Prince Harry just made another major announcement on Instagram...

On Thursday, the Duke of Cambridge revealed that the 2022 Invictus Games will be held in Düsseldorf, Germany.  

"Germany has been a key part of the Invictus Games family since the very start in 2014 and I know that they will be exemplary hosts in picking up the mantle and showcasing what sport continues to do for these inspirational men and women in their recovery," he said in the video. 

Founded by Prince Harry himself, the games are an international sports competition that brings together wounded or sick servicemen and women with the purpose of supporting rehabilitation and recovery.

The announcement comes as competitors prepare for the 2020 Invictus Games, which are to take place this May in The Hague, Netherlands and will consist of more than 500 competitors from 20 nations. The first official Invictus Games took place in London. 

The games hold a special place in Harry’s heart, as he served in the Army for more than 10 years. And just days after welcoming son Archie in May, he traveled to the Netherlands to kick off the official countdown to this year's event.

"As we look ahead to the upcoming Invictus Games The Hague 2020, I'm delighted that two new nations, Belgium and the Republic of Korea, will be taking part for the first time," the Duke of Sussex continued. "Bringing the number of nations in the Invictus Family to 20 in 2020."

Looks like we’re going to Germany!
