Prince Harry’s goodwill tour of the USA took him to a para-Olympics event in Colorado, to a baseball match in Harlem with Alex Teixeira, to a tour of the ravaged Jersey shore with Governor Chris Christie.
Thanks to Peter Brant, cofounder of Bridgehampton Polo Club, the Greenwich Polo Club and the Saratoga Polo Association, Harry ended his tour in princely fashion with a polo match at Brant’s Greenwich Polo Club.
The prince made the trip to Connecticut for a charity polo match and luncheon—dubbed the Sentebale Royal Salute Polo Cup—after Harry’s children’s charity in Lesotho. At lunch, the prince sat between Karolina Kurkova and Brant’s wife, super model Stephanie Seymour.
Hamptons’ favorite polo player Nacho Figueras arrived with his gorgeous wife Delfina Blaquier and their baby daughter. Also on hand were Olivia Palermo,Valentino and Giancarlo Giammetti.
The match between Harry’s team, the Sentebale Squad, and Nacho’s St. Regis team ended with Harry scoring the game-winning point with less than two minutes to go. The announcer mistakenly announced one of Harry’s teammates as having scored, but the very gracious Nacho trotted up to the judges’ stand and said, “That was Harry’s goal.”
The prince could not have been more thrilled to end his American visit in such a manner.
