Prince Harry to visit Singapore and Sydney

3rd- 8th June 2017

As previously announced, Prince Harry will travel to Singapore and Sydney in June to attend events for the Invictus Games and his charity Sentebale.

Prince Harry will arrive in Singapore on Saturday 3rd June. On the 4th, His Royal Highness will undertake two engagements. The first will be an Action for Aids reception at Eden Hall. HIV and AIDS is one of Prince Harry’s focuses for his charitable work. During this time he will also meet with young people to discuss mental health issues. The second engagement will see him taking part in an iftar, the breaking of the fast during Ramadan, with young Singaporeans.

The following day on Monday 5th June, The Prince will take part in the Sentebale Royal Salute Polo Cup, hosted at the Singapore Polo Club. The annual event will raise funds for Prince Harry’s charity Sentebale to support vulnerable children and young people living with and affected by HIV in Lesotho and Botswana.

His Royal Highness will then travel to Sydney, where on Wednesday 7th June he will take part in a programme of events and activities to mark the official launch of the Invictus Games Sydney 2018. The fourth Invictus Games will be held in Sydney from 20th to 27th October, 2018 and will include over 500 competitors from 17 nations competing in 10 adaptive sports events. As Patron of the Invictus Games Foundation, The Prince will take the opportunity to learn about the preparations already underway, to spend time meeting potential competitors and their families, and to join Australia in celebrating what will be an exciting event.

Prince Harry will first attend a launch ceremony at Admiralty House, where he will join dignitaries and members of the Australian Invictus Games squad to welcome the 2018 Invictus Games to Sydney, and start the countdown on 500 days to go until the Opening Ceremony. His Royal Highness will be among those delivering speeches at the event.

After the launch event, The Prince will join members of the 2017 Invictus Games Australian squad and their families in a reception on the lawn of Admiralty House to hear about their preparations for the third Games which take place in Toronto in September this year. Celebrating the role of families in supporting recovery will be a major theme of the Invictus Games Toronto 2017.

That afternoon, Prince Harry will head over to Circular Quay to watch a demonstration of Invictus Games sports, including sitting volleyball, indoor rowing, wheelchair basketball and wheelchair rugby. His Royal Highness will head out onto the water to watch a sailing race around the iconic Sydney Harbour.

On 8th June, Prince Harry will have a private working day with the organisers of Invictus Games Sydney 2018 to visit some of the venues to be used in the Games and to get an update on how plans are developing.
