German city of Dusseldorf gives a golden welcome to Prince Harry & Meghan Markle
Harry and Meghan flew into the historic Rhine city of Dusseldorf in Germany today, with Harry there to launch the countdown to the 2023 Invictus Games that will be hosted there between September 9th and 16th next year. The weather gods delivered glorious sunshine for the day that saw the couple visit the city's Rathaus (Town Hall) where Prince Harry unveiled a sign with the words "A Home for Respect" the motto for the Dusseldorf Games that was chosen by Harry.
Meghan and Harry were invited into the Town Hall where they met town dignitaries and members of the military, before being asked to sign the City's Golden (visitors) Book. Harry thanked the city and the Bundeswehr (German military) for their willingness to host the Invictus Games 2023.
Dusseldorf literally rolled out a red carpet for the couple's visit to the town square. After signing the visitors book, Meghan and Harry took time to meet with some of the hundreds of residents who had waited patiently in the square to catch a glimpse of the couple. Meghan and Harry shook hands, petted dogs, chatted with families and their children, and allowed people to take selfies with them.
