And the 2017 Invictus Games will take place in… Toronto!
Prince Harry announced the games' newest location in a video clip shared by the Kensington Palace official Twitter account on Wednesday, March 16. The games — which Harry first launched in 2014 — are an international Paralympic-style multi-sport event for wounded, injured or sick armed services personnel.
"2017 is a year steeped in rich Canadian military history, marking the anniversaries of historic battles that shaped and defined the nation," the 31-year-old royal said of the upcoming September 2017 Invictus Games. "It's also the year when Canada will commemorate its 150th anniversary of Confederation."

"I cannot think of a better way to mark this milestone than by paying tribute to the soldiers and veterans who have served their country so bravely and to support them along their journey to recovery," he added. "You really will not want to miss this."
This year's Invictus Games will take place in Orlando, Fla. in May. "There will be 500 unique stories of grit and determination on show, as each competitor takes to the track, pool or court," Harry said of the highly-anticipated event.
