Prince Harry back in saddle for charity polo match in Singapore on solo trip

Prince Harry is back in the saddle as he reached Singapore to play in a polo match in aid of Sentebale. The Duke of Sussex founded Sentebale in 2006 with Prince Seeiso of Lesotho to help children in Africa affected by poverty, inequality, HIV/AIDS and Covid-19.

He is with his polo player best friend Nacho Figueras, but not accompanied by his wife, Meghan or their two children, Archie, four, and Lilibet, two. 

The two of them seemed to have enjoy their time as Nacho recently posted a photograph on Instagram. They playfully posed in women’s sunglasses and captioned the photos as “shopping for our wives”

The annual cup has raised millions since 2010 to support Sentebale’s work with children and young people

The Duke of Sussex, 38, said in a statement: “The annual Polo Cup is essential to Sentebale’s vital work ensuring children and young people are healthy, resilient, and able to thrive.

“The funds raised this year will support our Clubs and Camps programme, which provides intensive psychosocial support to young people living with HIV.

 “In a time where being HIV positive is no longer a death sentence, we are empowering young people to know their status, stay healthy, and eliminate the stigma so that they can break the cycle.

“We are delighted to return to the renowned Singapore Polo Club in August, and are once again enormously grateful for the polo community and our sponsors, in particular ISPS Handa, for their ongoing commitment to Lesotho and Botswana’s youth.”

 On Tuesday, the 38-year-old prince touched down in Japan, where he received a warm welcome and later told an audience he would ‘happily live here if you’d have me’.

The Duke, who praised the “warmth, compassion and generosity” of the Japanese people, made the comments during the summit organised by the International Sports Promotion Society (ISPS) on Wednesday.
