Prince Harry appoints his friend to the charity’s board
Prince Harry has appointed an army veteran to the board of his charity.
Former Strictly Come Dancing contestant JJ Chalmers was seriously injured in a bomb blast in Afghanistan in 2011 while serving as a Royal Marine.
According to express.co.uk, he previously said Harry had provided him with “one of the main catalysts” for his recovery.
The publication reported that Harry had made Chalmers a trustee of the Invictus Games Foundation.
He said he himself was a former participant in the Invictus Games, a sporting event for injured, injured and sick service personnel which was set up by Prince Harry, and was a gold medalist.
According to express.co.uk, Chalmers and Harry became friends after meeting at a rehabilitation triathlon in 2014, and he was invited to the royal wedding in 2018.
He said he will “be forever grateful” to the Duke of Sussex for encouraging him to take part in the Invictus Games.
