After seeing the positive effects sport had on the wounded and injured servicemen and women at the 2013 United States Warrior Games, Prince Harry created The Invictus Games with the inaugural event taking place in 2014, in London.

In 2016, the second Games took over Orlando, Florida and the third is now on its way to Sydney.

Prince Harry and the Duchess will open the Games come October 20 to 27. 

Also 100 per cent on the guest list is David Beckham who announced on Instagram that he’d be attending the Games as an Ambassador.

“I’ve been lucky enough to meet and work with many serving, veteran and wounded British armed forces personnel over the years and I’ve been humbled by the courage, resilience and spirit shown by each and every one of them.

“So, I’m incredibly proud to announce I will be an Ambassador for this year’s Invictus Games in Sydney. The entire Invictus Games team, led by the Duke of Sussex, has achieved remarkable things in such a short space of time, using sport as a powerful force to rehabilitate and unite and I can’t wait to be part of the energy and the excellence of the Games this year.”
