Meghan Markle Refused To Leave Center Stage As Prince Harry Closed The Invictus Games
British royal family news divulges that Prince Harry got emotional as he closed out the Invictus Games in Dusseldorf, Germany on Saturday night.
His lecture was short but sweet at just five minutes, but he took the opportunity to turn the spotlight away from his PR loving wife Meghan Markle and back where it belongs—on the courageous, wounded athletes participating in the Games.
He founded the week-long games in 2014 for veterans in multiple countries, based on America’s Wounded Warriors Games.

Harry’s attempt to shine a light on the athletes was short lived however, as diva Meghan Markle remained at Harry’s side, in a strapless green gown with cutouts showing off her skin.
According to the Daily Mail, the former basic cable actress “beamed at Team USA when they took their place for the closing ceremony of the Invictus Games.”

Anti-American Bruce Springsteen’s song, Born in the USA, played as the home team emerged at the Merkur Spiel-Arena. Meghan took that moment to show off, energetically blowing kisses to the team.
She was hard to ignore in her shiny £830 Raylene dress from Cult Gaia and sky high heels.
In contrast Prince Harry knew his place, applauding from “his front row seat – and took to the stage to thank people for coming.” No blowing kisses.

Harry was suitably dressed in a dark suit and shirt and sat next to Elke Budenbender, the wife of the German President, Frank-Walter Steinmeier.
Meanwhile, Meghan dressed to impress with her £525 Purist leather stillettos, £595 Kimai diamond earrings, a £5,000 Cartier bracelet and a £50,000 Lorraine Schwartz emerald cut diamond pinky ring.
The outlet previously reported that the pinky ring was made with the alleged controversial stones from a suspect source.

The crowd was serenaded by Eurovision Song Contest runner up Sam Ryder and somehow Meghan found reason to stand with him, too: “The Space Man singer could be seen holding Meghan’s hand as he performed.”
Whatever you think about the diva, you have to admit, she has no shame in her game. Tell us royal fans, would you like Meghan to be a little more discrete when an event is not about HER?
