Arabnews24 - Canada:For at least a day, Prince Harry will be Toronto’s most eligible bachelor.The people’s prince will be in town to promote his Invictus Games — a competition for injured military personnel — which will be held here in 2017.
But The Mail on Sunday is reporting that the often unlucky at love prince will have a “pretty, tall, blond sports therapist” on his arm at this year’s games in Orlando.
Harry is “so serious about her that he has told only two people — [friend] Guy Pelly and [ex-girlfriend] Chelsy Davy — her name to make sure that, if the relationship does evolve, it is away from the pressure of family and friends taking an unhelpfully keen interest in his marriage prospects.”
And why not? He’s got looks, charm and a wicked sense of humour — as witnessed by the prince enlisting the Queen to throw faux shade on the Obamas.
The wickedly funny Twitter exchange with U.S. President Barack Obama is meant to promote the games — a cause Harry is passionate about.
In the video, Harry shows the monarch a video of Barack and Michelle Obama taunting the British team.“Hey Prince Harry,” says the First Lady. “Remember when you told us to bring it at the Invictus Games?” President Obama adds: “Careful what you wish for!”But after watching the video on Harry’s cellphone, the Queen, clearly less than amused, smiles and says: “Oh, really. Please!” “Boom!” says Prince Harry. The spoof — weeks in the planning — was arranged before the Obamas had dinner with Prince Harry and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge at Kensington Palace.
After Toronto, Harry is on his way to Florida. He could barely contain his passion for the subject in an interview with an Orlando TV station. “This is an experience, it’s an emotional rollercoaster, there’s not a single point during these games that spectators will sit there feeling sorry for these guys — that is not what this is about.
“People in America and people across the world if you haven’t seen the games may think, ‘Oh, this is a bunch of wounded soldiers on a sporting field taking each other on.’ It’s completely the opposite to what it is — it’s an emotional rollercoaster.”
Meanwhile, the Royal Canadian Legion’s $500,000 donation to the games from its poppy fund has received some criticism from a number of vets. But the Legion is having none of it. “It’s money well spent, as far as I’m concerned,” Legion president Tom Eagles told Postmedia.
