Prince Harry is getting well and truly involved in the action at the Invictus Games – and meeting plenty of people in the audience, too.

The Duke of Sussex was captured playfully tugging on a Canadian fan’s beard as he attended the power lifting finals.

He shook the man’s hand and lightly pulled on his beard as he walked past the clapping crowds.

This is his first appearance at the Dusseldorf Invictus Games and he seems to be really enjoying himself, greeting fans and cheering on contestants.

He also watched today’s wheelchair rugby match – one of the most popular sports at the games, the MailOnline reports.

Harry watched the UK team taking part in a basketball competition from behind the doors of an executive box.

Plus, after watching the Italy v South Korea wheelchair rugby game he made an unlikely friend – the giant rooster mascot of the French team.

Harry said he hoped to watch as many events as possible at the Merkur Spiel-Arena, as well as catching up with competitors he’d met at previous games.

His wife Meghan Markle is set to arrive in Germany in a few days and will meet a group of school children.

More than 2,000 kids from Dusseldorf and the surrounding area have been invited to the games, which celebrate disabled and wounded military veterans.

The games features more than 500 competitors from 21 countries, and it’s predicted up to 100,000 people will attend the games.
