Also on the call were David Wiseman and Dave Henson, both founding members of the CASEVAC Club and veterans who The Duke has worked with on many projects including the Invictus Games.

The Duke sent a special video message to competitors on Saturday 9 May, on what would have marked the opening ceremony of the Invictus Games 2020 in The Hague.

The Duke of Sussex has appeared on The One Show via videolink from Los Angeles, as he speaks of his admiration for war veterans who survived life-changing injuries and went on to inspire others.

They were set to be held in The Hague, Netherlands, this week but have been postponed to 2021.

Harry noted in the clip - which was posted on the Invictus Games Foundation's official account - that he had heard "amazing" stories of families coming together in lockdown, but urged people to "look out for those that have gone quiet".

The official Invictus Games Instagram account wrote, "As #IG2020 prepare to bring The Hague home to you this year, the Invictus Games Foundation Patron The Duke of Sussex has shared a video message of support for the competitors, their friends and families, and all those who were preparing to cheer on worldwide wounded, injured and sick Servicemen and women this May".

A third shared: "Lovely message of support from Harry!"

Apparently, the Duke and Duchess are now posted up at Tyler Perry's (very massive, holy sh*t) home, but they're looking to buy their own place sometime soon.

The Duke of Sussex expressed hope that all of those in the Invictus family are "coping well" and giving a helping hand to each other at this tumultuous time.

"So I have no doubt that you're all rallying around and supporting one another".
