After cheering on during the swimming final, Meghan was pictured awarding medals to Team USA who won gold in the wheelchair basketball.

She placed the gold medallions over the heads before hugging competitors at the Merkur Spiel-Arena.

But Prince Harry trailed behind Meghan during the Invictus Games handout.

Yesterday, Meghan was reunited with Harry after spending almost a week apart when she joined him at a reception for 1,600 athletes and their friends and family.

And the royals looked in high spirits as they entered the basketball court while keen sports fans applauded.

Harry, 38, and Meg, 42, beamed as they took their seats before the match between Ukraine and Australia.

The Duke and Duchess then got into the spirit of the games as they waved their hands from side to side along with the raucous crowd.

It was the first time the pair were out on an official engagement together since New York in May.

But the royal duo were recently spotted partying at Beyonce’s Renaissance tour in California.

 

 

Fans spotted lots of PDA with the couple seen clasping hands and Meghan often touching Harry on his shoulder.

But a body language expert said she believed that they “lacked intimacy”.

Judi James told Fabulous: “These look like public statements and we can see from the long shots they must be aware all eyes are on them.

“There’s very few intimate ‘lost alone together’ moments here or capacity for having one at these venues.

“So many are looking like intentional gestures to register to the world that they are very much a devoted couple.”

Meghan donned a JCrew cardigan with Staud shorts and Chanel Classic Ballet shoes for the visit while Harry was decked out in a black polo shirt, jeans and trainers.

Eagle-eyed fans also spotted that the Duchess was not wearing her sparkling engagement ring which features two of the late Princess Diana’s diamonds.

The pair gasped in excitement as Ukraine edged out Australia in a tightly-fought contest on day four of the games.

The Duke and Duchess were also seen talking animatedly to wheelchair athlete Annika Hutsler of the USA.

And the pair grinned as they posed for pictures with children and handed out medals at the Merkur Spiel-Arena.

Meg landed in the German city on Tuesday night and was photographed after being driven from the airport’s VIP area around 4pm local time.

She joined up with Harry as he had earlier flown to the UK for a WellChild charity bash and vigil at the final resting place of his grandmother Queen Elizabeth.

The couple and guests had been invited for an evening of music, entertainment, and traditional German food.

The Duchess took to the stage at the evening reception on Tuesday and apologised to guests for being “a little late to the party”.

Meghan explained she had to make milkshakes and get their children Archie, four, and daughter Lilibet, two, “settled down” before she could fly from LA.

Harry stood beside her clasping his hands and grinning while the Duchess gave a two minute speech to guests.

The event, hosted by Ken Fisher – Chairman and CEO, and Dave Coker, President, Fisher House Foundation – was held at a conference centre inside Dusseldorf airport.

Meghan told the crowd: “It’s so special to be here and I’m sorry I’m a little late for the party.

“Three milkshakes and a school drop-off and I just landed a couple of hours ago.

“I am thrilled that the first event I can do for Invictus is here with all of you.

“It’a amazing and I hear it has got off to a good start so far.”

Harry had earlier been enjoying the Invictus Games on his own and sat with pal and BBC presenter JJ Chambers, 36, who appeared in 2020 Strictly.

The Prince appeared to be in an excited mood yesterday as he lived every emotion from the sideline watching competitors in the wheelchair basketball.

It comes as German media outlets have reported that the Duchess will deliver a “very emotional” closing speech during the farewell ceremony
