The Duke of Sussex got candid about the Invictus Games completing five noteworthy years and also his not-so-great moments in the last few years.

In an Instagram video (watch the 3-minute clip below) posted to his account he shares with his wife, Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, the 34-year-old celebrated the 5-year anniversary of the Invictus Games - the athletic competition he founded for wounded veterans - by reflecting upon the annual event. "What they represent, the strength and determination, the grit, every part of it", he said, comparing the strength of the Invictus competitors to what he saw exhibited by soldiers on the battlefield.

The Invictus Games first took place in London on September 10, 2014.

"[Nerves about] The weather, because the opening ceremony was outdoor, and selfishly, I guess, my speech". Prince Harry looked dapper in a blue suit and a green tie, along with an Invictus Games badge on his lapel.

"On the night, we had the lecture or podium right in front of all the competitors so I could just see all their faces, and they started chanting", Prince Harry said.

Harry also said he was especially anxious about his speech at the opening ceremony as he felt that he had a short window to get the words out.

It is the second of two engagements in support of the foundation after Harry attended a reception to celebrate the anniversary of the Invictus Games at Guildhall in London on Tuesday.

Harry's own experience in the army helped him get through the turmoil suffered in the wake of the death of his mother, Princess Diana.

A portion of revenue from the day's trades will go to the Invictus Games Foundation, of which Harry is a patron. It will be their first official tour as a family and Prince Harry is quite excited about the same.

The former Army captain listened as former competitors JJ Chalmers, from the United Kingdom, and William Reynolds, from the USA, shared their recovery journey post-Invictus Games. During the 2017 games, Harry and his now-wife made their first public appearance together while at the games in Toronto.

The Invictus Games was created by Harry after a visit to the Warrior Games in 2013.

"It's been a real honour to see first hand how this event changes people's lives", Jackson wrote on Instagram.
