The focus of their royal tour is on the recovery and rehabilitation of servicemen and women through Prince Harry’s 2018 Invictus Games in Sydney. It is on youth leadership, environmental and conservation efforts. This will officially be their first appearance as a married couple overseas—a major tour together after a two-day visit to Ireland earlier in July this year.
The Invictus Games opening ceremony is slated to be held on October 20. This sporting event was first launched in 2014 at London by Prince Harry. It witnesses 500 wounded and paralysed defence force veterans from 18 nations competing in 11 adaptive sports. The media reports further revealed that the Duke and Duchess will be joined by Danish Royals; Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Prince Mary of Denmark.
