Justin Trudeau Shows Prince Harry How Canadians Behave In A Hockey Rink

Posted: Updated:

Ed Sheeran stunt double Prince Harry was in Toronto Monday to start the countdown to the 2017 Invictus Games, set to take place in Toronto.

The young royal, who created the tournament in 2013 for veteran and active members of armed forces, later attended a sledge hockey match with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne and Toronto Mayor John Tory.

At the game, which took place at Ryerson University's Mattamy Athletic Centre, the prime minister successfully showed at least some composure around the prince.

But then Trudeau, a Canadian, remembered he was in a rink. With ice. And hockey.

This can't end well:

Once the two got settled at the players' bench, Trudeau just couldn't contain his excitement:

Tory couldn't hold it in either:

"Goodness, is this what all elected officials look like?" the prince thought to himself. (Getty Images)

Trudeau isn't even trying to stay cool at this point:

Oh, thank god. Trudeau's official photographer, Adam Scotti, is here to calm him down:

There you have it. Example #342,447 of how Canadians behave when hockey occurs.

Trudeau also kept the sports rivalry going between him, the prince and U.S. President Barack Obama with a video that involves push-ups and a mic drop.
