In case you missed it, Prince Harry, 39, and his wife, Meghan Markle, 42, recently visited Canada to attend the Invictus Games’ One Year to Go event. And according to the royal couple, who sat down with People and shared exclusive deets about their latest adventure, this trip was just what they needed. 

While chatting with the publication, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex shared that they thoroughly enjoyed their trip to Canada. “We loved being back in Canada, a place so meaningful to both of us. It was an honor to be welcomed by the Four Host First Nations, as we marked One Year To Go together with Invictus coaches, competitors and families,” the couple told People.

They added, “It filled our hearts to once again be surrounded by Canadian people, food and culture. We felt the Invictus spirit and excitement throughout Whistler and Vancouver, and are so grateful to all our hosts for organizing such a memorable visit. We’re counting down the days until we return!”

Prince Harry and Markle also shared a never-before-seen snap with the outlet, which was taken during the One Year to Go Dinner at the Vancouver Convention Centre on Friday, February 16. 

In the exclusive photo (see below), the couple were all smiles at the evening gala. The royal spare looked quite dapper in a dark-colored suit. Meanwhile, the Suits alum was as stunning as ever in a Greta Constantine olive green dress.  

At one point during the event, Harry took center stage to address the crowd with a heartfelt speech. He thanked the audience for their “commitment to making Invictus Games Vancouver Whistler 2025 possible.”

The royal continued, “When I am with the Invictus community surrounded by so many brave men and women who have served their countries with distinction, I feel humbled and at home.”

Sounds like a memorable trip, you two.
