Nigeria: Unconquered

May 2024

Day two began with a visit to Nigeria: Unconquered’s training session, a local charitable organisation that supports wounded, injured, or sick service members, and was born from the Invictus movement.

The Duke and Duchess observed a game of sitting volleyball, one of the many sports the organisation relies on for recovery and a core sport for the Invictus Games since 2014.

Wearing his Invictus Games polo shirt, The Duke then joined in the game, eliciting cheers and excitement from the audience, while also encouraging Nigeria’s Chief of Defence Staff to play too, who joyfully jumped in. The Duchess cheered from the sidelines with guests and the wives of those playing, accepting matching dresses from a group of women who expressed their solidarity and admiration for the couple.

This event was a testament to the power of sports in uniting people, fostering recovery and celebrating the human spirit’s capacity to overcome challenges.
