Prince Harry visits with Canadian Olympic athletes
August 3, 2012
Germany may have won the gold in the men's eight rowing race, but Canada's silver medal team got the star treatment, as well. In fact, on Thursday, Canada House got a very special visitor - Prince Harry stopped by to congratulate the Olympic team, according to CBC News. The rowing team made up a small portion of the 123 people who happened to be at the Trafalgar Square building, which temporarily serves as a meeting place for Olympic officials and athletes.
Malcolm Howard was one of the first to spot the royal visitor, and approached him warmly.
"Your Royal Highness, it's an honor to meet you," he said to the Prince, according to the National Post.
Howard then handed Prince Harry his silver medal. "Check it out. It's pretty heavy, eh?"
Prince Harry conversed with many athletes and others at Canada House. He was even there, watching along with others as the Canadian women's crew team placed second behind the U.S. in the women's eight.
