Prince Harry's ongoing feud with his family is overshadowing the Invictus Games, causing distress to veterans involved in the event.

The Duke of Sussex initiated the sporting event in 2014, inspired by his time with the Army in Afghanistan. The Prince and Princess of Wales played crucial roles in its early success through their foundation, securing sponsors and funding. Nine years ago, Harry, his father, and brother attended the opening ceremony and multiple events at the London games, demonstrating a united front. However, since Harry met Meghan, King Charles and Prince William have had no involvement.

Despite Harry's dedication to the Invictus Games, officials report empty seats at the current event in Dusseldorf. Some believe the participation of King Charles, William, and Kate could boost attendance.

While this year's games in Germany are the largest yet, with 22 nations and 500+ athletes, Harry's UK family has remained silent. Veterans like Ben McBean, who inspired Harry to create Invictus, feel both sides of the rift between the brothers should have put differences aside.

Critics argue that the Royal Family's apparent lack of support for Harry should not affect disabled veterans competing in the Invictus Games.

Despite the ongoing family tension, Prince Harry continues to champion the Invictus Games, attracting enthusiastic attendees and even welcoming Meghan's participation at this year's event.

Harry's commitment to the Invictus Games remains strong, but the royal family's strained relationship is casting a shadow over this important event for wounded and disabled veterans.
