Prince Harry praised for his superstar play in US charity polo tournament

Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex, has been labelled a 'superstar' after his horseback heroics at an annual charity polo tournament in Colorado, USA.

Harry was competing on a thundery day at a fundraiser for his charity Sentebale, retaining the ISPS Handa Polo Cup.

He and his team won the trophy last year too, each member receiving individual prizes and then a team award given over by All Blacks rugby hero Dan Carter.

The charity aims to raise cash and awareness for young people from South Africa. Meghan Markle was not in attendance.

He played alongside his longtime pal, the Argentine polo player Nacho Figueras on the Sentebale Team.

A commentator on the match said: “He went coast to coast, like buttered toast,” and labelled the prince's hatrick a “superstar” play.

The duke bagged three in the first game and scored again in his second.

After the excitement, Figueras described his royal bud as “noble” and “rock solid”.

Speaking to the PA news agency, he said: “Being able to be here playing a sport that we love and that we share together as friends and teammates, while supporting a great cause like Sentebale, it’s a great thing.

“We’ve been friends for quite a long time now… he’s been rock solid from day one.

“I like everything about him. He is noble, he is a good friend (and) he’s a very good polo player.

“He’s a competitive person… he likes to win.”

Harry and co won their first game against US Polo Assn 4-2, before going on to beat Royal Salute 3-2 in the second.

In 2006 Harry and Prince Seeiso of Lesotho set up Sentebale, with the annual Polo tournament being held at the Aspen Valley Polo Club.

Before the tournament, Harry said: “Sixteen years ago, Prince Seeiso and I founded Sentebale in honour of our mothers’ work in HIV, and named after my mum’s favourite flower, the ‘forget-me-not’ in Sesotho, representing our commitment to always remembering and advocating for those in need.

“We are all proud of the support we are able to give the young people of Lesotho and Botswana to feel empowered, healthy, resilient, and able to thrive.

“The funds raised this year will be invested in these communities at a critical time, as inequalities have been exacerbated by the pandemic.

“We are enormously grateful to our partners and supporters here today, especially our long-standing title sponsor, ISPS Handa, for making the day possible.”
