AROUND THE WORLD: THE SENTEBALE ROYAL SALUTE POLO CUP HAS A WINNER!

Prince Harry competed during the Sentebale Royal Salute Polo Cup in Palm Beach at Valiente Polo Farm on May 4, 2016 in Palm Beach, United. The event raised money for Prince Harry’s charity Sentebale, which supports vulnerable children and young people living with HIV in Lesotho in southern Africa.  Polo players, including Royal Salute World Polo Ambassador Malcolm Borwick, Prince Harry, and Argentine player Nacho Figueras, walk off the pitch after competing during the Sentebale Royal Salute Polo Cup in Palm Beach at Valiente Polo Farm on May 4, 2016 in Palm Beach, United. Prince Harry and Royal Salute World Polo Ambassador Malcolm Borwick pose with their team after competing during the Sentebale Royal Salute Polo Cup.    Photos ©2016 Getty Images 
It was a rainy day in Palm Springs when the match took place yesterday in Florida. After Prince Harry's team won the march, the Prince announced he would extend his charity:

"This year, we are working with established partners and government departments elsewhere across southern Africa; and I am delighted to confirm that we will be expanding our camp programme into Botswana, a country I have been visiting regularly for almost two decades and genuinely feel I need to give as much back as I can."

"We are confident that in partnership with others and by maximizing our use of the new centre, we will provide 1 million hours of support to children and young people living with HIV and Aids across the region by 2020"

On another note I am so delighted Canada will now have its own Invictus Games thanks to the collaboration between Prince Harry and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
