NEW details on Meghan Markle’s key role in Prince Harry’s Invictus Games have been revealed – the couple are set for their first official engagement together in months.
The Duke and Duchess will take the stage at Harry’s Invictus Games in Düsseldorf in September. The Telegraph reports.
Meghan, 42, will reportedly be hosting the Lifestories Scene section at the event’s closing ceremony.
She will make a “poignant” contribution, highlighting the courage and resilience of the injured soldiers.
And Harry, 38, will give a farewell speech at the graduation ceremony on September 16.
The last time the couple attended a public event, their rep claimed they were involved in a “near-disastrous car chase” that they say lasted for more than two hours.
They claimed Harry and Meghan’s car was the target of a “relentless pursuit” by paparazzi after an awards ceremony in New York.
However, police officers and a taxi driver criticized the claims as “exaggerated”.
New York Post It was previously reported that the couple will travel to Germany for the Games, which Harry created in 2014 to give former servicemen a chance to compete in an international multisport event.
The games begin on September 9 – one day after the first anniversary of the Queen’s death.
This comes after Harry made an emotional statement about “family” in the trailer for his first Netflix series without Meghan.
The Duke of Sussex’s new documentary Heart of Invictus will be available on the streaming service from August 30.
It covers injured and ill military veterans competing in Harry’s Paralympic Invictus Games.
The trailer for the show begins with a speech Harry gave at the competition’s opening ceremony in the Netherlands last year.
He said, “If your goal was to make your country proud, you’ve made it.”
“If your goal was to make your family happy, you have achieved it.
“They are substantial, resilient and strong people – they have the heart of Invictus.”
The show airs nearly three years after Harry and Meghan signed a multi-million dollar deal with Netflix estimated to be worth £88million.
Her biggest hit to date has been a documentary criticizing her treatment by the royal family.
Harry’s new series does not appear to feature Meghan, who he has worked with on previous Netflix projects.
He created the Invictus Games 2014, with the next competition scheduled for this September in Dusseldorf, Germany.
In a video message last week, Harry said: “Can’t wait to see you all and have the whole community back together. It’s been too long.”
“You are all at different stages of your healing journey. We all are and always will be.”
“But I can assure you that this experience you are going to have will hopefully change your life and you will surely come out of it a better person.”
“Thank you for your service. Thank you for your dedication and determination to get to this point.”
“We’re going to have a lot of fun. It’s going to be the best games of all time – the best games yet.”
21 countries including Israel, Colombia and Nigeria will take part in the tournament next month.
Rita Ora will sing at the graduation ceremony on September 16th.
