Harry and Meghan Add to Their Busy Schedule

On Saturday, Prince Harry, Patron of the Invictus Games Foundation, and Ms Meghan Markle attend a reception hosted by Malcolm Turnbull, Prime Minister of Australia and his wife celebrating the forthcoming Invictus Games Sydney 2018 at the Australian High Commission.

Sydney is the fourth city to host the Invictus Games, after London in 2014, Orlando in 2016, and Toronto in 2017.

The Invictus Games Sydney 2018 will take place from 20-27th October and will see over 500 competitors from 18 nations compete in 11 adaptive sports.

At the reception Prince Harry and Ms Markle will hear more about how plans are progressing for this year’s Games in Sydney.

The soon to be bride and groom will also meet a number of UK and Australian servicemen and women, some of whom have experience of competing in the Invictus Games.

On Sunday, Prince Harry, Patron of the London Marathon Charitable Trust since 2012, will attend the 2018 Virgin Money London Marathon.

The Prince will be invited to make the presentations to the winners of the elite men, women, wheelchair and IPC races. He will also have the opportunity to meet a selection of volunteers in the administration of the race and members of St. John Ambulance.

Since its inception in 1981, the London Marathon Charitable Trust has awarded grants more than £68 million to more than 1,200 organisations in London, Surrey and elsewhere in the UK.

On Monday, 23 April, the couple will attend a memorial service at St Martin-in-the-Fields, London, on Monday to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the murder of Stephen Lawrence and to celebrate his life and legacy.

This year marks 25 years since Stephen Lawrence was killed, and 20 years since the Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust was founded.

Established in 1998 by Baroness Lawrence in memory of her son, the Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust has campaigned for fairness, justice and equality for all. The trust has a continuing commitment to helping young people from disadvantaged backgrounds to create a fairer society in which everyone, regardless of their background, can thrive.

Harry and Meghan will meet Baroness Lawrence before the service and HRH will read a message of support on behalf of The Prince of Wales.
