Prince Harry meets a lot of people in the course of his work. He’s a very popular man, after all, and he’s expected to go out and meet his fans whenever appropriate. Many of the royals meet their subjects when out and about, in fact; Queen Elizabeth II is even estimated to shake at least 44,000 hands annually. But despite the sheer number of people whom Harry has encountered over the years, he still remembered one in particular while at an event in Sydney.
That trip to the Australian city took place in June 2017, and Harry was there to promote the Invictus Games. The games provide the chance for injured and disabled armed service personnel to compete in their favored sports, and Harry came up with the idea himself after serving in the British armed forces.
