The royal carpet is rolled out.
Prince Harry And Meghan Markle turned a recent hockey game into a date night, watching the Vancouver Canucks take on the San Jose Sharks on November 20. In fact, the Duke of Sussex took inspiration from his late grandmother during the outing at Rogers Arena in Vancouver.
Just like the late Queen Elizabeth II did so in 2002, the prince came out on a black carpet to toss the ceremonial puck between the captains of the opposing teams.
For the occasion, Harry stayed dapper in a black suit with a matching black sweater, while Meghan also donned an all-black outfit.
But the couple, who previously spent time in British Columbia after leaving the royal family in 2020, were not just in the Canadian province to play hockey. After all, it’s also the site of the upcoming Invictus Games. The event – a sporting event founded by Harry in 2014 for active military and wounded, ill and injured veterans – will take place in Vancouver and Whistler in 2025.
