Prince Harry reflects on service members' dedication to games
Prince Harry is known to champion the Invictus Games, which he founded back in 2014 and continues his patronage with today. During the video call, Harry told the former service members that the sporting event for wounded and disabled veterans "never would've been created had I not been inspired by every single one of you."
The Duke of Sussex called the Warrior Games and Invictus Games "the ultimate reminder of service both at home and overseas" due to the rigorous challenges competitors endure mentally and physically. He also reflected on their growth, commenting on how it makes him "incredibly happy" to watch their journeys.
"Thank you for inspiring us. Thank you for showing us the way," Harry finished, saying that he's "incredibly proud" to see the strength of the community. Jill Biden, who attended the first Invictus Games, also acknowledged how Harry is "lifting up service members from around the globe" with his efforts through the Games.
