen Elizabeth in the UK, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry arrived in the Netherlands for the Invictus Games. Their first event on Friday was the warm welcome to the athletes and their families in The Hague – and the Duchess of Sussex’s team did not disappoint.
This is Markle’s first appearance in Europe since she and Harry made their last public engagement as members of the royal family in March 2020, so there will be no out of fashion. She wore a gorgeous white Valentino suit and paired a monochromatic look with an Italian handbag and Aquazzura shoes. The mother of two seemed relieved and happy to have her husband on such a special day after being late due to the pandemic. Harry kept his regular attire in a black suit with a white button-down shirt – allowing his wife’s gorgeous outfit to make a big statement.
The Invictus Games, which begin April 16 and run through April 22, give military veterans with injuries or illnesses the opportunity to compete at a high level in sports such as sit-down volleyball, wheelchair basketball, weightlifting and swimming. The sporting event holds a close place in the duo’s hearts as they made their debut as a married couple at the 2017 Toronto Canadian Games.
The Duchess of Sussex is only expected to attend the Invictus Games this weekend Harper’s Bazaar, Meanwhile, Harry plans to be there all week. He supports all athletes, but provided a little extra support for the Great Britain team during the Zoom call. He encouraged him, “For a lot of you, once you get to that point, you win the gold.” “The fact that you’re now sitting there with that belt and being able to wear a Union Jack again means so much to all of you.”
It’s great to see the games again after a break – and great to see Meghan and Harry do something they love.
