Meghan Markle ‘replaced at Invictus Games’ as she’s ‘taken off schedule’

Meghan Markle has been taken off the schedule of the Invictus Games and has apparently been replaced by a German television presenter.

The official guide for the paralympic-style sporting competition for injured veterans and military personnel originally suggested the Duchess of Sussex would go on stage at the closing ceremony to present a segment about competitors’ lives.

But Meghan’s name is missing from a listing on the website of the eight day long Invictus Games, which begins in Dusseldorf, Germany, on Saturday (September 9).

A detailed schedule now says German TV host Hadnet Tesfai will take Meghan’s place.

The passage, which has been removed, said Meghan would “take to the stage to host the intimate and moving glimpse into the extraordinary journeys of the Invictus Games competitors”, according to Mail Online.

The same publication says sources have claimed the information was “uploaded in error”.

Meghan is still expected to join Prince Harry at the games, which the Duke of Sussex founded in 2014.

The Duchess put in an appearance at last year’s competition to deliver tributes to those taking part and to introduce her husband.

Prince Harry’s arrival in Dusseldorf on Saturday will coincide with a protest by activists claiming the German military will use the competition to recruit people.

A spokesman for the games told Mail Online one of its aims is to “stimulate social discourse on the topics of the military and foreign missions” and “there are – at no time – elements of recruitment for the Bundeswehr”.
