Missy Franklin joins Prince Harry and US Paralympian Lieutenant Brad Snyder during the Opening Ceremony of the Warrior Games on Saturday afternoon (May 11) in Colorado Springs, Co.
Just the night before, the 18-year-old Olympian and the Prince attended a reception at the Sanctuary Golf Course.
“And the perfect way to end my 18th birthday!? Meeting Prince Harry! It was a honor meeting him and I had a blast as always,” Missy wrote on Instagram.
She added with a note to her fans, “Thank you SO SO MUCH for all my birthday wishes! God had blessed me with every one of you and this has by far been the best birthday ever! I’ve felt so much love and it means the world to me! God is good! Thank you for making my 18th so special!”

Jackie Evancho and Missy Franklin walk the blue carpet for Cirque du Soleil’s ‘One Night for ONE DROP’ held at Hyde Bellagio on Friday night (March 22) in Las Vegas.
The gala united all seven Cirque du Soleil shows on the Las Vegas strip to raise awareness of World Water Day. The production featured 237 Cirque du Soleil artists and guest performers and was filmed by 12 cameras to create a very exciting 90-minute special.
ONE DROP, a nonprofit organization, works to secure water access by implementing integrated and unique water projects around the world and to reverse the growing water crisis by raising awareness for water-related issues. Since its inception in 2007, ONE DROP has worked to provide access to clean, safe water for more than 300,000 people.
“Many thanks to everyone who sent prayers my way. They made all the difference in how my evening went,” Jackie tweeted after her performance. She was sick with the flu that night!
In tonight’s all-new episode “Will the Circle Be Unbroken?” Spencer (Troian Bellisario) hasn’t been herself lately, but has she had enough to just disappear? Could “A” have done something to her?
These are all questions that Aria (Lucy Hale), Emily (Mitchell) and Hanna (Ashley Benson) are asking themselves when Spencer goes missing. But when it turns out even her family doesn’t know where Spencer has gone to, the girls frantically search for answers hoping their worst fears aren’t true. But where Spencer does turn up at, maybe she doesn’t want to be found.
“Will the Circle Be Unbroken?” airs TONIGHT @ 8PM ET/PT on ABC Family. 25+ pics inside…
Missy Franklin dolls up in head to toe gold as she arrives at the 2012 Golden Goggle Awards held at the Marriott Marquis Times Square on Monday night (November 19) in New York City.
The 17-year-old Olympic swimmer took home the Female Athlete of the Year honors, and Top Relay Performance with teammates Rebecca Soni, Dana Vollmer and Allison Schmitt for their 4×100 medley gold medal in world-record time.
“If I had anyone who swims high school come up to me and tell me they don’t want me to swim, I would absolutely not swim,” Missy shared about joining her high school swim team.
She continued, “But everyone who I’ve talked to has been so supportive of it. So it’s so hard when I have so many people that are really wanting me to do it and so supportive, and I have other people who are saying it’s not fair. ‘Why would you do this to other girls?’ And I feel so bad thinking that they would think that.”
