« Ladies and Gentlemen, Welcome to the opening ceremony of the 7th edition of the Invictus Games. It is such an honour to be here tonight celebrating all of you, and supporting The Duke of Sussex in the Invictus Games. This remarkable event, born from his vision 10 years ago celebrates the resilience and determination of our servicemen and women. Indeed, in 2008, after returning from Afghanistan with three severely injured soldiers and the body of a Danish serviceman, the Duke of Sussex realized the urgent need for awareness and support for those affected by visible and invisible injuries. Inspired by the Warrior Games in 2013, where he saw the positive impact of sports on wounded, injured, and sick military personnel, he decided to create an international event. In that span of time, the Games have evolved into an international platform of some of the best athletics and sportsmanship you could ever witness, coupled with a camaraderie and close-knit sense of community which can only be defined as the Invictus Spirit. With that said, and on a very personal note, I just wanted to thank all of you for welcoming me into the Invictus family.

I am truly so grateful to be a part of this with each and every one of you. As William Ernest Henley said in his poem « Invictus » : "In the fell clutch of circumstance I have not winced nor cried aloud. Under the bludgeonings of chance My head is bloody, but unbowed." These words embody the essence of our competitors, who overcame extraordinary challenges most of us will never encounter, yet remain unyielded, displaying extraordinary strength and bravery. Sport is a powerful tool, not just for physical recovery, but for psychological and social healing as well.

Skills and abilities you didn't know you had.

You unlock your potential and performance.
