Prince Harry to Visit Greenwich

    Prince Harry arrives at the Woman's Own Children of Courage Awards 2008 at Wesminster Abbey on Dec. 10, 2008, in London.

    When Britain's Prince Harry returns to the United States in May, he will end his tour in Connecticut, where he will play in a charity polo match. 

    The 28-year-old royal prince’s U.S. tour will end with the Sentebale Royal Salute Polo Cup at Greenwich Polo Club, where he will lead the Sentebale Land Rover team. This is the first time the charity match will happen in Greenwich.

    Sentebale means forget me now and Prince Harry and Prince Seeiso of Lesotho founded the organization, which helps children in the small African country of Lesotho.

    “Sentebale’s annual polo fundraising event has gone from strength to strength over the years. We are delighted to be working with our title sponsor Royal Salute once again and are most grateful to Peter Brant for hosting us at his Greenwich Polo Club. We hope to raise even more money this year from the event enabling us to help many more children,” Cathy Ferrier, CEO, Sentebale, said in a statement.

    Peter Brant, the husband of supermodel Stephanie Seymour, is the founder of the Greenwich Polo Club.

    The Prince’s U.S. trip will be from May 9-15, the Associated Press reports.

    The polo match is scheduled for May 15.

    Harry, who is third in line to the throne, made headlines on another U.S. visit, when he was caught frolicking in the nude after what was alleged to have been a game of strip billiards in his Las Vegas hotel room.

    Royal Salute is also partnering with Greenwich Polo Club on the Royal Salute Jubilee Cup, which will be hosted this year in September.
