Prince Harry Plays Polo
Prince Harry of Great Britain made an overseas journey to New York this past weekend to visit Ground Zero and the World Trade Center's English memorial gardens, in addition to a trip at a school in Harlem. He played a polo match, on Governor's Island, sponsored by Veuve Cliquot and their CEO Mark Cornell with hosts Cornelia Guest, Ivanka Trump, and Jared Kushner. Prince Harry's chief competitor was Nacho Figueras ,the Argentinian star,who is also the face of Ralph Lauren's Polo Black cologne. The money from the match will go to Sentebale, a charity that helps African orphans and children with HIV/Aids. The prince was working on this mission with Lesotho Prince Seeiso. Let's hope the champagne, big hats, and charity contributed to a nice afternoon. Ascot look out.
