Meghan Markle attends the Opening Ceremony of the Invictus Games

Prince Harry’s girlfriend, Meghan Markle, attended the Opening Ceremony of the Invictus Games in Toronto at the Air Canada Centre on Saturday evening.

The 36-year-old American actress was seated in the stands away from the Prince with her close friend Markus Anderson – the man who introduced the pair last year. It was widely thought that she would be absent from proceedings.

According to Rebecca English of the Daily Mail, one of Harry’s Scotland Yard and taxpayer-funded personal protection officers (PPO) was standing close to Meghan in the stairwell by her seat.

Meanwhile a few stands away, Prince Harry was sat beside First Lady of the United States, Melania Trump, and Governor General of Canada, David Johnston. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his wife, Sophie were in the row in front.

As the Opening Ceremony of the Invictus Games is an official engagement, Prince Harry sat with other dignitaries and took to the stage at the end of the evening to speak to those assembled.

In addition to this, it is both Harry and Meghan’s intention for the event to be focused on the athletes rather than themselves.

Harry gave an inspirational speech at the end of the Opening Ceremony saying, “You are proving anything is possible, you are Invictus.”

After his speech and ahead of the conclusion of the ceremony, Meghan was escorted out of the arena by the PPO, Rebecca English also reported.

This will only fuel more speculation that the couple are (or are soon to be) engaged to be married.

Albeit brief, Meghan’s appearance at the ceremony makes it increasingly likely that she will attend at least another event in the coming days beside Harry. However, this marks the first official engagement she has attended with Harry.

The Invictus Games are being held from Saturday, 23 September to Saturday, 30 September in Toronto with over 550 competitors from 17 countries.
