The least we can say is that the opening ceremony of the Invictus Games was rich in emotions. This sports competition reserved for British soldiers and war veterans who are injured or have a disability is inspired by the Paralympic Games, and was, as usual, inaugurated by the royal couple Meghan and Harry. And the latter was the source of a nice surprise by going on stage to pay tribute to her “incredible husband” before giving him a languorous kiss in public.
This scene, which touched the prince to the highest point, was followed and commented on by many Britons, who are totally fans of the royal couple. Meghan Markle and Harry arrived in The Hague hand in hand. The prince was dressed in an elegant gray suit with an open-necked shirt, while his wife had dark trousers and a white bodysuit. But it was above all one of her jewels that dazzled the crowd.

Meghan Markle paid tribute to Prince Harry, her “incredible husband”
The jewel in question? A Cartier necklace at 12,800 pounds, the equivalent of 15,000 euros. Always very classy, the member of the royal family delivered a superb speech. “Good evening everyone. We are very grateful to the Netherlands for welcoming us and hosting the Invictus Games. For each team, my husband and I recognize that it has taken a long time to get here, both in terms of physical and emotional, especially for the Ukraine team, which we all support”.
“One thing I’m sure of is that every moment it takes to get here will be worth it. Because it’s here at the Invictus Games that we honor your years of service on the court and your continued service to your country, your family and your community off the pitch”. You will have understood: it was a new great moment in public for the Duchess of Sussex.
