Prince Harry takes time out for charity

Britain's Prince Harry took time out from a charity polo match yesterday, to play with a young fan.

The Mirror reported that 27-year-old Prince Harry stroked a giggling baby's head and chatted with the child's mother.

Prince Harry, along with his 29-year-old brother, Prince William, showed their competitive streak as they teamed up for a charity match at the exclusive Coworth Park Polo club in Ascot.

Funds from this year's events are being used to support Prince Harry's charity, Sentebale, which aids orphans and children in Lesotho.

More than 200 celebrity guests were invited, including actors Russell Crowe and Gemma Arterton.

The brothers seemed to exert themselves during the game, reports The Mirror, with a red-faced Harry pausing regularly throughout the match in order to stretch.

Prince Harry was not the only star of the charity polo match, however, as his sister-in-law, the Duchess of Cambridge, opted for a grey-blue silk shift dress with a pair of towering wedges, which proved a rather impractical as it blew in the wind, reported The Mail.
