Prince Harry is celebrating a milestone. The Duke of Sussex got candid about the Invictus Games completing five noteworthy years and also his not-so-great moments in the last few years. In a video posted to their Royal Instagram page, Prince Harry opened up about the anxiousness that came with hosting the very first Paralympics-style event in London. Harry started the Invictus Games back in 2014 to bring together wounded, injured or sick armed services personnel and their associated veterans to take part in multiple sports. 

Recalling his first Invictus Games, Harry shared that he was nervous about everything from the weather cooperating for the outdoor ceremony to whether people would actually come and about his speech as well. Speaking about his first ever speech, Harry said, "On the night, we had the lecture or podium right in front of all the competitors so I could just see all their faces, and they started chanting. I was so nervous. I was shaking." 

“I knew I had a certain window to be able to get my words out, and we were also running behind. So I rushed it. It was probably one of the worst speeches I’ve ever given,” he revealed and laughed it off. The games continue to inspire differently abled people and the initiative has become a great bonding exercise over the years.

Harry and Meghan in few days will leave for Africa and also take their son baby Archie along. It will be their first official tour as a family and Prince Harry is quite excited about the same.
