The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are due to go on their royal tour this autumn and will be going to Australia to attend the Invictus Games, which Harry set up for injured and disabled army veterans. Now football ace David has been named an ambassador to the games, so he’ll be heading Down Under in October to spend time with the newlyweds in the royal box. David shared the news in a post on Instagram, writing: “I’ve been lucky enough to meet and work with many serving, veteran and wounded British armed forces personnel over the years and I’ve been humbled by the courage, resilience and spirit shown by each and every one of them.

The entire Invictus Games team, led by the Duke of Sussex, has achieved remarkable things in such a short space of time, using sport as a powerful force to rehabilitate and unite and I can’t wait to be part of the energy and the excellence of the Games this year.”

Although he doesn’t say whether wife Victoria will be joining him in Sydney, it would be a chance for her to form a bond with fashion fan Meghan and get closer to the couple. Who knows, she may even get the Duchess to wear some of her next VB collection – and there’s no better ad for a brand than that.
