The Invictus Games holds a very special place in Harry, and Meghan's, hearts. The couple chose to go public with their romance at the Toronto Games back in 2017, just two months before announcing their engagement.

Meghan attended the opening ceremony with her mum Doria Ragland and friend Markus Anderson, although she was about 18 seats apart from her boyfriend Harry. A couple of days later, the lovebirds stepped out holding hands as they attended the wheelchair tennis fixture.

Harry founded the Invictus Games in 2014 to aid the rehabilitation of injured or sick military personnel and veterans from across the globe, by giving them the challenge of competing in sporting events similar to the Paralympics. This year, Team UK will compete in nine sports: athletics, archery, wheelchair basketball, cycling, powerlifting, indoor rowing, wheelchair rugby, swimming and sitting volleyball.

Harry surprised Team UK competitors last week with a video call from his home in California where he joked about how much time they'd had to prepare, given the pandemic delay. "You realise that no one, not just you guys, no one's got any excuses for not being fit now," he teased.
