Prince Harry ensured that his pregnant wife the Duchess of Sussex was well looked after on Sunday as the royal couple braved the seas to watch the sailing final at the Invictus Games. Harry was seen holding onto Meghan's hand as they climbed onto the boat to watch the game – which saw host country Australia crowned the winners.

This was Meghan's second public engagement of the day on Sunday. The Duchess opted to skip the very first engagement of the day, seeing Harry attend the road cycling race alone. Meghan had been told to take it easy and rest after a late night at the Invictus Games opening ceremony the day before.

Throughout the sailing race, the pair were both in great spirits throughout the game and were laughing and smiling as they chatted to one lucky couple who had been placed on a boat with them; Carrie and Bill Novack, from Illinois, whose son Ryan, 26, suffered a spinal cord injury in 2016.

Meghan, as ever, put a fashionable spin on her outfit, teaming her Invictus Games tracksuit with a pair of statement KREWE sunglasses and trainers from Tretorn. For the sporty outing, the Duchess scraped her hair back in her signature messy bun and opted for a natural makeup look.

Prince Harry and Meghan were joined on their boat by couple Carrie and Bill Novack, whose son Ryan, 26, worked as a first lieutenant in the US air force before suffering from a spinal injury in 2016. The couple had been told just a few days before that two VIP guests would be joining them.
