Prince Harry makes controversial comments about royal family at Invictus Games

Prince Harry made a controversial comment about the royal family during a message the closing message of the Invictus Games on Saturday.

Harry's words pushed back on the royal family not allowing him to wear his military uniform during Queen Elizabeth II's funeral last year or the May coronation of King Charles III.

The remarks

“A week ago I stood here and told you about the significance of being able to wear your nation’s flag again,” said the Duke of Sussex. “So many of you have told me that hit you right here. For many of you the uniform you’ve been wearing this past week will give you a new story to tell.”

“And for others, it may give your old uniform new meaning,” continued the estranged royal. “But I’m here to remind you that after all of this, you don’t need to rely on a uniform, nor should you feel lost without one. Because everything you need is already within you.”

Connecting with Germans

"Prince Harry was tearful during his five-minute speech marking the end of the 2023 Invictus Games in Dusseldorf, Germany," the Royal Family Channel noted.

"In the speech, Harry showed himself to be quite the linguist, as he impressed crowds with his fluent German!" it added.

An emotional experience

"The Prince was visibly emotional as he continued, looking at James in the crowd. "Yesterday I met with Master Corporal James Gendron from the Canadian team in the Invictus 2025 tent," he told the arena, according to Hello Magazine.

"While we were chatting, I noticed bagpipes lying on the floor in the far corner. Some of you may know what bagpipes mean to me, so I couldn’t help but hope they’d be played!" it continued.

The Invictus Games is a Paralympic-like event for injured servicemen and servicewomen.

The event was founded by Prince Harry who launched the Games in 2014 after watching the Warrior Games in 2013.

The emotional speech showed a unique side of the prince in a setting that included some controversy as well as much support for wounded military personnel.
