Prince Harry began the day at the Walking With The Wounded training house in Canada Street, which helps ex-servicemen and women transition back into civilian life.

Prince Harry has supported the charity since it was formed, taking part in a trek to the North Pole in 2011 and South Pole in 2013.

After meeting with those who have benefited from Sherpa House, Prince Harry joined a roundtable discussion on how the city can provide mental health support for ex-service personnel.

Prince Harry then visited the NHS Manchester Resilience Hub, which has been providing mental health services for people affected by the Manchester Arena Attack, that took place on 22 May 2017.

The Hub is based in Manchester but is for everyone who was affected, wherever you may live.

Later, Prince Harry dropped in on a Coach Core training session at Manchester City Football Club.

The programme was launched in Manchester in January, but was originally created by The Royal Foundation in 2012 to create inspirational coaches in communities where there has been little access to professional coaching before.

Prince Harry ended his visit to Manchester with a reception for England’s Rugby Football League Squad. Prince Harry, who is newly Patron of Rugby Football League, met with players and coaches ahead of the 2017 Rugby League World Cup squad announcement in October.
