PICS! Prince William and Harry’s polo showdown

The competitive royal siblings went head to head during a charity match over the weekend...

After a weekend of family events – the Trooping of the Colour and Prince Phillip’s 90th birthday celebrations – it seems Princes William and Harry were only too happy to let off some steam.

The competitive siblings went head to head on the polo field yesterday afternoon, during the Royal Salute-sponsored charity match at the exclusive Coworth Park in Berkshire.

Despite the strong wind and torrential rain, a 300-strong crowd turned out to watch the Princes battle it out, all in aid of Prince Harry’s African charity Sentebale.

It’s thought the event was originally due to be held in Dubai, but was rescheduled by the royals earlier this year, after the country’s growing unrest.

Gearing up for a good game, the competitive brothers didn’t hold back during the sporting occasion, charging around the field in the thick of the action.

And despite Prince Harry putting up a fight, the Duke of Cambridge’s team managed to clinch the title, and money to be donated his choice of charity, Tusk.

After the match, Prince Harry hosted a dinner and charity auction to raise money for Sentebale.

Lucky guests – including Neve Campbell and Ellie Goulding – dining on potted salmon, cottage pie and summer pudding. Yum.
