Harry, who created the Invictus Games for wounded veterans, has had a busy few days since arriving in Canada on Friday, meeting with competitors and medical experts who are working to find a solution for soldiers suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

He visisted The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health on Saturday where he participated in a round table discussion about a potential cure for PTSD.

The Daily Mail reports that after being told one of the centre’s main approaches is prevention, Harry told doctors: “It seems we suffer from a culture where a pill will fix everything. There has to be a better way than just giving out anti-depressants.

“There were 65million given out in one year in the UK alone. That’s why I look to you guys in this room. Everyone is uniquely wired is what I keep saying. There is no one silver bullet, no one cure for everyone.”

The Games officially kick off on Sunday in Toronto and are expected to be as action-packed as previous years with events in swimming, running, basketball and more.

While the inspiring competition is always a big event for Harry, this year could be extra special, with reports he will be joined by his girlfriend Meghan Markle for their first official public appearance.
