Toronto, along with the rest of the southern part of the province, is currently under a heat warning for the next two days, with maximum humidex values forecast to approach 40 on both Saturday and Sunday. I feel for the athletics and wheelchair tennis athletes who'll be competing in that on Sunday. I'm assuming the cars in the JLR driving challenge will have AC.

I also note that they were forced to move the cycling to its backup site at High Park from the Islands.

It does seem like Mother Nature is throwing her own challenges at the competitors over the weekend with unusually high heat for this time of year.

I'm sure that they'll take everything into consideration and make sure that the athletes keep hydrated and watch for over exertion and sunstroke. I don't think though that *anything* could really damper these athletes spirit now as the opening ceremony is so close at hand.

Downloaded the ESPN App to watch the opening ceremony at 7pm. You can watch the games on the app too.

This is not only funny, but it shows Harry is so down to earth.

I love Harry. He’s so comfortable and affable. How funny for that guy to wake up to Harry’s face!

A very nice move and as there were no press close to him, that sort of deflates the cynics argument that "it was probably only for the cameras".

The waking the sleeping guy was hilarious. Would have been quite the shock to wake up to Prince Harry's face

Again seeing what love about Harry. He is so good with people. I love watching his tours (his dad's too).

Everyone all set to watch the opening ceremonies? Going to have snacks and drinks all set and ready and watch it on my monitor here. If you're looking for a place to view it online, I'll be watching it on CTV.

Thanks for the link. It can also be viewed on the ESPN App too.

I see the DM has described it as Melania's first solo overseas visit.

And here I had no idea that Toronto was overseas; I thought it was on the same continent as the US! I'd better brush up on geography.

Well... we know how the Fail loves to exaggerate. Perhaps getting to Toronto, Melania had to fly over the Great Lakes. With exaggeration, the Fail could have made those lakes be seas. Hence overseas.

If the Fail truly means that Canada is overseas from the US, then I spent a lot of my young adulthood going overseas (or would it be underseas) from Detroit through the tunnel over to Windsor, Ontario.

Y'know, its really hard to tell who has having the better time. Harry or little Daimy driving the car. Harry just has a way of becoming totally immersed in whatever it is he's doing. Not one at all for sedateness as he waves a stuffed bear (I think its a bear) when driving around with an adult.

That's our Harry!

Whatever it is that he has shines thru even in print. So glad to see him as he is now from how it was in his 20's.

That is one of the cutest things I've ever seen! Harry is having the best time here, he's just great and the driver is having a wonderful time too, completely at ease.

He sure has a wonderful rapport with children.

Apart from being a wonderful personal trait in itself, (Which also says a lot about a person's character. - You can't fool small children and dogs IMO.) it's worth gold PR-wise! Both for Harry himself, but certainly also for the BRF and whatever event he attends.
