From Town & Country

Rather than stand by the sidelines, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex took to the water to watch today's Invictus Games sailing competition.

The Duchess used the occasion wear a pair of Veja V-10 sneakers. The French shoe brand prides itself on transparency and environmental sustainability. At each stage of production, Veja ensures its high environmental standards are met-and that the workers are treated with respect.

Meghan paired the sneakers with Krewe Gravier sunglasses, and finished off the look with an official Invictus Games jacket.

The Invictus Games, founded by Prince Harry just a few years ago, give international teams of wounded servicemen and women a chance to compete in adaptive sports. As Meghan and Harry have made multiple appearances in the lead up to the Sydney edition, it seems that the Duchess wholeheartedly approves of her husband's passion project.

We've now seen six days' worth of royal events in Australia, but Meghan and Harry are about to mix it up. After exploring Australia's Fraser Island tomorrow, the Duke and Duchess are slated to jet to Fiji and Tonga before traveling back to Sydney for the Invictus Games Closing Ceremony.

While only Prince Harry delivered a speech at the Games' Opening Ceremony on Saturday, Meghan is set to speak at the Closing Ceremony after Harry. As the Duke will have more than enough opportunities to give speeches during this royal tour (think his remarks in Dubbo's Victoria Park, or his upcoming words at a Fiji State Dinner) we're more than excited to see what Meghan does with her turn in the spotlight.
