One by one each of the winning veterans’ names are announced and they are given a medal as Harry and Meghan lean in to embrace and congratulate them.
As athletes at the Invictus Games in Germany were celebrated, it was double celebration for the Prince who turned 39 yesterday.
The crowds at the packed out stadium serenaded the prince with renditions of ‘Happy Birthday’ and inundated him with gifts – good wishes were notably absent from the monarchy’s official social media accounts.
The palace’s official social media accounts instead spent all day posting about King Charles, Prince William, Princess Kate, and Sophie, Duchess of Edinburgh – without mentioning Prince Harry once.
But its unlikely Harry had time to notice with the couple’s packed schedule of engagements and three outfit changes for Meghan.
Meghan’s first look of the day was a muted outfit, as she sported a matching cream playsuit from Zara and a Celine blazer.
Bringing a touch of glitz to the outing, the royal styled her hair in loose waves and sported a glamorous make-up look while opting for fashionable black sandals.
She then opted to change into a long grey dress especially for the Team Canada Reception at the Hilton Hotel.
