Prince Harry Shows He's Still a Natural-Born Leader in Self-Recorded Video About Invictus Games

Looks like Prince Harry’s Invictus Games are getting a new date.

The Duke of Cambridge revealed the news in a video message on Thursday, announcing that the event has been postponed until May or June 2021 due to the current coronavirus pandemic.

“This was an incredibly difficult decision for all of us to have to make,” he said in the clip. “And I’m so grateful for everybody that’s worked so hard over the past couple of weeks to try to find any alternative to try and carry on these Games in a different way—in a safe way. But this decision was the most sensible and the safest option for all of you—for your families and everybody else—involved in these Games.”

He continued by urging the participants to use this time to become “fitter” and prep themselves both mentally and physically. Watch the full video, in which Harry once again shows off his natural-born leadership skills, below.

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 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.

The video comes hours after Prince William released his own statement in an Instagram video, in which he addressed the U.K. asking them to come together during this time of adversity.

We’re sorry to hear the news, but we’re definitely looking forward to next year’s event.
