This Saturday, April 16, during the opening ceremony of the Invictus Games, Harry spoke and revealed some family anecdotes. The opportunity for him to talk about his son, Archie, and his very promising future … As an astronaut or a helicopter pilot.
The most famous royal couple, or ex-royal couple, made a rare appearance more than noticed during the Invictus Games, which began this Saturday, April 16.
At the opening ceremony, Meghan and Harry both spoke and did not fail to move the assembly. Meghan, who spoke first, called her husband on stage after having made a beautiful declaration of love. It is with tears in his eyes that Prince Harry joined her, more in love than ever. The young father also gave himself to the audience of the Invictus Games by talking about his family life, and especially the dreams of his eldest son, Archie.
“Nothing would make his mother and me prouder”
It was with humor and kindness that the prince revealed the biggest dreams of little Archie, who will soon celebrate his 3rd birthday: “When I talk to my son Archie about what he wants to be when he grows up, some days he’s an astronaut, other days he’s a pilot, a helicopter pilot obviously. Or Kwazii from the Octonauts. If you’re laughing, you’ve seen it,” Prince Harry expressed himself, before continuing, “But what I remind him is that no matter what you want to be when you grow up, it’s your character that matters most, and nothing would make his mother and I prouder than to see him have the character of what we see before us today.”
A beautiful message that takes us further into the intimacy of the couple, with a little insight into the love-filled upbringing they give their children. A message of tolerance, above all, of ambition and understanding.
During their two respective speeches, Meghan and Harry opened up in a way they rarely do, and moved the Invictus Games audience like rarely. As the founder of these games, Prince Harry invests a lot of his time at each edition to meet the participants and exchange with them. A value worthy of the royal family, which has probably not left him.
