Prince Harry starts countdown to 2018 Sydney Invictus Games

Prince Harry has marked 500 days to the Invictus Games in Sydney, the British Royal joining Australia Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and Governor-General Sir Peter Cosgrove at Admiralty House to begin the countdown to the event for which he is Patron.

In a moment that melted the hearts of onlookers, Prince Harry even tucked Ms Dunne's blanket in and fixed up her umbrella before he continued on his walk.

Sure enough, he took time to shake hands and pose for photos - NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian even stepping in to act as royal photo taker as one fan handed over her iPhone to get the flawless shot.

Prince Harry has launched the upcoming 2018 Invictus Games by speaking of the guilt he felt after New Idea magazine published a time sensitive story that forced him to withdraw from the frontline in Afghanistan.

Terror warning shuts German rock festival on opening night
The three-day " Rock am Ring " event, held at an arena near the southern city of Nuremberg, is scheduled to run until Sunday. Veteran Australian rockers The Living End were set to take to the stage just before 11pm German time for their set.

He touched on the global terrorism threat, saying that it was important to focus on "positive" events like the Invictus Games when we live in such "challenging times". And though he was in Australia for a special occasion, that didn't stop the British royal from remembering the victims of this Saturday's horrific terror attack in London.

He revealed that, in the wake of last month's Manchester bombing, injured veterans reached out to those who'd received "life-changing injuries" in the attack to "provide advice and support".

In the pouring rain on Wednesday, the elderly woman who embraced Harry in 2015 and the young female fan who famously stole a kiss from the prince during that trip were willing to get wet to do it all again.
