• The Invictus Games begin this weekend
  • Prince Harry will be there in the Netherlands
  • He's bringing an unexpected royal family member

It's a big week for Prince Harry. The royal is heading to The Hague, Netherlands, for the Invictus Games, which kick off on Saturday, April 16. But Prince Harry won't be alone for the trip: he'll have his wife Duchess Meghan by his side.

Invictus Games: Prince Harry is bringing... Meghan

It looked like Prince Harry would attend the Invictus Games solo, but Duchess Meghan is now an official guest. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex's spokesperson confirmed this to Harper's Bazaar.

The Invictus Games run from April 16 to 22, and Meghan will be there apparently for at least a few days. It's unclear if she'll have a big role in the festivities alongside her husband. Prince Harry is the founder of the Invictus Games.

Also interesting:

This year's event is actually the "2020" Invictus Games, which were postponed multiple times due to the pandemic. But the celebrated multi-sport event for wounded, injured, and sick servicemen and women finally goes ahead this weekend.

Rare trip for Meghan and Harry

The trip to the Netherlands will be Meghan and Prince Harry's first in some time.

The two, who are still the Duke and Duchess of Sussex today, haven't left the United States as a couple since moving to California in 2020. Their last major trip was a visit to New York last year.

Expect lots from Harry and Meghan in the Netherlands for this year's Invictus Games. The games begin on Saturday.
