AROUND THE WORLD: THE SENTEBALE ROYAL SALUTE POLO CUP TRAVELS TO PALM BEACH

PAARL, SOUTH AFRICA - NOVEMBER 28: Prince Harry, Prince Seeiso of Lesotho and Sentebale Polo Ambassador Nacho Figueras with the trophy during the Sentebale Royal Salute Polo Cup at Val de Vie Estate on November 28, 2015 in Paarl, South Africa. This is the first time Sentebale Royal Salute Polo Cup has taken place on the African continent.

Every year ROYAL SALUTE Scotch Whisky sponsors a Polo match ( see a fabulous video here ) to raise funds for Prince Harry's charity SENTEBALE, that is dedicated to assisting children living with HIV Aids.

You can attend the event by invitation only. This will be the first time it will happen at the Valiente Polo Farm in Palm Spring this May 4th 2016. There is a lot of excitement in the air in Wellington as the people are getting ready to greet the Prince. This will not be the first time the city hosts royalty, check this link for recent memories including images of Lady Diana.

" In 2015, Sentebale opened the ‘Mamohato Children’s Centre in Lesotho, a purpose-built facility to 
support all of the charity’s work with vulnerable children, and specifically to host camps delivering psychosocial support to 1,500 HIV-positive young people each year. The money and awareness raised from The Sentebale Royal Salute Polo Cup will enable the Sentebale to transform thousands more young lives - if children with HIV are educated about the virus, they not only learn about their condition but also can educate their peers about the disease, enlightening a generation and leading the way to ending the AIDS epidemic. " 

The Prince will not stay long in Palm Spring because he will then go to Orlando to participate in the Invictus Games For Our Wounded Warriors,  where he will stay for more than a week.

I got tears in my eyes when I saw the photographs below that remind me so much of Lady Diana who left us so young. However, her handsome young son is keeping up the good work.
