The proud royal founder of the Invictus Games has officially arrived in Toronto, to set the stage for the international multi-sport competition,  dedicated to injured active duty and veteran service members.

He was spotted on Toronto's bustling King Street this morning, as he headed into the Scotia Plaza, where he'll attend the True Patriot Love symposium before spending the afternoon with athletes training for the Games.
