What a great week for Harry and Meghan…

This must certainly be a week to remember for Prince Harry and his wife Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex. They started their tour to Australia, opened the Invictus Games on the 20th October and also announced to the world that they are expecting their first child in the spring of 2019.

The Invictus Games is taking part in Sydney between the 20th and 27th October 2018. On their website it states:

The Invictus Games use the power of sport to inspire recovery, support rehabilitation and generate a wider understanding and respect for wounded, injured and sick Servicemen and women.

The Sydney event is the 4th Invictus Games to take place and was opened by Prince Harry at the iconic location of Sydney Harbour and the Opera House. The games will host over 500 competitors and features 11 different sports. At the closing ceremony of the 2017 games in Toronto, Prince Harry challenged everyone to do something to effect change in lives or in communities. He certainly has inspired so many people and the Invictus Games must surely be one of his greatest achievements.

Prince Harry just seems to have a natural way with people be it young or old, he breaks barriers with people and there are often stories where people say he stayed and chatted rather than keep to strict time protocol.

If only more of us could spare a few seconds to chat and to do something positive. Here at Banana Crumble we are trying to spread the Good News and to try and inspire others to achieve their full potential and focus on the positive rather than the negative.

The show must go on!

Flights get delayed and cancelled all of the time and for most of us it is an inconvenience. When you are a music star and thousands of people have paid to be at one of your concerts a flight cancellation must be a bigger headache for you than most.

This is just what happened to Sia’s flight from Melbourne to Sydney.  The flight was cancelled due to severe weather so Sia and her entourage decided to drive the 13 hour trip to her next concert at the Allianz Stadium in Sydney.

“I may be five minutes late,” the singer tweeted on 2 December. “We couldn’t catch a plane due to weather, so drove thirteen hours then blew a tire which has given me crazy diarrhoea. Bear with me guys. I love you.”

She later tweeted: “Four minutes from venue. Fully dressed. Ready to go. Bear with me. Massive apologies.”

Although the weather in Sydney was still terrible and the crowd were absolutely soaked, they were really grateful that the singer had gone to all the effort to get there and posted on twitter comments to reflect their gratitude.

 Don‘t Worry Queen, we would wait the whole lifetime for you

The star’s Sydney shows came towards the end of her “Nostalgic For The Present tour”, which has already played at 23 locations in the United States. For the performance, Sia donned her trademark black and blonde wig, shielding her eyes from the audience as she performed hits including Diamonds and Chandelier. Sia was joined on the stage by Dance Moms star Maddie Ziegler, who has been working as a back-up dancer on the tour.
