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.
