Meghan Markle to join Prince Harry at Invictus Games in Hague as Netflix to follow couple

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will reportedly be followed by a Netflix documentary crew throughout the Games, which start next Saturday. A source told the Mirror: “Meghan is excited to travel with Harry for the event, which is certainly close to his heart.”

Meghan could join Harry on stage at the opening ceremony as insiders promised “a big surprise to launch the event”.

The couple previously announced a Netflix show about the Games, titled Heart of Invictus.

It comes after Harry faced criticism for missing Prince Philip’s memorial service at Westminster Abbey last week.

The Duke did not travel to the UK from the US for the event at Westminster Abbey.

It comes as he is embroiled in a legal row with the Home Office over police protection for his family while in Britain.

But Ken Wharfe, a former royal protection officer, said: “I’m baffled about why Harry thinks he would be safer in the Netherlands than the UK.

“He would have travelled to his grandfather’s memorial service with his brother or father and received protection from the Met.

“It’s not like he would have been turning up at Westminster Abbey on a bike.

“It is more of a risk to go to Holland to support a charity with a military link than coming to London last week.”

The Sussexes are living in California after quitting royal duties in March 2020.

Harry was inspired to found his Invictus Games after attending the Warrior Games in Colorado in 2013 and seeing how the challenge of competitive sports aided the recovery of injured members of the American forces.

He went on to stage the inaugural games in London’s Olympic Park in 2014, followed by Orlando in 2016, Toronto in 2017 and Sydney in 2018.

The Invictus Games will take place in The Hague from April 16-22.
