Prince Harry gets emotional at Meghan Markle’s sweet gesture at Invictus Games

Prince Harry appeared close to tears after Meghan Markle gushed about him during her speech at the opening ceremony of the Invictus Games on April 16.

Body language expert Judi James claimed that the Duchess of Sussex knocked her husband “sideways emotionally” with her speech. In it, she called him her “incredible husband” and a “loving father.” She added that she “could not love and respect him more.”

The Duke of Sussex went up to the stage to a standing ovation from the crowd and he and the 40-year-old shared a brief but sweet kiss. He then thanked her and said, “Thank you, my love.”

James told The Mirror that the kiss was “groundbreaking in royal terms” as it showed them “both smiling proudly as they performed it.” But it reportedly left Prince Harry feeling emotional. She said it appeared to “knock him sideways emotionally” and he just stood there after Meghan Markle left, looking overwhelmed for 30 seconds as the crowd cheered.
