Prince Harry has made his first appearance after confirming he will attend his father King Charles III’s coronation in London next month without wife Meghan Markle.

The Duke of Sussex appeared in a video shown at an Invictus Games event in Berlin yesterday to mark 150 days until the competition begins in Düsseldorf in September.

Harry, 38, opened his speech in German, confidently saying ‘guten abend meine damen und herren’ which translates as ‘good evening ladies and gentlemen’.

The Duke then thanked Hendrik Wüst, Prime Minister of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia, along with members of parliament and Team Germany for their support.

Harry – who was wearing a navy suit and white shirt in the clip – launched the games for wounded, injured, and sick servicemen and women nearly a decade ago in 2014.

He said: ‘Guten abend meine damen und herren. First and foremost I would like to thank Prime Minister Wüst, members of parliament, Team Germany and all those gathered here tonight for your continued support. We are just 150 days away.’

It comes after Buckingham Palace and a spokesman for the Sussexes confirmed on April 12 that Harry would attend the coronation at Westminster Abbey on May 6.

However, Meghan will stay home in the US with their children Archie and Lilibet following ‘extensive discussions’ between London and California.

It is understood that the King and Prince William have had no meaningful dialogue with Harry since the late Queen’s funeral at the Abbey last September.

Harry will play no part in next month’s official procession, walking in and out as a guest – and front row seats will be reserved for working members of the Royal Family.

Friends of the Sussexes have said Harry’s visit to Britain will be a ‘fairly quick trip’ and that he will only be attending the coronation at the Abbey.
