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 was also spotted laughing and enjoying the company of Hollyoaks actress Beth Herlihy.

The couple are later expected to attend the swimming finals at 5pm and wheelchair basketball finals at 7pm UK time.

Meg landed in the German city last 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 last night at the evening reception 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.
