PRINCE HARRY STATEMENT ON AFGHANISTAN
The Duke of Sussex has encouraged veterans to “offer support for one another” in the wake of the Taliban resurgence in Afghanistan.
As patron of the Invictus Games Foundation, which supports veterans’ recovery via sports competitions, Harry has issued a joint statement with the organisation’s chair Lord Allen of Kensington CBE and the chief executive Dominic Reid OBE.
Their statement said: “What’s happening in Afghanistan resonates across the international Invictus community.
“Many of the participating nations and competitors in the Invictus Games family are bound by a shared experience of serving in Afghanistan over the past two decades, and for several years, we have competed alongside Invictus Games Team Afghanistan.
“We encourage everybody across the Invictus network – and the wider military community – to reach out to each other and offer support for one another.”
