    Wen Qi was arrested and charged with trespassing at Conyers Farm in Greenwich. Police said Qi was there, uninvited, during a Prince Harry event.

    Greenwich police arrested a Canadian woman accused of trespassing at Conyers Farm in Greenwich on Wednesday during an event that Prince Harry was attending at the polo grounds.

    Prince Harry was there to raise money for his charity Sentebale at the Greenwich Polo Club, located on Conyers Farm, when police detained Wen Qi, 36, of Toronto, Canada, on the grounds around 2 p.m. on Wednesday, according to a news release from police.

    Security was tight for the invitation-only event. Proper identification and credentials were required to gain access and bomb-sniffing dogs were brought in for added security.

    Police said Qi matched an individual on the watch list for potential trespassers at the event and is accused of trespassing on private property, trying to get into the event.

    Invited guests included millionaire Peter Brant, supermodel Stephanie Seymour, fashion designer Jason Wu and many other members of the fashion community who all made donation of at least $5,000.   

    Qi was charged with third-degree criminal trespass ad and was unable to post $1,000 bond.

    She is due in court on May 22 in Stamford Superior Court.
