Will Meghan Markle Join Prince Harry at the Invictus Games?
All eyes will be on Prince Harry expectantly as Toronto’s Paralympic-style Invictus Games kick off Saturday night: Will his love interest Meghan Markle be at his side, marking the first time the two appear as a couple at a royal event? The actress is expected to join the prince to take in the opening ceremonies, per several news outlets.
Markle and the ginger prince, 33, have been seen and photographed together at informal events. The 36-year-old “Suits” actress currently makes Toronto her home. She opened up to Vanity Fair in its October issue about her relationship with Harry. “We’re in love,” she said. “We’re happy. Personally, I love a great love story.”
The younger Prince of Wales has had a busy agenda in Toronto Friday and Saturday, touring a Canadian mental health facility and attending a symposium on veteran’s issues, as well as meeting U.S. First Lady Melania Trump and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
The trip to Toronto is the first lady’s first solo trip abroad. She met the prince to talk about the Invictus Games. Dressed in a navy suit with a maroon tie, Harry shook Trump’s hand and thanked her for joining him. The two chatted briefly while reporters snapped their picture. Trump had donned a black-and-white power suit for the event.
Trump told the prince she had just arrived on a flight from Washington. Harry commented on how busy she has been. “Yes, very busy,” was her response, before inserting a compliment: “You’re doing a fantastic job.”
Prince Harry also met with Trudeau Saturday. The two sat down for a conversation at a table in front of two Canadian flags.
The Invictus Games are made up of 550 competitors from 17 nations competing in 12 sports. The formal kickoff is set for Saturday evening with celebrity performances from the likes of Sarah McLachlan, Alessia Cara and the Tenors. A “parade of nations” is also set to take place.
