SYDNEY – The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended on Tuesday a welcome ceremony for the upcoming Invictus Games at Admiralty House in Sydney.
Prince Harry and his wife Meghan were given a formal reception by Australia’s Governor-General Sir Peter Cosgrove, ahead of the Invictus Games welcome ceremony.
Kensington Palace tweeted an image of the royal couple at the event at Admiralty House meeting Richard Harris, an Australian doctor who played an instrumental role in the successful rescue of 12 Thai boys and their football coach, after they were trapped in a cave for almost two weeks earlier this year.
The royal couple are on a three-week tour of Oceania, which will take them to Australia, New Zealand, Tonga and Fiji.
They will help launch the Invictus Games, a multi-sport event created in 2014 by Prince Harry for wounded, injured or sick armed services personnel, which is set to begin on Friday.
Harry and Meghan are also expected to attend the closing ceremony of the Games on Oct. 28.
Earlier on Tuesday, the royal couple were treated to a performance by Aboriginal dance company Bangarra Dance Theatre, and also visited the iconic Sydney Opera House.
