Prince Harry is to take part in a German version of ‘Match of the Day’ to help promote the Invictus Games.
He will be a guest on a late-night TV show which usually discuss and analyses the afternoon’s football in the German league, known as the Bundesliga.
But rather than talking about the latest results involving Harry Kane’s new team Bayern Munich he will be discussing the Invictus Games which are being held in the city of Dusseldorf.
The Prince will be joined by the German defence minister Boris Pistorius for the live chat on Saturday night on the sport studio show. Three competitors from the games will also take part.
Harry is expected to fly by helicopter from to the ZDF studios in Mainz after the opening ceremony of the Invictus Games.

A year ago, when he an Meghan visited the city they were mobbed by enthusiastic fans who took selfies with the couple.
The adulation was before the publication of his controversial autobiography ’Spare’ where he took swipes at other members of the Royal family.
The launch of a documentary series called ‘Heart of Invictus’ which was filmed during last year’s games in The Hague, Netherlands, also contained barbed comments at his family.
Harry claimed he lacked any support for his mental health issues stemming from his time in Afghanistan and the death of his mother, Princess Diana.
