On Sunday, Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan attended a sailing competition for the second day of the Invictus Games at Sydney Harbor. There they got to meet some of the sailors who came aboard their boat.


One American participant was in high spirits as he hugged Harry passionately. When it was Meghan’s turn for a hug, the prince protectively warned the sailor to not be as rough.

Prince Harry, 34, received an unexpected bear hug from an American sailor at the Invictus Games this weekend. The sailor hugged the prince tightly while patting his and even lifted him off the ground.

Harry’s pregnant wife, Duchess Meghan, 37, found this all amusing as she watched and laughed. She was heard joking:

“Now that’s a hug! Nicely done!”

When it came time for her to meet the excited sailor, Harry was on hand to warn him not to be as rough with his wife. The athlete was heard saying: “No, I know,” before laughing with the couple.


This year marked the first time in the Invictus Games that sailing has been included in the competition. The Invictus Games are a Paralympic-style competition for wounded and recovering service members and veterans from around the world.


It also includes other sports such as wheelchair basketball, sitting volleyball, and indoor rowing. The competition has been held around the world since 2014.


On the same day, Harry met three Australian cyclists at another Invictus event in Sydney. After the race, one athlete asked the Royal to sign his Speedos.


Russell Myers, a Royal correspondent, revealed that Harry jokingly agreed, but only if the cyclist would wear the swimsuit on his head. The athlete obliged but the prince had to politely decline because of Royal protocol that doesn’t allow signatures.


Later, he was gifted with his own pair of Australian Speedos which he jokingly wore over his pants. This tour has revealed how close the Royal couple is.

On Wednesday, they showed off their new form of hand-holding during an outing in Melbourne. Harry was seen holding onto Meghan’s hand while he reached behind his back to hold onto her hand with his other hand.

He was recorded lovingly stroking her thumb just as he did during their wedding ceremony in St. George’s Chapel.
