8 great photos from Harry's Invictus album

Prince Harry with Daimy Gommers, in Orlando to cheer on the Dutch team. This fab photo was taken as Harry toured the Invictus Games sites ahead of the competition opening tomorrow. It's one of some seriously special snaps of the prince on the even of an event that he helped make possible and which clearly means a huge amount to him. Here are eight great images of Harry getting ready for Invcitus.

Don't stop him now, he's having such a good time, he's having a ball...well, a volleyball to be precise. This laugh out loud photo of Prince Harry was taken as he joined the crown for a spot of sitting volleyball - he's tried the sport out himself in the past. Maybe the big grin was a memory of his own prowess at the game - whatever caused it, this smile will be remembered for a long time to come.

Harry met David Romero and his medical alert dog, Jasmine, and it was the pooch who got the pout as the prince puckered up. Their paths crossed as Harry checked out more venues at the Games which were first run in 2014 in London.

Prince Harry is patron of the Invictus Foundation and his commitment to the Games and the work that goes on around them through the year is evident. This second tournament is bigger than the first and there are plans to make the third event, to be held in Toronto, even larger. Athletes from around the world battle for a place in their national teams to take part - here, Harry meets some of the sports stars representing Italy.

Everyone needs an ear and Harry provided just that for two of the youngest spectators at the Games as he toured preparations in Orlando. They talked, Harry listened and everyone had a great afternoon.

Don't you know who I am? Harry enjoys some banter with the backstage staff at the Invictus Games in Florida and adds another great photo to an album that is already going to take some beating and the event hasn't even started yet.

Harry wasn't the only one enjoying the preparations for Invictus as he found out when he met a group of children with the charity 'Give Kids the World Village'. The organisation, based in Florida, provides special holidays for children with life limiting illnesses and their families. The breaks are meant to be unforgettable and Harry did his bit to make sure this one was just that for the children involed.

He's already challenged the Obamas (with a little bit of help from his granny) and Canada's Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, has provided some very elegant squaring up to Harry ahead of the Games. Here, the prince uses that competitive spirit of his to fire up a member of the British team as final preparations get under way for Invictus 2.  The Games start on May 8th and Harry is more than ready to bring it on.
