“The couple recognise the significance of the First Nations communities welcoming the Invictus Games onto their sacred land and are thankful for the warmth and hospitality,” said the statement.

Meghan donned the $598 Shop Doen “Kensington” Coat in Black with gold buttons, matching it with black Anine Bing pants and a Christian Dior top.

Harry, 39, wore a navy jumper, black peacoat, and black jeans with a white shirt.

After a ten-minute gondola ride from Whistler village, the former working royals arrived on the snowy mountain. They grinned and held each other close as camp participants and organizers welcomed them.

Subsequently, they encountered rivals at multiple stations, encompassing an adaptive sit-ski where he participated in an individual run. He asked, “Do I need to sign a waiver?” His wife laughed heartily and then took a picture of Harry.
