The Duchess of Sussex hinted that her children might be taking a trip to the next location for the Invictus Games
The Duchess of Sussex, 42, revealed that she hopes Prince Archie, 4, and Princess Lilibet, 2, will learn to ski — and with the Duke of Sussex's next Invictus Games being held in Vancouver and Whistler, Canada, in 2025, it may provide the perfect opportunity. The Invictus Games in Vancouver-Whistler will be the first to incorporate winter adaptive sports in addition to some of the core sports from previous Invictus Games, which Harry, 39, created in 2014 as an adaptive sporting competition for service personnel and veterans.
Bridget Bridge, the wife of an IG25 board member, told The Mirror: "Meghan said that she really wanted her children to learn to ski and that maybe Whistler was the ideal place. She said she didn’t ski, so we told her they must come and learn."
Prince Harry has been on the slopes since childhood. Princess Diana and King Charles took their sons skiing starting at a young age, taking winter vacations in Switzerland — sometimes with other family members like his cousins Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice.
When it comes to bringing Prince Archie and Princess Lili to the Invictus Games, Prince Harry told PEOPLE last year, "We can't wait!" — and revealed he had already introduced the competition to his son.
"I showed Archie a video of wheelchair basketball and rugby from the Invictus Games in Sydney, and he absolutely loved it," the Duke of Sussex said.
"I showed him how some were missing legs and explained that some had invisible injuries, too," he continued. "Not because he asked, but because I wanted to tell him. Kids understand so much, and to see it through his eyes was amazing because it's so unfiltered and honest."

Prince Harry's personal life has changed greatly since launching the Invictus Games in 2014, most notably becoming a husband and father.
"Being a dad certainly adds another emotional layer to it," Harry said. "When I was in the Army, I promised myself I would be out before having a wife and kids, because I couldn't imagine the heartache of being apart for so long during deployment, the risk of possibly getting injured, and the reality that my family's lives could be changed forever if that happened."
Prince Archie and Princess Lili also got a shout-out from their mom at the latest Invictus Games in Germany, which wrapped on Saturday. After Harry kicked off the sixth iteration of the sporting competition solo, Meghan made her debut at the Family & Friends party after traveling in from California.
"It is so special to be here, and I'm so sorry that I was a little late for the party. Just like so many of you, we know this is about family and friends and the community that Invictus has created, that Fischer House has created, and so I had to just spend a little bit more time getting our little ones settled home,” the Duchess of Sussex said, according to Hello!. “Getting milkshakes, doing school drop off and then I just landed a couple of hours ago. I am thrilled that the first event that I can do with Invictus is here with all of you.”
