TORONTO (AP) — Two of the world's social media superstars — Britain's Prince Harry and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau — are counting down to the 2017 Invictus Games, a sports competition for wounded, injured and sick service personnel.

Inspired by a visit to the Warrior Games in the United States, the 31-year-old royal founded the Invictus Games in 2013. Harry says Monday he's been told that Toronto's Paralympic-style competition will be the biggest and best yet. Trudeau, who met with the prince, thanked him.

The Invictus Games were first held in London in 2014 and involved more than 400 competitors from 13 countries.

The Toronto Invictus Games are set for September 2017. After his Toronto visit, Harry is heading south to Orlando, Florida, where this year's Invictus Games will be held.
