Mark your calendars! Kensington Palace confirmed Prince Harry will be in Toronto on May 2.


Last month the 31-year-old prince announced he will be hosting the 3rd Invictus Games, a Paralympic-style sporting event for injured, wounded and sick service personnel, in Toronto in 2017.

The short trip in May marks the prince's first trip to the city in 25 years, but it is going to be a quick one. According to the palace, the prince is kicking off the official countdown to the 2017 games before travelling to Florida to take part in the Sentebale Royal Salute Polo Cup on May 4.


Prince Harry co-founded the Sentebale charity in 2006, along side Lesotho's Prince Seeiso. Since it's start, the charity has remained committed to supporting the needs of children affected by poverty and HIV/AIDS in Lesotho.

Following the polo match, the prince will stay in Orlando for the 2nd Invictus Games which run between May 5 through 13.


As the games' founder, Prince Harry has been very hands on all aspects of the competition. After recently returning from his trip to Nepal, the prince debuted the 110-person U.K. Invictus Orlando team in front of Buckingham Palace on Wednesday. Other countries competing in the Orlando games include Canada, Australia, Jordan, Iraq, Denmark and Afghanistan.
