He will be joined by his friend, Argentine polo player Nacho Figueras, 45.

They will battle two teams in an annual tournament run by Sentebale in Aspen, Colorado.

It is unclear if Harry’s wife Meghan, 41, will attend to cheer him on.


Harry said: “We’re delighted to return to the stunning grounds of Aspen Valley Polo Club.”

“Sixteen years ago, Prince Seeiso and I founded Sentebale in honour of our mothers’ work in HIV, and named after my mum’s favourite flower, the ‘forget-me-not’ in Sesotho, representing our commitment to always remembering and advocating for those in need.

“We are all proud of the support we are able to give the young people of Lesotho and Botswana to feel empowered, healthy, resilient, and able to thrive.

“The funds raised this year will be invested in these communities at a critical time, as inequalities have been exacerbated by the pandemic.

“We are enormously grateful to our partners and supporters here today, especially our long-standing title sponsor, ISPS Handa, for making the day possible.”
