Mr. Gulay said the Duke had been given doses of tequila, but declined, suggesting instead that it be given to other people in the inn.

He said Harry stayed in the beer garden at the pub for 90 minutes before eating elsewhere.

Mr. Gulay said he did not send a bill to Harry’s table.

“I said, You know what?” This tape is mine. I am honored to be here.”

“They offered to pay but I said I’m really glad you were here, and the Invictus Games have been really good for the pub this week,” he said.

Mr. Gulay added that Harry was “a very nice man”.

The closing ceremony of the Invictus Games will take place in The Hague on Friday evening.
