Prince Harry attempted didgeridoo at Invictus Games
Britain’s Prince Harry attempted to play the didgeridoo at the Invictus Games on Tuesday morning (10.05.16).
The 31-year-old royal was keen to heighten the already-buzzing atmosphere during the rowing competition at the sporting event in Florida, Orlando by giving the wind instrument a whirl as he watched the participants perform.
The flame-haired hunk was watching the event unfold with Australian athlete Darren Robinson, from New South Wales, in the spectator stands on the second day of the games when he spotted the intersting instrument resting beside him and asked if he could have a go at playing it.
However, despite his high level of enthusiasm, the prince didn’t manage to quite master the technique and decided to hand back the didgeridoo to Darren in defeat.
He joked with a sigh: “This isn’t my day.”
Meanwhile, Harry – the grandson of Queen Elizabeth – is currently pouring his heart and soul into the Invictus Games – a sporting contest for injured service personnel – and admitted he feels like a proud father to all the competitors.
He said recently: “It’s not pride for the games, it’s pride for them, military or nonmilitary, these games have somehow managed to create this amazing inspiration, to encourage anybody from any walks of life to get up and smash it and make the most of your second chance I guess.”
This is the second time the games, which sees athletes from 14 countries compete over four days, has taken place after its debut in London in 2014.
