Kensington Palace has released more information about Prince Harry's visit to Toronto on Monday (May 2). The royal will attend three engagements while in Canada before jetting off to Orlando to celebrate the 2016 Invictus Games competition.
Torontonians will get their first glimpse of the 31-year-old during a morning press conference at the Royal York Hotel. It is there that the royal will officially kick off the countdown to the 2017 Invictus Games, which will take over the city next September. Harry is expected to make some remarks during the launch ceremony before meeting with athletes and supporters.
From there, the Queen's grandson will drop by Ryerson's Mattamy Athletic Centre to watch a game of sledge hockey. It will be an exciting and enlightening moment for Harry, who will be introduced to the sport for the first time. Prior to the match he will meet with Canada's national team before participating in the ceremonial puck drop at centre ice.
Prince Harry will finish up his day in Toronto at the office of the Lieutenant Governor of Ontario, the Hon. Elizabeth Dowdeswell. From there he will head to Florida to participate in a charity polo match ahead of the start of the Invictus Games on May 5.

In April, Harry made the exciting announcement that Canada secured hosting duties in 2017. "Today, I am absolutely delighted to announce that the Invictus legacy will continue when Toronto hosts the third Invictus Games in September 2017," he said in a video posted on the palace's official Twitter account.
