Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are “definitely putting on a show” at the Invictus Games – but they are not just doing it to quash rumors their marriage is in trouble, claims Kinsey Schofield.
The royal commentator told GB News the international sporting event – which Harry founded in 2014 for injured and wounded veterans – is the “only credible project” the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have left.
“The Duke and Duchess of cuddles. I mean they are definitely putting on a show,” Ms Schofield said.
“I think it’s more than wanting to convince people that there’s no problems at home. I think that the Invictus Games has become the only credible project that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have.
“They’ve really got to nurture this event – because all of their other professional ventures have failed and on such a global scale.”
The Sussex arrived hand-in-hand at Merker Spiel-Arena on Wednesday to watch Australia take on Ukraine in wheelchair basketball.
The couple were spotted with massive grins on their faces as they waved their hands in the air from the sidelines and happily posed for dozens of selfies with fans.
On Tuesday night after Meghan touched down in the German city, the royal couple attended a glitzy reception being held for 1,600 competitors and their loved ones.
The former actress took to the stage to apologise for arriving late, explaining she could not leave Montecito until Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet were “settled” at their California home with their milkshakes.
Ms Schofield also weighed-in on why Meghan did not accompany Harry to the UK to mark the first anniversary of Queen Elizabeth’s death, telling GB News the former actress is “she’s trying to avoid more negative press”.
“I do think it’s a matter of self-preservation. She’s trying to avoid more negative press. That’s what she’s going to get if she’s booed over there or if she’s not celebrated or welcome,” Ms Kinsey said.
“So she’s going to those place where people are going to cheer her on and welcome her. Where’s a better place for that than Invictus games where her husband dominates.
“All eyes should really be on these vets who are competing. Less on the Duke and Duchess of drama and more on these heroes who have taken their struggles and turned them into strengths.”
