cut from the same cloth as his mother, so charismatic and such a people person. Whatever happens down the line with William and the monarchy Harry at this point is an asset. I imagine his gran is paying close attention to his recent work.

Countdown to the Invictus Games: Meet the Warriors

BBC Two’s documentary in the lead up to the 2014 Invictus Games, created by His Royal Highness Prince Harry of Wales.
This documentary follows a few of the wounded soldiers who share their extraordinary and inspirational stories as they try to secure their place in the British team to compete against comrades from around the world. Meanwhile, HRH Prince Harry keeps a watchful eye on preparations for the games, which have been organized from scratch following his announcement in 2013.

Quote
(Harry) described the reactions of the competitors, including Jacob Emmott from the US driving team, who took Harry for a drive around the off-road track.
"The difference it’s going to make for these guys to be part of these games is huge.
"Seeing some of these faces. Jacob who got shot in the head and drove me round an off-road Land Rover driving course - to watch him drive and see that grin from ear to ear knowing what he has been through, it shows we have done the right thing."
He said it had not been “easy” to organise the event, but said: "The good things of life you can’t have that easy, but we’re at this point, we’ve managed to cross these hurdles, how I don’t know.

Quote
Sir Keith Mills, chairman of the Invictus Games, said: "It’s been a challenge to get something on this scale together in six months - but to see the competitors here, to see the smiles on their faces, to see them competing - and these guys all compete very seriously - is terrific."
He added: "From the beginning back to November, he (Prince Harry) has been involved all the time and on top of everything.

Quote
Asked what he hoped people would take away from the inaugural games, Sir Keith said: "That the guys that have served their country and paid a heavy price deserve to be supported for the rest of their lives, not in a charitable way - but giving them a chance to work and be part of society.
"They are extraordinary human beings and we are showcasing them through the Invictus Games. They have got so much to contribute.

Quote
Your incomparable souls inspire us today. I know it’s going to be a fiercely competitive few days, but the truth is that everyone of you in these games, every service member and veteran, has already earned our highest admiration and our deepest gratitude.

For whatever reason, most of the events for today were embargoed...

Two Australians made history today as they were awarded the first gold medals of the Invictus Games by Prince Harry.

The Australia team, made up of Matthew Taxis and Sarah Archibald, took gold in the Jaguar Land Rover Driving Challenge, which saw 11 nations compete in two stages designed to test the competitors’ driving and navigation skills.

Teams, made up of a driver and navigator, completed an all-terrain stage in a Land Rover Discovery and a tarmac track stage in a Jaguar F-TYPE, with a series of gates required to be correctly negotiated in order.

With the four quickest teams qualifying for this afternoon’s final, it was Australia who came out on top, finishing ahead of silver medalists Germany and the Netherlands, who took bronze.
