He hasn’t forgotten about us, no sir! Prince Harry surprised the athletes at Canada’s Olympic House with a visit. He talked to our winning athletes and even got his own jersey!
Wearing a blue suit, Harry was immediately greeted by Canadian rower Malcolm Howard of the silver-medal-winning men’s eight team.
“Your Royal Highness, it’s an honour to meet you,” he said with a smile before shaking the prince’s hand.
Harry was surrounded by 123 guests in the building and chit-chatted with several athletes as well as their family members. The prince even watched Canada win another silver medal in women’s rowing at the Canuck residence.
Canadian slalom kayaker Michael Taylor asked the young royal what was the best party hot spot in London, to which Harry answered:
“I don’t go out anymore. I’m too old, I’m too old.”
Ladies and gents, he’s 27 years old; he’s apparently too old now.
As a token of gratitude, Prince Harry was presented with his very own Canadian team jacket from Canadian Olympic Committee president Marcel Aubut.
Prince Harry should visit Canada more often. Just think of all the swag he’d walk away with, along with the litres of maple syrup…
