Prince Harry is all smiles while chatting with athletes at the 2016 Invictus Games held at ESPN Wide World of Sports on Friday (May 7) in Orlando, Fla.

The 31-year-old royal got a tour of the venue and met with members of the British team that were participating in the sporting event for wounded, injured and sick servicemen and women.

Harry also met with children from the charity Give Kids the World Village and with an Air Force veteran, who brought his Golden Retriever Jasmine that can sense when he is about to have a PTSD attack.

“The prince has helped change the view of veterans like me who’ve got invisible injuries. These guys have given me such inspiration and I’d like to try out for next year’s games. To have the prince backing us on it gives the world visibility to it,” the veteran told People.

At the event, Harry participated in the final round of the Jaguar Land Rover Driving Challenge and awarded the first gold medal for the games to France.
