Prince Harry Pays Tribute to Son Archie in ‘I AM DADDY’ Jacket at an Invictus Games Event

Prince Harry, 32, attended the Invictus games event wearing a jacket with “INVICTUS FAMILY DADDY” written on it, shortly after his son’s birth.

Prince Harry is the latest royal to become a father, and he loves every bit of it! During his trip to the Netherlands on Thursday, the proud dad showed off his new title, wearing a “daddy” jacket to the Invictus Games 2020.

The British royal sported a jacket with embroidery on the upper left part saying “INVICTUS FAMILY DADDY,” a tribute to his newborn son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor. He later posed wearing a black sports top which spelled out “I am Daddy” in front.

AN ADVOCATE FOR THE INVICTUS GAMES

Over the last five years, Harry has been an advocate for the Invictus games which took place at the Sportcampus Zuiderpark in the Hague this year.

He participated in the bicycle ride around the park and in the archery session in the sports hall shortly after. Harry then proceeded to watch the wheelchair basketball training to show support for wounded servicemen and women.

“Our mental fitness is the key, because without it we fail to operate efficiently; but with it your physical performance and potential are exponentially improved and we have witnessed this over and over again,” read the Sussex royal’s Instagram account.
