Prince Harry plays polo in New York City

This past Sunday, England's Prince Harry fueled his passion for polo as he participated in the Second Annual Veuve Clicquot Manhattan Polo Classic on Governor's Island. The Prince's Sentebale polo team (named for a charity) eeked out a win over Ralph Lauren's Black Watch, captained by Polo model Nacho Figueras, five goals to four, with Prince Harry assisting on a goal to move his team ahead in the final seconds. The VIP seating area was full of celebrities such as Madonna, Marc Jacobs, Kate Hudson, Donna Karan, and Chloe Sevigny, who enjoyed the mild weather while sipping Veuve Clicquot after ponying up $50,000 a table or $500 a head for lawn seats. The grandstand seating was open and free to the public. The event was part of the Prince's second and final day of his first official visit to the United States.
