Meghan Markle, Prince Harry Match at the first Invictus Games event

adminOctober 20, 2018




The 2018 Invictus Games are officially underway, and what better way to celebrate than with matching shirts?

After their stay at Anzac Memorial, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle began the Paralympic-style competition for the injured and service members in recovery and veterans with the Jaguar Land Rover Driving Challenge on Saturday (local time), but not before a quick team change.

Meghan, 37, changed from her previous formal outfit to a more casual and chic look. She opted for a pair of black denim jeans from Mother Denim and a black Invictus Games shirt with a white Altuzarra Studio Acacia blazer at the top.

To finish the look, Meghan added a pair of trendy yellow Illesteva sunglasses.

Meanwhile, Harry, 34, who wore his military uniform at the Anzac Memorial, also kept things informal by combining his wife with a black Invictus Games shirt, the same one he used when climbing the Sydney Harbor Bridge yesterday, and gray pants, with its own pair of shadows.

The royal couple, who announced on Monday that they are expecting their first child, arrived on Cockatoo Island on an elegant white yacht with Sydney harbor as a backdrop.

Once they arrived on the island, the couple climbed into an SUV, where they were taken to the race track. While they were there, Meghan and Harry were introduced to various volunteers and athletes. Soon after, the Jaguar Land Rover began to swerve through the cones.

Meghan's best friend, Jessica Mulroney, joined the couple to start the day and shared a picture of the banner of the game side of the Game in her Instagram Stories. The photo has already been deleted.

Harry and Meghan made their official public debut as a couple at the Invictus Games last year in Toronto. They arrived memorably hand in hand at the event and attended a day of competitions, supporting the competitors and greeting the supporters.

To officially inaugurate the 2018 edition of the Games, Prince Harry, 34, climbed the Sydney Harbor Bridge on Friday (local time) along with Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison.

Harry joined the climb of more than 1,000 volunteers and athletes of Invictus Games, but his wife remained firmly planted on the ground.

The royal couple, accompanied by the governor of New South Wales, David Hurley, began his fifth day of the tour at the official opening of the Anzac Memorial. Anzac Day commemorates the first major battle involving the forces of Australia and New Zealand during the First World War.

While they were there, Meghan and Harry received a tour of the new education and interpretation facilities and the Hall of Silence where the sculpture "Sacrifice" is located. The official opening was also attended by the Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison and the New South Wales Premier, Gladys Berejiklian.

The ceremony began with an opening speech and a musical procession before the royal couple entered and sat in the front row of the crowd.

Together, Meghan and Harry brought a wreath of flowers to the memorial stairs and hung it on a stand, before the prince saluted in honor of the fallen veterans.

During the ceremony, the aircraft of the 76th quadrant in New Castle, which offers training courses for fighter pilots, flew overhead.

The choir at the memorial also sang "I promise my country," Princess Diana's favorite anthem in her school days, sung at both her wedding in 1981 and her funeral in 1997.

The next step for the royal couple is a welcome reception, offered by the Prime Minister of New South Wales, before concluding his fifth day at the opening ceremony of the Invictus Games in the courtyard of the Sydney Opera House.
