Prince Harry was greeted with a “Happy Birthday” song at the Invictus Games on Friday as he and Meghan Markle attended a sitting volleyball match.
Harry clearly appreciated the warm welcome on his 38th birthday, giving a thumbs up as Meghan leaned into him. The couple have been animatedly watching various contests at the competition for wounded service members and veterans in Düsseldorf, Germany.
That morning, Invictus Games organizers also sent online birthday wishes to Harry with a fun picture, praising his efforts. Harry’s celebrations started Thursday evening when he and Meghan went to a local restaurant with staff, enjoying traditional German fare, per the eatery.
Throughout the noisy, exciting week, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been meeting with as many competitors as possible. One veteran said Harry jokingly shook his beard, acting like “one of the guys.” He makes people feel they’ve known him forever.
On Wednesday, Harry embraced a team member while Meghan gave out a medal. They also watched wheelchair basketball and joined a group wave.
The couple has spent time with Team Nigeria, which Meghan has been rooting for since discovering her Nigerian ancestry last year.
The Düsseldorf Games are the sixth Invictus event, following the couple’s first appearance together at the 2017 Toronto version.
The athletic competition for wounded veterans was founded by Harry in 2014. The birthday serenade shows the warmth he and Meghan have received.
