Prince Harry praises Danish Invictus Games team

ICONINSIDER — Prince Harry has praised Denmark’s Invictus Games team.
The 33-year-old royal was joined by Danish royal Prince Joaquim during a visit to the Copenhagen Danish Veterans Centre earlier this week, where they met with army veterans, some of whom had played for their country in Harry’s Olympic style games held in Toronto last month.
And Prince Harry took a moment to congratulate those who had taken part, specifically praising the wheelchair rugby team who had managed to secure a gold medal for Denmark.
He said: “My congratulations go out to them all, but particularly to Denmark’s gold medal winning wheelchair rugby team. I watched them win gold in person and I can tell you it was an amazing game.
“It was fantastic to see your guys progress so much since Orlando, even beating the UK in the process.”
Harry arrived in Denmark on Wednesday (25.10.17), and his trip comes as the latest in a series of European trips carried out by the royal family in the wake of the UK’s decision to leave the European Union.
Whilst attending a reception in the Danish capital of Copenhagen, Harry used his speech to highlight the “shared values and strong alliance” that Denmark shares with the UK, noting that the countries have “an unbreakable bond”.
He said: “I am delighted to be here on my first visit to Denmark. The warmth of your welcome has been incredible, and I’ve had an inspiring first day in your beautiful city – I can’t quite believe it’s taken me so long to visit.
“This trip is a clear reminder of the shared values and strong alliance the UK has with Denmark. Our two countries have an unbreakable bond which is as strong now as it ever has been.”
