Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle, who stepped out to cheer on athletes taking part in the Invictus Games, were mobbed by crowds on Thursday.
Meghan and Harry faced unexpected situation as they arrived to watch Nigeria against Ukraine in the seated volleyball at the Invictus Games in Dusseldorf, the excited fans rushed to the couple for selfies.
Prince Harry, who turns 39 on Friday, was bombarded with requests for selfies and eventually had to urge everyone to sit down and turn their attention to the match.
The Duchess of Sussex, wearing a white Ralph Lauren Polo vest and white denim jeans, was given a Nigerian flag to wave, although she diplomatically kept it on her lap.
The US-based couple, who were also given two gifts in plastic bags, were only there for around 10 minutes as Nigeria won the match 21-5.
The Duchess then made her way to the sidelines at another court in the Merkur Spiel-Arena to meet a German competitor who had broken his leg earlier in the day. Tino Wesser, an Afghanistan veteran, was competing in the sitting volleyball when he slipped on the wet court.
Meghan, said to have asked if she could meet him after hearing how disappointed he was to have been ruled out of the rest of the competition, posed for selfies with him and his family after Germany’s victory against Romania secured them a place in the quarter-finals.
Earlier, the couple met Gen Guglielmo Miglietta, the Nato Joint Force Commander, who is at the Games with a delegation of 1,100 personnel, relatives and students. They later visited competitors and officials from the Italian and Dutch teams in private.
On Thursday evening, the Archewell team and Meghan were due to take Harry out for dinner to celebrate his birthday.
