After fellow royal Mike Tindall was drafted in as an ambassador for the event, Ms Levin suggested that the competition for wounded service personnel could be preparing to ditch Harry.

Harry helped set up the games in 2014 - but Ms Levin told GB News that the sporting event has become "too royal" because of the Duke of Sussex and his wife Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex.

"I wonder if that is a way to ease Harry out, He has been very nice about Harry. But it's become too royal."

Harry founded the Invictus Games to aid the rehabilitation of injured and sick military personnel and veterans across the globe, by giving them the challenge of competing in sporting events similar to the Paralympics.

The next games will be held in Vancouver, Canada, in 2025.

A total of 550 sick, wounded and injured former and current military personnel from 21 countries took part in 10 team and individual sports in the previous edition in Dusseldorf, Germany.
