    The Invictus Games for wounded veterans was coming to a close Saturday with a ceremony featuring stars such as Bruce Springsteen — though some of the attention focused on Britain's Prince Harry and his girlfriend, American actress Meghan Markle.

    The prince, a veteran of service in Afghanistan, created the Paralympic-style games as a way to inspire soldiers toward recovery. About 550 competitors from 17 countries competed in 12 sports over the last week.

    Harry and Markle made their first public appearance together at the event earlier in the week. 

    At the closing ceremony, Harry sat beside the wife of Canada's prime minister in the stands while Markle sat in a luxury box with her mother. Harry later joined her in the luxury box as Springsteen performed. The 36-year-old actress known for her portrayal of a paralegal in the television show "Suits" recently told Vanity Fair they're in love.
