Despite facing significant scrutiny , Prince Harry remains unwavering in his decisions regarding the Invictus Games; Harry will be in the UK next week to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the Invictus Games before the event moves to Canada next year.

However, with the Duke’s participation in the Games facing scrutiny, organizers have revealed that only two cities are being considered to host the 2027 event: Washington DC in the US and Birmingham in the UK. The definitive decision on the location is anticipated to be made in the upcoming weeks, but it’s now confirmed to revisit a previous host city.

Lord Allen, Chair of the Invictus Games Foundation, said in a statement: “We were delighted to receive such a strong field of applications to host the Invictus Games in 2027, which gives us tremendous confidence for this next iteration of the Games following Invictus Games Vancouver Whistler 2025 presented by ATCO and Boeing. “Both cities now shortlisted for 2027 have kept the experiences of the competitors and supporters at their core, building different but hugely exciting bids. We look forward to the next stage of the process and selecting another inspirational iteration of the games over the summer.”

The announcement comes as reports suggest around 2,000 ex-military have left the games claiming the event has “lost its original meaning”. It was initially set up by Harry in 2014 to help support wounded, injured and sick service personnel and veterans. Some have reportedly also taken issue with Meghan Markle’s involvement and claimed it is becoming “too royal”. However, despite the alleged pleas, one PR expert believes Harry will have no intention of leaving his project behind.

Ryan McCormick told us: “”Harry had no qualms about being honored as a ‘Legend of Aviation’ in January so I don’t believe he’ll heed calls to step down from the Invictus Games.” Ryan did suggest stepping down could pay off for Harry, though. He added: “If The Duke did, however, and said it was out of respect to veterans, it could be a sizeable boost of positive PR.”
