Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan will be welcomed as “VVIP” guests at the Invictus Games in the Netherlands. What that means and what the power couple could expect in the host country.

Royal fans should have marked the upcoming weekend in red on their calendars. Because it is the first time since the so-called “Megxit” that Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan will open together in Europe. The target is this year’s Invictus Games, which Prince Harry founded. The sporting event is an affair of the heart for the grandson of Queen Elizabeth II.

And this is how he will begin the long journey from Los Angeles to The Hague after skipping the memorial service for Prince Philip in London a few weeks ago. But not only is Harry on his way to Europe, but also his wife, Duchess Meghan.

One of the reasons Harry didn’t travel to England was because he felt he lacked protection for his family. Prince Harry has been locked in a legal battle with the British government over his safety for months. In the Netherlands, Meghan and Harry would be given “VVIP” status: “Very, very important person”. As well as their own bodyguards, the Sussexes should also be protected by the police, and they have already been trained for possible exceptional situations – such as a terrorist attack.

Netflix cameras are included

Both should also use their stay of several days in Europe for another professional purpose. As the English “Mirror” reports exclusively, the couple will be accompanied by a team of Netflix documentaries during the matches. It was previously announced in the fall of 2020 that the two landed a mega streaming service deal with their previously founded production company Archewell Productions. The first “Heart of Invictus” format is a multi-part documentary series about the Invictus Games. Among other things, the format will support several participants and the organizers in their preparations for the event.

If Dutch royal fans are already delighted to welcome the couple to their home, the most famous personalities of the country will not meet them: an audience with King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima is not on the program.
