Prince Harry made a private visit to the Lympstone Commando Training Centre in Exeter Wednesday to meet with wounded soldiers.

Britain's Prince Harry met with wounded soldiers in Exeter, south west England on Wednesday. The 29-year-old royal requested a private visit to Lympstone Commando Training Centre in order to show support to the injured troops, who took part in a triathlon designed to prove there is life after a seemingly debilitating injury.

'To have Prince Harry come by and show his support really makes them feel worthy'

Around 100 troops took part in events such as cycling, swimming and static rowing, and Harry said the efforts of the soldiers was "awe-inspiring".

In between events, the royal met with competitors and learned how the sporting event has had a positive effect on their road to recovery.

Sergeant Caleb Patton, who suffered severe scars following a blast while on a training exercise in Nevada, USA, said: "It's pretty awesome to have the support of Prince Harry - as he walked by and said hi, without really looking up I said, 'How's it going?', and then realised who it was."

Colonel Willy Buhl added to the Western Morning News: "There's something special about an event like this which gives them focus and to have Prince Harry come by and show his support really makes them feel worthy."
