The royal took to the monarchy's official Facebook page to make the announcement via video message. "I always hoped the Invictus story would continue after the London games, and after seeing so many new people benefit from their journey to Orlando this year, I definitely didn't want it to end here," he says. "So, today I'm absolutely delighted that the Invictus legacy will continue when Toronto hosts the third Invictus games in September 2017."
"2017 is a year steeped in Canadian military history, marking the anniversaries of historic battles that shaped and defined the nation. It's also the year when Canada will commemorate its 150th year of confederation," he continues. "I cannot think of a better way to mark this milestone than paying tribute to the soldiers and veterans who have served their country so bravely and to support them on their journey to recovery."
The second annual games take place in just 50 days, and will be held in Orlando, Florida. We can't wait to welcome him stateside in May!
