Meghan Markle’s key role in Harry’s Invictus Games revealed – with couple appearing TOGETHER for first time in months

NEW details of Meghan Markle's key role in Prince Harry's Invictus Games has been revealed - with the couple set to make their first official joint engagement in months. The Duke and Duchess will take to the stage at Harry 's Invictus Games in Düsseldorf, Germany , in September, The Telegraph reports. Meghan, 42, will host the 'Lifestories Scene' segment at the event's closing ceremony, reports claim. She is set to make a "poignant" contribution - noting the bravery and resilience of the injured servicemen and women competing. And Harry, 38, will deliver a goodbye speech at the closing ceremony on September 16. The last time the couple attended a public event their spokesperson claimed they were involved in a " near-catastrophic car chase ", which they said dragged out for more than two hours. They claimed Harry and Meghan 's car was the target of a "relentless pursuit" by paparazzi after an awards ceremony in New York . However, cops and a cab driver slammed the claims, dubbing them " exaggerated ". New York Post previously reported the couple will head to Germany for the games , which Harry started in 2014 to give former soldiers the chance to compete in an international multi-sport event. The games will start on September 9 - one day after the first-year anniversary of the Queen's death. It comes after Harry has made an emotional statement about "family" in the trailer for his first Netflix series without Meghan. The Duke of Sussex's new documentary Heart of Invictus will be available on the streaming service from August 30. It covers the injured and ill military veterans who take part in Harry's Paralympic-style Invictus Games . The trailer for the show starts with a speech Harry gave at the opening ceremony of the contest in the Netherlands last year. He said: "If your goal was to make your country proud, you've done it. "If your goal was to make your family happy, you've achieved it. "You are people of substance, of resilience, of strength - you have the heart of Invictus." The show is airing almost three years after Harry and Meghan signed a multi-million deal with Netflix thought to be worth £88million. Their biggest hit to date has been a documentary slamming their treatment by the Royal Family . Harry's new series appears to not feature Meghan, with whom he has collaborated on past Netflix projects. He launched the Invictus Games in 2014, with the next contest set to be held in Dusseldorf, Germany this September. In a video message last week, Harry said: "I can’t wait to see all of you and have the whole community together once again. It’s been too long. "You’re all on different parts of your healing journey. We all are, we always will be. "But I can assure you that this experience you’re gonna have will hopefully be life changing, and you’ll come out of it a better person for sure. "Thank you for your service. Thank you for your commitment, your determination getting to this point. "We’re gonna have a lot of fun. It’s gonna be the best games ever – best games yet." 21 countries including Israel , Colombia and Nigeria will take part in the tournament next month. Rita Ora will sing at the closing ceremony on September 16.
