Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have made another memorable joint appearance. On Friday, Markle and Harry attended the 2018 Invictus Games trials in Bath, England. These particular events were for the 400 athletes who hope to make the U.K. Team (there are 72 spots) and attend the official games in October in Sydney, Australia. As you can probably imagine, Markle made a good impression on the athletes, because of course she did.
According to People, Markle made a connection with Maurillia Simpson, who injured her leg after being hit by a car while stationed in Germany. She also did three tours in Iraq and won a gold for discus and a silver medal for shotput for Great Britain in 2014’s Invictus Games.
While at the 2018 trails, Simpson (she’s to the right of Markle in the photo below) talked with Markle about the weather, which is a British tradition. Simpson dished, “We were talking about the weather and she joked about how British she has already become because she’s always talking about the weather. She said, ‘I’m British now. I’m totally British because I speak about the weather all the time.”
Simpson also seems to have a close relationship with Harry, who she’s known since the games began. “Every time [Harry] sees me now he gives me an embrace,” she told People. “It’s just something we do and I always tell him how much I appreciate him as a person and for who he is to us as soldiers and how gratefully we are for him giving us this as part of our recovery.”
The 44-year-old athlete also said she congratulated Harry on his May 19 wedding to Markle and expressed how happy she is he’s found someone…
