Harry and Meghan took to the stage separately and delivered heart touching speeches during the closing ceremony, reported E! Online.
Meghan looked beautiful in a green Antonio Berardi tuxedo dress.”Good evening everyone! It is such an honor to be here tonight celebrating all of you and supporting my husband in the Invictus Games, which he founded four years ago,” she said while talking to the crowd.
“In that short span of time, the Games have evolved into an international platform of some of the best athletics and sportsmanship you could ever witness, coupled with the comradery and close net sense of community, which can only be defined as the Invictus spirit. With that said, and on a very personal note, I just wanted to thank all of you for welcoming me into the Invictus family. I am truly so grateful to be a part of this with each and every one of you,” Meghan further added.
Prince Harry, on the other hand, began his speech by saying “thank you” to those who helped in making these Games successful.
“And to the competitors goes the biggest thanks of all, you have once again left us humbled and inspired by your example, by your determination, by your service, and by your sense of humour,” he further said.
The couple is currently on their first royal tour of Australia and South Pacific that began on October 16. The tour will end on October 31 with their visit to New Zealand. The two are also expecting their first child in 2019.
