(Newser) – Prince Harry's recent fundraising efforts in Barbados have resulted in two viral videos—one where he shows off his dancing skills, and another in which he, well, doesn't quite show off his polo skills. The prince tumbled from his horse during a charity polo match raising money for impoverished children, the Daily Mail reports. Explaining his apparent temper tantrum after the fall, Harry later said he was upset he may have lost a $100,000 donation promised to the charity if he stayed on his horse.

"Fortunately this extremely generous gentleman has already been in touch and told us that it was the clear that the horse fell over, rather than I fell off it, so he was happy to honor the $100,000," Harry said. During the same trip, the prince danced the calypso at a Haiti fundraiser, raising $2,500 from the watching crowd, the Frisky reports. Watch both videos—complete with slo-mo action—in the gallery.
