Prince Harry (38) saddled the horse for a good cause in Singapore. King Charles III's son (74) took part in the Sentebale ISPS Handa Polo Cup, a charity tournament for the Sentebale charity founded by Harry, on Saturday afternoon. The royal founded this in 2006 together with Prince Seeio of Lesotho (57) to help children and young people affected by poverty, inequality and HIV in southern Africa.
The first polo tournament took place in Barbados in 2010 and has raised around 14 million US dollars (around 15 million euros) for the charity to date. "The annual Polo Cup is critical to Sentebale's essential work to ensure children and young people are healthy, resilient and thriving," Prince Harry said on the organization's website. The funds collected in 2023 are to flow into a "Clubs and Camps" program with which Sentebale supports young people.
With his team, Harry competed against his longtime friend Nacho Figueras (46) and his team. "He's very competitive," Figueras said, according to People magazine. "He plays very well, he rides very well - it's an honor to be his teammate."
