The Duke & Duchess of Sussex Visit Australia – Day 9: Sydney

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have spent their final day in Australia focussed on The Invictus Games ! Harry and Meghan attended this afternoon the Wheelchair Basketball Finals between the Netherlands and the USA. Instead of sitting in their reserved area, they decided to sit in the bleachers with the rest of the crowd. Meghan got to hand the gold medals to her home country as the USA team won the finals. Though one Dutch player managed to steal a kiss from the Duchess upon getting his medal.VIDEOVIDEO


In the evening, the couple attended the closing ceremony at the Qudos Bank Arena. The Duchess got to make a speech about what she witnessed during the Games, what the Games stand for. Meghan mentioned her 2014 USO tour, where she decided to spend her holidays touring army bases in countries such as Italy, Spain or Turkey to spread the holiday cheer with the soldiers. I suggest you listen to it, it’s worth it. MEGHAN’S SPEECH
