The couple, who get married in five weeks on May 19, were in Bath, UK to watch the British athletes training.

The father of three children spoke with Markle, sharing how important the Invictus Games are and how last year’s event had really made a difference to his life. ‘I played both rugby and squash competitively and had been really fit. After I injured myself I told everyone I would be back on the pitch in six weeks – and ended up having my leg amputated.’said Mellon.
As Mellon said how excited he was for this year’s event Markle agreed – ‘She told me that she had never been to Australia but was going to this year’s event and was really looking forward to being there with Harry. ‘
The Royal visit was a real morale boost for the athletes who have a huge respect for Prince Harry and what paper writing he is achieving with the Invictus Games.
The Invictus Games will be held in Sydney from October 20-27
