Prince Edward congratulated Commonwealth Games participants on their upcoming sporting achievements on Thursday. In a message on the British royal family’s Instagram account, the Duke of Wessex wrote Thursday that everyone involved in the 11-day sporting event will enjoy it.
“The stage is set and the show is about to begin,” writes Edward, who is associated with the event as a co-host. “To everyone involved in the production, whether it’s behind the scenes or front of house, thank you, good luck and enjoy. I know in all your preparations that you want to make Birmingham 2022 an exciting and unforgettable experience.
Queen Elizabeth’s youngest son, who will regularly appear at the sporting event due to his role, hopes that those involved will act as inspiration with their participation. “I wish the best of luck to those who really have to take the stage, artists and contestants, bring out the best in themselves and inspire the next generation. Whatever your role or involvement, I hope you have the experience of a lifetime and enjoy every moment.”
Hosted in Birmingham, the Commonwealth Games begin on Thursday evening and will be England’s biggest sporting event since the London Olympics a decade ago. Queen Elizabeth will not attend due to her ill health.
