The Royal brothers took time out of the Olympics to take part in a sporting event of their own
Prince William and Prince Harry took a break from the Olympic games to compete in their own sporting event this weekend – the Jerudong Trophy Polo – but brought the match forward so they wouldn’t miss seeing Usain Bolt go for gold.
The Royal brothers have been active ambassadors for the London 2012 games, darting around the city with Kate Middleton to cheer on as many sporting events as they can, but the princes demonstrated their own competitive side yesterday.
Battling it out on opposing teams, Wills and Harry took part in the annual polo match in the Cotsworlds to raise money for three of the charities they are associated with: Centrepoint, Wellchild and Dolen Cymru.
The match was brought forward by half an hour as the Team GB ambassadors were determined not to miss Usain Bolt going for gold in the 100m final.
Cheeky Harry famously beat Bolt, the fastest man on the planet, when he challenged the athlete to a race during his royal Jubilee tour.
Afterwards Bolt, who jogged after the royal, joked: ‘He cheated, I said we would have a rematch in London 2012 and Harry said ‘I’m busy.’
After meeting with guests and accepting their awards the princes declined to take a helicopter back to London, insisting instead that the would drive themselves back to the Olympic Park.
Could we love these two anymore?
