The Duchess of Sussex was seen holding her husband’s hand as the couple made a rare appearance in Europe together. For the Duchess, her arrival at the opening of the games was her first visit to Europe in two years. With the relationship between the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and some members of the Royal Family reportedly fractured the couple shared a heartfelt moment as the games begin.

Perched on the front row of seats with officials and dignitaries, Prince Harry appeared solemn as he bowed his head, with Meghan tenderly holding his hand.

Prince Harry met with his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II prior to coming to the games.

Having visited the Queen at Windsor, Harry and Meghan did not meet up with his brother Prince William who is away with his wife and children on a skiing holiday.

The footage of the moment was published by the US Invictus team outside the US embassy in The Hague.

The games have been a key legacy of Prince Harry who founded the project, having witnessed a similar concept in the US.

Having served in the military himself, the games bring together veterans from around the world to compete in games designed for injured personnel.

The event has been compared to the Paralympics.

First held in 2014 in London, the second Invictus Games held in Toronto saw the couple appear together for the first time.
