Prince Harry's team triumphed in a polo game for charity Saturday in New York and was sprayed with champagne, some of which the prince is spitting out at Nacho Figueras, another polo player.
NEW YORK — Prince Harry reminded New Yorkers on Saturday how much his mother had loved their city, and then he climbed onto a pony for a game of polo to raise money for impoverished children in Africa.
"You see this out in the Hamptons, but not so much in the city," said Vincent Hodgins of Manhattan, who brought his two sons to watch Harry, 24, play on Governors Island in New York Harbor.
The Veuve Clicquot Manhattan Polo Classic was a fundraiser for Sentebale, the charity that Harry set up with Prince Seeiso of Lesotho.
"Prince Seeiso and I both lost our mothers when we were very young," Harry said before the match. "We set up Sentebale in their memory, and because my mother loved this city, it makes this occasion all the more poignant for me."
His team, named after the charity, defeated the Black Watch team 6-5.
