Tonight, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended the first of a two game series of the Major League Baseball #LondonSeries, in support of @WeAreInvictusGames. Tonight’s highly anticipated game between the #Yankees and #RedSox took place at London stadium, Olympic Park. The @WeAreInvictusGames, of which His Royal Highness is Founding Patron, has been selected as charity partner for the @MLB 2019 series. The Invictus Games Foundation is the international charity that oversees the development of the Invictus Games, an international adaptive multi-sport event in which wounded, injured or sick armed service personnel and veterans participate. It celebrates the power of sport in recovery and how it can help, physically or psychologically, those suffering from injuries or illness. The word ‘invictus’ means ‘unconquered’ - it embodies the fighting spirit of the competitors. As part of the partnership, the Invictus Games Foundation have a team participating in London’s #Softball60, the social softball series built for the city and targeted to introduce the sport to new audiences and demonstrate that it is an inclusive sport. On this #ArmedForcesDay, tonight’s event was also a chance for Their Royal Highnesses to shine a light on the men and women here in the UK and around the world who have sacrificed so much for their country.

This evening, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended #TheLionKing European premiere in London at the Odeon Theatre. In celebration of the film’s release, The Walt Disney Company announced #ProtectThePride, a global conservation campaign to support efforts protecting the rapidly diminishing lion population across Africa. As a part of their commitment to this cause, Disney also made a donation to The Duke of Sussex’s upcoming environment & community initiative which will be formally announced this autumn. The Duke and Duchess are committed to advancing conservation efforts across Africa and around the world, and working with communities to ensure a sustainable future for the planet. This evening Their Royal Highnesses had the pleasure of meeting the cast and creative team behind the film, as well as supporters of @africanparksnetwork, of which The Duke is President.

Although there were speculations that a rift might have led to the separation and setting up of a new charity by Prince Harry and Meghan in the first place, a royal source disclosed to The Sun otherwise.

"The new name is all about Harry and Meghan building their brand and doing it their way," the source said. 

The new name comes about a month after the palace made an official announcement that Prince Harry and Meghan were leaving the royal charity foundation. 

Headed by Natalie Campbell, the charity's first task is lion protection in Africa. 

ROYAL FANS FIND THE NAME CHIPPY 

Although reports have revealed that the new charity is a welcomed development among the royals, the name, on the other hand, is a bit hilarious and has been mocked by insiders. 

They compared it to a type of potato called "Royal Jersey potato". One insider while speaking to The Sun disclosed that they expected something more traditional.

Prior to the 'Royal Sussex' by Harry and Meghan, the pair were a part of the Royal Foundation established by the brothers in 2009. Kate became a member two years later when she got married to William, and Meghan when she got married to Harry in 2018.

The new charity is one in a series of moves by Meghan and Harry to separate themselves and apparently create their brand as revealed by an insider. They also moved away from Kensington where Prince William and Kate Middleton live with their children to Frogmore Cottage in Windsor Castle.
