The Invictus Games is just days away!

Well, 100 days -but hey, we're still very excited.

To celebrate this milestone, and the announcement that closing ceremony tickets are going on sale, a new advert for the Invictus games has been shared, and it's staring none other than the Duke of Sussex himself, Prince Harry.

The fourth Invictus Games is headed down under, with this year's competition coming to Sydney, Australia. The games will commence on the 18th of October and go until the 29th.

If that doesn't get you excited, take a look at the video staring Prince Harry above.

The advert was first shared in a tweet from the official game's account along side the caption: "It is 100 days to go until the start of Invictus Sydney! To celebrate tickets to the Closing Ceremony and more sporting events have gone on sale today. Make sure you don't miss out!"

Both Harry and Meghan Markle will be coming Down Under for the games in October.

We couldn't be more excited if we tried!

Former military man Prince Harry launched the Paralympics-style event for wounded servicemen and women back in 2014 and it has since become a global attraction.

After visiting the Warrior Games in Colorado in 2013, Harry had a light-bulb moment and realised sport was the key in helping heal the ravages of war.

"Sport is what would make the difference. Sport would help these guys and girls fix their lives. I left Colorado with a determination to take this to an international audience," the royal revealed during the launch event in Sydney last year.

Bring on October!
