Prince Harry is known both by the British and Canadian community as an international treasure. A reformed party boy, with a couple years of military service under his belt, and a truly exceptional Toronto celebrity, Meghan Markle, on his arm.
What with a girlfriend filming in Toronto a good chunk out of the year, one would expect that Harry be a frequent flier across the pond, however that's not the reason you'll be seeing the prince in the 416.
Prince Harry is the proud creator of the Invictus Games - an international sporting event dedicated to injured active duty and veteran service members.
"The Invictus Games 2017 will feature a dozen adaptive sports, including archery, athletics, indoor rowing, powerlifting, cycling, sitting volleyball, swimming, wheelchair basketball, wheelchair rugby and wheelchair tennis. Also, new to the sports line up will be the addition of golf," states Invictus officials.
This year, in 2017, The Invictus Games will take place in Toronto - which means Prince Harry will most definitely be around to do publicity and work on the games in general.
In celebration of our 150th anniversary, Prince Harry has selected Toronto as the rightful host of the Invictus Games. The games will take place from September 23-30th. Click here for more details and stay tuned for details about celebrity performances and more Prince Harry news!

The long-awaited Justin Bieber world tour has been pushed back yet again. The Justice World Tour is now expected to kick off on February 18, 2022, in San Diego and it now includes the addition of seven new shows across North America.
One Canadian location was added at Montreal's Bell Centre on March 29, 2022, and Ontarians can expect to see the Biebs in Toronto and Ottawa on March 25 and March 28, respectively.
Many fans took to Twitter and Instagram to share their reactions, which range from total hype to absolute question.
Some have questions regarding what will happen to their tickets, and whether or not the tour is the same as the former 2021 tour.
Evenko said in a press release that tickets will be honoured for everyone who already paid for the 2021 tour, and to expect to receive an email from their ticket providers with all appropriate updates and options if they're unable to make the changed date.
While tropical getaways may not be the first thing that comes to mind when thinking of Canada, B.C.'s beaches are something that can actually fit the bill. There's no need to hop on a plane when there are plenty of beach-y options spread across our country's west coast.
From downtown Vancouver to the islands, there are plenty of places to escape to for a weekend getaway or to spend a hot summer day lazing out in the sand. You're going to want to put these beauties on your bucket list.
Why You Need To Go: It's one of the many islands in the Strait of Georgia, which boasts to have some of the warmest warmer north of Mexico. It's a bit of a trek from Vancouver (we're talking over 140 kilometres away), but the island offers several different accommodations that would complete the experience of a tropical getaway – just in Canada's great backyard.
Why You Need To Go: This beach is known as "Little Hawaii" for a reason– its clear blue waters and sandy beaches will make you feel like you're in Honolulu instead of on Hornby Island. If you come by around the springtime you'll get to see wildflowers framing the hills around the beach.
Why You Need To Go: There are three different sections to the Spanish Banks and when the tides are low the shore can stretch out to one kilometre long, giving you tons of plenty of room to spread out your towel and get your tan on. Aside from the sandy shores, this beach also offers outdoor volleyball courts and off-leash dog parks.
Why You Need To Go: Tofino is known for its surf-style beaches, and Chesterman Beach is one of the places to go and do that. If you head towards the north part of the beach where the tide pools are, you could potentially see some interesting marine life like sea stars and anemones.
Why You Need To Go: With a pier that will almost remind you of the one in Santa Monica, this beach is great if you want to take a stroll on the sand. There are also a variety of nature trails you can take in the area if you want to mix in some play time with a relaxing finish at the beach.
