Exciting news for Prince Harry following family Christmas

2022 has plenty on the horizon for the Sussexes

The Duke of Sussex will no doubt be excited to hear that the Invictus Games The Hague is just 100 days away. The event's official social media accounts shared a countdown video on Thursday, showing a number of competitors preparing for the tournament.

The competition will take place from 16 to 22 April at the Zuiderpark in The Hague. Prince Harry visited the venue in The Netherlands just days after the birth of his first child, Archie, in May 2019.

The Duke, who now lives in the US with wife Meghan and their two children, Archie and Lilibet, founded the Invictus Games in 2014 - an international adaptive multi-sport event in which wounded, injured or sick armed services personnel and veterans participate.
