Prince takes on 'little Harry' at Invictus Games trials

Prince Harry has boxed with a two-year-old boy who shares his name as he cheered on athletes vying for a place at this year's Invictus Games.

The 32-year-old knelt down to spar with Harry Phillips, two, at the UK team trials for the games at the University of Bath sports training village.

Dan Phillips, 35, from Seaford near Brighton, brought son Harry to cheer him on as he tried out for a place in the shot put, discus and archery events.

"I wanted to introduce Harry to Harry," said Mr Phillips, who was medically discharged from his role as a corporal due to a spinal cord injury.

"I was absolutely chuffed to bits. We call him our Prince Harry so getting the chance to meet the real thing is amazing."

The Prince, who founded the games, joined servicemen and women competing for a place in Toronto in September.
