In anticipation of the Invictus Games, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have reportedly secured a plush $2,500-a-night suite at Düsseldorf's esteemed Hyatt Regency, one of the city's top-tier hotels, according to The Mirror.
The suite, boasting a breathtaking terrace view of The Rhine, offers the royal couple not just opulence but also ample security provisions. Beyond the suite's extravagance, the Hyatt Regency pampers its guests with a myriad of luxurious amenities ranging from a state-of-the-art spa and fitness gym to world-class restaurants serving global cuisines.
The couple is expected to immerse themselves in these comforts during their eight-day stay in the city.
Harry Champions Invictus Games 2023
The Invictus Games, a sporting event close to Prince Harry's heart, will span from September 9 to 16.
Harry, at 38, flew out ahead of Meghan from their Montecito, California residence, after paying respects to his late grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, at Windsor, marking her first death anniversary. Just before, he made a notable appearance in the UK for the WellChild Awards on September 7.
As the founder of the Invictus Games, the Duke seamlessly transitioned to Germany, inaugurating the charity games. The event is set to showcase the resilience and talent of 500 injured servicemen and women from 21 nations in 10 distinctive sports tournaments.
The games commenced with a star-studded opening ceremony, highlighted by Macklemore's performance and an inspiring address from Prince Harry. As the games draw to a close, Meghan, popularly known from her "Suits" days, will be orchestrating an emotional farewell show, celebrating the competitors and their families.
The closing of the games coincides with Prince Harry's 39th birthday, and singer Rita Ora is poised to mark the occasion with her performance. Prince Harry pioneered the Invictus Games in 2014, modeling it after the Paralympics, as a salute to wounded servicemen and women.
The event also holds sentimental value for the royal couple; their budding romance became public at the 2017 games in Toronto, where they were first spotted hand-in-hand during a wheelchair tennis match. Their love story culminated in a fairy-tale wedding at St George’s Chapel, Windsor in May 2018.
