The royal will apparently praise the contestants’ ‘steadfast spirit and impressive journey of recovery’.
It comes after Harry and Meghan sat together in a love seat in the garden of their Montecito home earlier this month to publicly congratulate the winners of their new grant for safer technology.
Other famous figures due to appear at the closing ceremony include Frank-Walter Steinmeier, the German President who hosted the King and Queen in March this year.
Pop star Rita Ora will perform at the event at the Merkur Spiel-Arena. The singer said, “The Invictus Games are a very special sporting event, and the competitors are an inspiration in perseverance and willpower for all of us.”
Prince Harry has claimed this year’s event will be “the best ever”, although he revealed he was both “excited” and “nervous” for the tournament.
Harry and Meghan made their very first public appearance together at the 2017 games which took place in Toronto.

News of the couple’s upcoming public appearance in September comes after Harry and his friend Nacho Figueras said they missed their wife “a lot” during a recent visit to Japan and a polo match in Singapore.
Meanwhile, Meghan was spotted wearing a $4 stress patch that provides ‘resonance and frequencies’ for calm.
Harry walked away from Meghan on a tour to publicize the charity Sentebale which he founded to help young people in southern Africa.
He threw himself into a polo match in Singapore in a match that ended in a 7-7 draw in the Sentebale ISPS Handa Polo Cup.
