Here we come Düsseldorf! The new home for the 2022 and sixth Invictus Games.

The Invictus Games, for injured ex-servicemen, will be going ahead in two years’ time in Dusseldorf, Germany.

Prince Harry set up the Invictus Games as an “international adaptive multi-sport event” for wounded, injured and sick former armed services personnel and veterans and it has been held in several countries, with hundreds taking part.

It’s very close to his heart.

He also said: “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 get right behind these Games and that every single competitor can expect a warm welcome and an amazing atmosphere.”

Later today, Prince Harry will make first public appearance since the shocking announcement that he and wife Meghan would be stepping down as senior Royals.

Earlier this week, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex returned to visit the women of The Hubb Community Kitchen and “Together, Our Community Cookbook.” These women came together in the wake of the Grenfell tragedy to cook meals for their families and neighbours who had been displaced from the fire. With funds from the successful cookbook, they have now been able to share their spirit of community with so many more. The Hubb continues to work with local organisations to build hope, bring comfort and provide not simply a warm meal, but with it, a sense of togetherness. The Duke and Duchess were so happy to reconnect with the women and hear about the projects they continue to develop to help those in their community and beyond. Image © SussexRoyal
