Prince Harry reminded New Yorkers today how much his mother had loved their city, then climbed onto a pony for a rousing game of polo to raise money for impoverished children in Africa. The 24-year-old prince drew a crowd that included stars like Madonna, actresses Kate Hudson and Chloe Sevigny, and rapper LL Cool J, but also lots of ordinary New Yorkers out for a rare sight: a polo game in the city.
His team, named after the Sentebale charity he co-founded, proceeded to defeat the opposing Black Watch team 6-5. Harry assisted on the winning goal in the last seconds, drawing the biggest cheer of the afternoon. It was the second and final day of Harry's first official visit to the United States. This morning, he visited students in Harlem. "Who's the best pupil?" Harry asked the ninth-graders. "I was always the worst!"
