The Duke of Sussex has joked with one of his instructors from Sandhurst, telling her that she used to shout at him “so much”. Harry surprised Invictus Games Team UK competitors with a video call as members gathered for a final training camp before the event takes place in the Netherlands later this month. The duke founded the games to aid the rehabilitation of injured or sick military personnel and veterans from across the globe, by giving them the challenge of competing in sporting events similar to the Paralympics.

The royal continued: “I needed it. Yeah, cool. That’s also fair enough.”

After being delayed by the pandemic, the next staging of the international competition will take place in The Hague from April 16 to 22.

The room erupted in laughter when Harry commented on the fact the competitors had had two years to prepare for the games and that therefore fitness should not be an issue.

“You realise that no-one, not just you guys, no-one’s got any excuses for not being fit now,” he joked.

Ms Wales, 44, from Newcastle, is taking part in five events – rowing, cycling, archery, powerlifting and athletics.

She broke her back in a training accident 11 years ago and was medically discharged.

Giving a team talk to the competitors, Harry said: “For a lot of you, you’ve already, as far as I’m concerned, you’ve already won gold by just getting to this point.

“The fact that you are sitting there now wearing that strip and you are able to wear the Union Jack on your arm again, that means so much to every single one of you.”

Team UK captain Rachel Williamson, a 33-year-old RAF veteran from Rutland, Leicestershire, told Harry on the call, which took place on Saturday: “It’s been a very long journey to get here, but what an amazing team to do it with.

“We’ve came through ups and downs with the pandemic, and I know as soon as we all get there it will be just amazing to just look back at the team and see how far we’ve actually came. It will be really special.”

Afterwards, she said: “The call was such a surprise but it was amazing to see Prince Harry again.

“I absolutely loved it, it was like speaking to another member of the Invictus family.

“He just says the right stuff. The main thing he said was ‘yes you lost your uniform but now you get to wear this brand new uniform again’ and that hits all of us so deep.

“We know that he understands where we’re coming from and where we’ve been.”
