For those hoping to spot Prince Harry in Toronto tomorrow in advance of next year's Invictus Games, keep an eye out for Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

The pair will be meeting at the Fairmont Royal York Hotel for a private chat at 9:45 a.m. Monday.

But they'll be joined publicly by Premier Kathleen Wynne, Toronto Mayor John Tory and 27 sledge hockey players at 10:30 a.m. to officially launch the games, which will be held in the city in September 2017. The Invictus Games feature adaptive sports competitions for wounded and injured soldiers and veterans.  

The launch will be a media event so expect to see plenty of photos — and perhaps a selfie or two — surface on social media soon afterward. 

Trudeau and His Royal Highness are set to spend much of the day together, heading to an ice sledge hockey event in the afternoon.
