He’s always had a passion for wounded servicemen and women and earlier today (April 29) Prince Harry began finding competitors for his forthcoming Invictus Games.

The crimson-haired hunk joined members of the British Armed Forces at Tedworth House in Wiltshire, England ahead of the big event to be held at the Lea Valley Athletics Centre and Olympic Park from September 10th through the 14th.

Of the hopefuls, Harry told press, “These men and women are fighters by nature. The intense physical training and competitive spirit that will be forged inside this team as they prepare to represent their country in the Invictus Games will, I hope, go some way to helping the recovery not only of those who hope to be selected here today, but also inspire others along the way.”

And Invictus Games chairman Sir Keith Mills added, “The countdown to the Invictus Games has truly begun. Now is the time for the public to really get behind these Games and show their support for those who will be the real stars — the competitors.”
