‘Hot seat’ for prince
PRINCE Harry larked around with competitors and their families as he proudly launched his Invictus Games in Canada yesterday.
He spent time with sportsmen and women ahead of the opening ceremony in Toronto last night, before meeting US First Lady Melania Trump.
Harry was driven by five-yearold Daimy Gommers in a mini Land Rover and the fun-loving former soldier was also spotted clutching a toy kangaroo mascot as he toured the venues.
The prince, 33, created the Games in 2014 to showcase the achievements of injured and wounded military personnel and veterans, and has been a driving force behind the annual event. His actress girlfriend Meghan Markle was expected to join him during the lavish launch ceremony last night – their first official engagement as a couple. A source said: “The appearance has been in the planning for a long time. “Toronto is where Meghan lives for most of the year, it is where she films Suits. It is an obvious place for them to appear properly in public for the first time.” Harry is thought to have arrived in the country earlier in the week to spend time with his girlfriend.
