Prince Harry has broken his silence for the first time since this week’s royal crisis talks.

It came after he and wife Duchess Meghan issued a statement revealing that they plan to ‘step back’ as senior royals.

Following the emergency discussion between the royals, the Queen spoke out in support of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, saying in a statement, ‘My family and I are entirely supportive of Harry and Meghan’s desire to create a new life as a young family’.

And now Prince Harry has spoken out for the first time since the discussions, to confirm news about his sport event, The Invictus Games.

Sharing a video to his Instagram account, the Duke revealed that the new home for the sixth Invictus Games, which will take place in 2022, will be Germany’s Düsseldorf.

"This year we are heading to The Hague where I am delighted that we will be joined by 20 nations for 2020 as Belgium and the Republic of Korea join the Invictus family," said Prince Harry in his video.

"In 2022, the Invictus Games will travel to a new country," he continued, "a new home for respect for our armed forces. The story continues".

Alongside the snap, the Duke wrote, ‘I hope everyone in Germany is ready for what will be an incredible week of sport!

I have no doubt that the German public will get right behind these Games and that every single competitor can expect a warm welcome and an amazing atmosphere’.

The Prince set up the Invictus Games back in 2014, to allow wounded Armed Forces veterans to demonstrate what they are capable of physically and celebrate the power of sport rehabilitation.
