Meghan Markle and Prince Harry actively participate in philanthropic work. The Duke even founded the Invictus Games in 2014 with the primary goal is to using sports to inspire recovery, support rehabilitation, and foster respect for those who serve their country. It is not about just sports but it captures hearts, challenges minds and changes lives. Just like every year, the Sussexes were to grace the mega event and fuel motivation for the participants and attendees.

This year’s Invictus Games are also special for the Duchess, who is all set to make her first official appearance in months. Not only this, Markle was also set to deliver an ironic message on courage and resilience. However, it seems like that is not going to happen as the mother of two has been snubbed and replaced from the schedule.

Another surprising turn came into the California-based royals’ lives as Invictus Games made huge changes in their guest list. Reportedly, the 42-year-old former actress was mysteriously removed from the schedule and replaced with somebody else. Founded by the Duke himself, the event will begin at Dusseldorf on Saturday. Harry will attend the opening ceremony, followed by his wife’s presence at the week-long tournament in the forthcoming week.

Reportedly, the original guide for the 2023 Games included the Duchess, with an indication of her taking the stage as well. On the 16th of September, Markle was to present a division about the competitor’s stories. However, with the recent changes, there is no mention of her. Instead, a German TV host Hadnet Tesfai is going to take Markle’s place.

In a report by Daily Mail, a source informed that the removal of the Duchess’ name was an error. She will certainly appear attending the event alongside the Duke of Sussex. Although at the previous year’s event, she made a speech at the inaugural ceremony, there is still a mystery surrounding this snub because of Prince Harry’s return to England.
