Teary-eyed Prince Harry overcome with emotion after Meghan Markle appears on stage in Netflix show

In a touching scene with Meghan Markle from his recent Netflix documentary, Heart of Invictus, Prince Harry was overcome with emotion.

The Prince’s eyes appeared teary as his wife called him up to the stage for the opening ceremony of the Invictus Games in 2020.

“Good evening everyone, thank you so much for your service and to all the family and friends here who have been there supporting you along the way because this is service,” Meghan said as she addressed the crowd.

“This is the Invictus family, and this is dedication. Please give my amazing husband, Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex, a warm welcome to the podium.

After kissing his wife, Harry, who appeared overcome with emotion, said: “Thank you, my love.”

Meghan wore a stunning black and white Khaite ensemble for the occasion, which included a white ruched off-the-shoulder top and black flared pants. She looked stunning. She also slipped into a pair of black heels by Manolo Blahnik.

The documentary, which was released on Wednesday, provided an inside look at the amazing competition that the Duke organized in 2014.

Harry discussed his own mental health and the lack of support he received from others after serving in Afghanistan in the documentary. “The biggest struggle for me was the people,” he said, continuing, “and no one around me could really help. I lacked the network, the support system, and the professional insight to understand what was truly wrong with me.

The first time you seriously consider therapy, unfortunately, is when you’re curled up on the floor in the fetal position, probably wishing that you’d dealt with some of this earlier. And I really want to change that.
