Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle witnessed the beginning of the Invictus Games in the Netherlands, People Magazine reported on Sunday.

The organizing of the lately-kicked off edition of the games was supposed to be held in 2020, but it was delayed due to the pandemic.

The Sussexes attended the special reception of athletes on Friday, before watching Jaguar Land Rover Driving Challenge on Saturday ahead of the opening ceremony.

It was reported early this week that the Dutch Royal Family, King Willem-Alexander and Princess Margriet will not receive the Sussexes, Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle.

The spokesperson of the Dutch Royals said: “King Willem-Alexander and Princess Margriet will attend the Invictus Games. The Princess will be present at the opening ceremony on April 16th, the King at the closing ceremony on April 22nd.”

Although Prince Harry is the patron of the Games, he will not have an audience with the Dutch Royalties, and will not be offered a room in the Dutch Royal Palace.

The main reason for that is the Sussexes surrendering their Royal titles, and duties, so they will not be given any attention as Royalties, however, they will be given the treatment of VIP guests.

In addition, they will be offered several security guards for protecting them, however, they should not be armed men.
