Prince Harry promised an American veteran he would personally thank the British hospital that saved her life. During a meeting Wednesday at Kensington Palace, he kept his word.
At the request of Sgt. Elizabeth Marks, Prince Harry delivered one of the Army medic’s Invictus gold medals to the staff of Papworth Hospital.
It was one of four medals Marks won for swimming during last month’s Invictus Games, the international Paralympic-style competition founded by Prince Harry for wounded service members.
In one of the many memorable moments from the Orlando games, Marks rushed after the prince following the award ceremony and asked him to take the medal back home with him to London.

“Once the race was over, he awarded me the medal, I think he knew I was going to hand it to him but he still was surprised that I wanted to give away my gold medal,” Marks said.
