Meghan will join Harry in Dusseldorf for the Invictus Games

Meghan Markle is under fire for an “ironic” message she is set to deliver as she prepares to join Prince Harry at the Invictus Games.

Meghan will join Harry in Dusseldorf for the multi-sport event, which the Duke of Sussex founded in 2014.

According to Prince Harry's biography, Angela Levin, Meghan is set to deliver a personal message to the wounded, injured and sick servicemen and women who will be competing at the event.

Levin believes the Duchess will focus on a message of “courage and resilience”, something she said is “ironic”.

“I thought that was quite ironic, because she represents neither of those things.”

It comes after the Duke of Sussex gave fans a teaser of his upcoming Netflix documentary centred around the games.

The trailer for Heart of Invictus saw Harry speak about his experience of setting up the initiative and delved into his relationship with veterans.

One notable absentee from the video was his wife, Meghan, but it remains unclear as to whether she will be missing from the show itself.

According to Levin, Harry came across more like his “former self” in the teaser for the upcoming series.

“There was an advert for the series, and he struck me more like the Harry I knew in 2017 when I was writing his biography”, she told GB News.

“He was brilliant with the soldiers who were damaged mentally or physically.

“They said he’d given them a wish to live. I said to him, ‘do you use this as a way of helping you with your own mental health issues’.

“I thought he would throw me out, he waited about a minute to answer, and he said ‘you’re right, it does help me’.

“I just wonder if he is coming out of the pit he has been in and he’s becoming more like a man himself.

“He’s in a very bad, miserable state. He was happy before, but he isn’t now.”

A camera crew for the project joined Harry and Meghan when they visited the Games in The Hague in the Netherlands in 2022.

The series, which was first announced more than two years ago, has been made by Harry and Meghan’s Archewell Productions company.

It is directed by Orlando von Einsiedel and produced by Joanna Natasegara, who worked together on the Oscar-winning short The White Helmets.

Harry is set to travel to Germany for the next tournament which begins on September 9.

The series is set to be released by the streaming giant on August 30.
