Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan arrived at the final day of the Invictus Games in Sydney, Australia to thunderous applause. The royals were among fans at Sydney’s Olympic Park packing the stadium to watch the games, which have drawn roughly 500 athletes from 18 nations.
As they had done throughout the Invictus Games, Harry and Meghan cheered on teams while seated in the crowd. Yesterday was the Wheelchair Basketball finals at the Invictus Games. It was the 12th day of their South Pacific tour.
During the match the royal couple dressed casually, with the duchess donning a burgundy wrap blouse, black jeans and black heels and the duke decked out in his Invictus Games polo, light-colored pants and lace-up shoes.
After the match, Harry and Meghan congratulated teams from The Netherlands and the United States and helped honor the winners. Meghan assisted in passing out gold medals to the American team, which beat the Netherlands team 29 to 17.
Last night, the royals attended the Invictus Games closing ceremony at Qudos Bank Arena in Sydney, and glammed it up.
Meghan, who wore an olive green Antonio Berardi dress, gave a speech during the closing ceremony. She also wore nude heels and her hair in a low bun, according to the USA Today. Harry, who also gave a speech, sported a grey suit and left the jacket open.
The Invictus Games, founded by Harry, is an international paralympic-styled sporting event for military personnel wounded in action. David Beckham, former England soccer captain, is an Invictus ambassador. Beckham also attended the basketball match.
Today, the royal couple will head to New Zealand, where they are expected to be greeted by Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern.
The tour of Commonwealth countries has seen the royal couple meet drought-stricken Australian farmers, visit the world famous Bondi Beach and spend time in the Pacific nations of Fiji and Tonga, according to The New York Times.
