Delivering the closing speech at the Grand Finale of Invictus 2023, Prince Harry spoke of a substance that instilled power and hope in the crowd. And as overwhelming as the last year’s, his words have had a tremendous effect both on his audience and the eagle-eyes royal fans keeping a tab on them online. Focussing on uniforms, the Duke started off by saying how diverse participants from various nations had an attachment to their own country’s outfit a couple of days ago.
