Harry and William’s Rivalry Takes Center Stage During Invictus Games
As Prince Harry and Meghan Markle enjoy a positive reception at the Invictus Games in Dusseldorf, Germany, the ongoing feud between Harry and his brother Prince William seems far from over. The week saw both brothers trying to outshine each other, with William and his wife Kate Middleton engaging in high-profile activities, seemingly to counter Harry and Meghan’s presence at the Invictus Games.

The Invictus Games, a paralympic-style event for wounded veterans founded by Prince Harry, became a stage for the couple to showcase a united and joyful front. They were seen holding hands, taking selfies, and giving impromptu speeches, a stark contrast to their previous expressions of resentment towards the royal family. However, this joyous occasion was met with a series of high-profile engagements by Prince William and Kate Middleton, including a visit to a men’s jail and a forest school focused on teaching kids about conservation.
Despite the positive atmosphere at the Invictus Games, the underlying tension between the brothers was evident. Harry’s unexpected appearance at St George’s Chapel to remember the late Queen Elizabeth overshadowed William’s official act of remembrance. In turn, William released a film of an hour-long conversation with Kate and aunt Anne, overshadowing Harry’s Invictus launch. This back-and-forth showcases the deep rift between the brothers, with no mention of the Invictus Games during William’s discussion on the podcast about disabled sport.
