Prince Harry founded the Invictus games in 2014 for injured, injured or ill armed service personnel. Harry’s statement about the Invictus Games is the first time the duke has broken his silence since royalty royalty held crisis talks at the Queen’s Sandringham estate.

In an unusual personal statement, the 93-year-old Queen said there would be a “transition period” and emphasized that these were “complex matters.”
The head of state insisted that she “would have preferred them to remain members of the royal family who work full time,” but “respect and understand her desire.”
Harry, on his return to royal duties, said he was “honored” that Germany hosted the Invictus Games in two years.
The Duke of Sussex said: “I am honored that Germany will take the history of Invictus further, with the sixth Invictus game going to Düsseldorf in 2022.
“Germany has been a key part of the Invictus Games family since the beginning in 2014 and I know they will be exemplary hosts to collect the mantle and show what the sport continues to do for these inspiring men and women in their recovery.
“I hope everyone in Germany is ready for what will be an incredible week of sport!
“I have no doubt that the German public will be behind these Games and that each competitor can expect a warm welcome and an incredible atmosphere.”
Before the games in Düsseldorf in 2022, the fifth race of the event will take place this summer in The Hague.
The event with more than 500 competitors will take place in the Netherlands from May 9 to 16 and you will see the number of participating nations expanding to 20.
The Duke added: “And as we look towards the next Invictus Games The Hague 2020, I am delighted that two new nations, Belgium and the Republic of Korea, participate for the first time, which will increase the number of nations in the Invictus family to 20 in 2020 “.
The Invictus Games have a special place in the heart of Prince Harry who served in the Armed Forces for 10 years.
