GREENWICH, Conn. — Prince Harry saved the best for last by scoring the winning goal Wednesday in his charity polo match in Greenwich and celebrating a successful whirlwind weeklong visit to the United States.
Harry played on the winning side of the Sentebale Royal Salute Polo Cup at the Greenwich Polo Club and raised more than $1 million for his charity, Sentebale.
“It is wonderful to be here at Greenwich Polo Club in Connecticut for the Sentebale Royal Salute Polo Cup 2013,” Prince Harry said. “The success of our three previous polo events has helped Sentebale make a real difference to the lives of vulnerable children in Lesotho, the Mountain Kingdom of southern Africa.”
He founded the charity with Prince Seeiso from the Lesotho Royal family in response to the plight of the neediest and most vulnerable of Lesotho’s people, many of whom are victims of extreme poverty and Lesotho’s HIV/AIDs epidemic. Sentebale — which means “forget me not” in the African language of Sesotho — was started in 2006 in memory of the two men’s mothers.
