It was recently revealed that the Duke and Duchess will be joined by another very popular royal on their tour – Crown Prince Frederik. The Danish royal will attend the Invictus Games, which Harry is patron of. David Beckham will also be showing his support as a newly appointed ambassador for the Games.
Writing on Instagram in August, David revealed: "I've been lucky enough to meet and work with many serving, veteran and wounded British armed forces personnel over the years and I've been humbled by the courage, resilience and spirit shown by each and every one of them. So, I'm incredibly proud to announce I will be an Ambassador for this year's Invictus Games in Sydney. The entire Invictus Games team, led by the Duke of Sussex, has achieved remarkable things in such a short space of time, using sport as a powerful force to rehabilitate and unite and I can't wait to be part of the energy and the excellence of the Games this year."
