Harry was attending the True Patriot Love Symposium, which is an annual meeting drawing in non-profit organisations and businesses to see how military veterans can be helped.

Earlier it was announced by Kensington Palace that Harry is to make his first official visit to Denmark next month at the request of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

By the time you're reading this, Prince Harry will probably already be here. Prince Harry arrived in Toronto Friday morning ahead of the launch Saturday of his Invictus Games, the "Paralympic-style sporting event he founded for wounded for wounded service members".

There is speculation the Prince will be joined at some point during his nine-day visit to Canada for the games, by his USA actress girlfriend Meghan Markle, who lives and works in Toronto. Introducing the 2016 games, she welcomed the prince in her speech and thanked him "for his outstanding leadership and for bringing the Invictus Games here to Orlando", before saying: "He is truly our Prince Charming".

She added, "In just two short years, the Invictus Games have allowed thousands of injured and wounded servicemen and women from many different countries to participate in adaptive sports competitions - something that should be lauded and supported worldwide".

Prince Harry's 36-year-old girlfriend Meghan Markle, the USA actress who appears in the legal drama TV series Suits, is also believed to be in Toronto and is expected to attend the Games at some point in an official or unofficial capacity. "We're in love. I'm sure there will be a time when we will have to come forward and present ourselves and have stories to tell, but I hope what people will understand is that this is our time".

"His Royal Highness will also attend a reception hosted by Her Majesty's Ambassador to Denmark".

Tomorrow the Prince will hold bilateral meetings with US First Lady Melania Trump, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and outgoing Canadian Governor General David Johnston.
