It was a clash of the famous handsome faces in Toronto yesterday as Prince Harry met Canada's Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, in a photocall made to enjoy. But behind the smiles was a serious message as the men came together to officially announce the third Invictus Games.

We already knew that Invictus 3 will take place in Canada but the official launch had plenty of surprises for us as well. Before that, Harry held a meeting with Justin Trudeau and the usually talkative prince was reduced to silence as the Prime Minister of Canada praised the work and commitment he has put into making Invictus a major sporting event.

The official launch took place at the Royal York Hotel. In his speech, Harry said that ''on home soil as Canada celebrates its 150 anniversary your support will create a life changing atmosphere for competitors and spectators''.

Harry met some of the athletes who will be representing Canada at Invictus 2016 which starts in just a few days time in Orlando, Florida and wished Team Canada luck as they head to the event.

The ties disappeared as the prince and prime minister appeared at the Ryerson Mattamy Athletic Centre where Harry confirmed that sledge hockey will be a new sport for Invictus Toronto, saying 'It's Canada - everything happens on ice'.  The ceremonial puck drop got the sporting action under way for the afternoon and Harry was back to his best, laughing and joking his way round the stadium.

There was time for a walkabout to say hello to plenty of wellwishers in Toronto who wanted to see Harry - the turnout was pretty impressive all round.

Invictus Toronto is officially launched and Prince Harry is now heading to Florida to see the second part of the Games he helped form come to life. Invictus is under way again.
