Prince Harry made a surprise stop at Toronto’s WE Day event at the Air Canada Centre while in the city for the Invictus Games.
The royal headed downtown to talk to 10,000 screaming fans, urging them to work together and to help build a brighter future.
“The thousands of you gathered here are proof that today’s generation of young people is the most connected, most energized and most confident the plant has ever known,” Harry told the audience. “We are stronger when we work together.”
“In today’s world, too many people feel cynical and apathetic. I get that the challenges we face sometimes seem complex and even scary, especially when we don’t know who to turn to for answers,” Prince Harry continued. “I know that while this generation of young people wants to make our world a better place, you often struggle to get your voices heard. I know what you, more than any previous generation, care deeply about the health and sustainability of the planet you’re going to inherit.”
Rick Hansen, Canada’s Man in Motion, also stopped by to introduce the Royal.
Kelly Clarkson, Vanessa Hudgens and Canada’s own Jacob Tremblay were in the 6ix for the event.
Clarkson, who nabbed the hosting gig of WE Day admits she’s a little “terrified,” “I’m little nervous to host, like I’m going to have to yell,” the “American Idol” alum joked to ET Canada‘s Carlos Bustamante. “I love singing and I don’t get nervous singing but for some reason, talking makes me nervous.”
Tremblay told us he loves coming back to the stage, “Everyone is so positive about everyone, so I think that’s my favourite part.”
