Prince Harry and Wife Meghan Close Invictus Games 2018. The stadium was packed to capacity for the closing ceremony.
Prince Harry has praised competitors at the Invictus Games for their part in turning the issue of mental health “from a sad story to an inspiring one”. The Duke said admitting you are struggling is the first step to a better future.
Dutch veteran Edwin Vermetten was awarded the Above and Beyond award. It was for his heartwarming, and musical, gesture to comfort Britain’s Paul Guest during a tennis match this week.
The sound of a helicopter caused Guest’s PTSD to resurface, leaving him unable to play on, so Vermetten raced to his side to offer support by singing Let it Go from the movie Frozen.
After accepting the award at the ceremony, Vermetten and Guest had an emotional embrace, holding each other tight, while the audience of 12,000 sang the same song in tribute.
The Duchess of Sussex, expressed thanks for the warm welcome to Australia. Also, for the inclusion into the Invictus family created by her husband Prince Harry four years ago.
Before leaving the stage, the Duke announced that the Netherlands will be hosting the next Invictus Games.
