Prince Harry Gets Pumped For Invictus Games By Wearing An All-Orange Look
Prince Harry is getting amped for the Invictus Games, which will start on April 16 in the Netherlands.
"Prince Harry, The Duke of Sussex, is getting ready for the Netherlands with some Dutch lessons. We look forward to giving him a warm welcome in #TheHague. As we all prepare for The Games, our thoughts are with Team Ukraine, as well as their friends & family. #InvictusGames," a message from the company's Twitter page read, which also showed a video of the 37-year-old decked out in an orange shirt, pants, hat and sunglasses.
In the post, there's also a shout-out to the competitors from Ukraine, as their country is currently trying to fend off Russian forces. "As we all prepare for The Games, our thoughts are with Team Ukraine, as well as their friends and family," the Instagram message read. "We know many of them are directly involved in the conflict, and as the news first broke, the Invictus Games Foundation offered support. The team members, competitors, and management all chose to stay."
The dad-of-two created the Invictus Games in 2014, and his mission is to "use the power of sport to inspire recovery, support rehabilitation and generate a wider understanding and respect for wounded, injured and sick Servicemen and women," the website states.

The charity means a lot to Harry, and he and his wife, Meghan Markle, have decided to create a video documentary for Netflix.
"Since the very first Invictus Games back in 2014, we knew that each competitor would contribute in their own exceptional way to a mosaic of resilience, determination, and resolve," he said in 2021. "This series will give communities around the world a window into the moving and uplifting stories of these competitors on their path to the Netherlands next year."
He continued, "As Archewell Productions' first series with Netflix, in partnership with the Invictus Games Foundation. I couldn't be more excited for the journey ahead or prouder of the Invictus community for continuously inspiring global healing, human potential and continued service."
