Meghan whoops as she watches Invictus Games action with Harry in Germany
Meghan Markle is clearly enjoying herself as she whoops watching the Invictus Games action with Prince Harry.
The pair are together at the sporting competition for injured veterans and military personnel in Dusseldorf, Germany.
The Duchess of Sussex has flew out for the final day of competition, while her husband Harry has been there since the start.
Earlier today, she made a speech where she spoke of the reason for her absence earlier in the week – explaining she had to get her children “settled down” before she could fly out, particularly Prince Archie as he had to be dropped off at school.
The pair made royal fans go wild when they appeared together, attending a glitzy reception for 1,600 athletes and their friends and family.

And Meghan was singled out for praise after she got straight to work just an hour after landing in Düsseldorf.
The Duchess of Sussex had caught an overnight flight, which takes around 10 hours and 35 minutes from LAX to London Heathrow on Monday night before continuing her onward journey to Düsseldorf on Tuesday.
She spent less than two hours in the UK before getting a connecting British Airways plane to Germany.
The flight typically lasts an hour and 15 minutes. This means the combined journey from LA to Dusseldorf was just under 12 hours.
A video on Twitter showed the pair chatting to fans during the private reception.
One royal fan said: “Massive respect to Meghan 12-13 hour flight from LA, with a change in London. One hour after arrival @WeAreInvictus she is changed and looking fabulous.”

Another one added: “She is such a team player because I would have been dead on my feet after that long flight and then attending a reception that same evening.”
In her speech Meghan said: “Hi everybody. It is so special to be here and I’m sorry I’m a little late to the party.
“Like so many of you, you know this is about family and friends and the community that Invictus has created and Fisher House has created, and so I had to spend a little bit more time getting the little ones settled at home.
“Three milkshakes and a school drop off and I just landed a couple of hours ago and I am thrilled that the first event I can do for Invictus is here with all of you.”
The Fisher House Foundation is a non-profit organisation which provides a support system and a place to stay for the families of veterans while a loved one is on hospital.
The reception attended by Meghan and Harry was hosted by the company’s CEO and Chairman Ken Fisher and the President of the Foundation, Dave Coker.
Unlike Meghan, Harry did not want to address the guests, as he replied when she offered him the microphone: “You don’t need to hear from me again.”
At last Saturday’s Invictus Games opening ceremony the Duke took the opportunity to speak to those assembled in German, partially echoing JFK’s famous 1963 speech when he declared: “Ich bin ein Düsseldorfer.”
