Melania Trump prepares for important role at Prince Harry's Invictus Games

Melania Trump prepares for important role at Prince Harry's Invictus Games

Other headliners at the paralympics-esque sporting event, which runs through September 30, will include former US president Barack Obama and First Lady Melania Trump.

Prince Harry, 32, founded the sporting event that uses the "power of sport" with wounded and ill servicemen and women to inspire recovery, support rehabilitation, in addition to developing a better understanding of those who serve their country back in 2014.

Amid this swirl of headline names, the one whose possible appearance remains a mystery is Harry's girlfriend Meghan Markle.

The actress is believed to be filming in Toronto but there has been no announcement about whether she will join Harry.

The Canadian city has been Markle's home for the past several years while she co-stars in the USA Network TV show "Suits".

Kensington Palace said: "The two-day programme will focus on the young people of Copenhagen. [The visit] will include an audience with Her Majesty Queen Margrethe II and an opportunity to meet veterans, including some of the recently returned Danish Invictus Games team".

The Prince's first official engagement was a visit to a symposium, run by the veterans' organisation True Patriot Love Foundation.

"I was heartened by the great success of the inaugural Invictus Games that took place in London in 2015, and the second games in Orlando, Florida a year ago", Barron Trump's mother said in a statement. They will compete in 12 different sports, from powerlifting to cycling and wheelchair rugby.

After serving in Afghanistan, Harry was introduced to the Warrior Games during a trip to the 2013.

The former president and his wife Michelle Obama were early supporters of the games, and Michelle Obama had a good working relationship with Harry.

While the band is promoting their new album Concrete and Gold, Prince Harry is preparing to inaugurate the next Invictus Games, which will take place September 23-30 in Toronto.
