On Wednesday, May 15th The Sentebale Royal Salute Polo Cup took place for first time in Greenwich, CT. We here at LuxuriousPROTOTYPE had the pleasure of attending the match. After Brazil famously played host to the Sentebale Royal Salute Polo Cup in 2012 and a successful 2011 in the UK, this year marks the third year Royal Salute proudly partners with the charity that was founded by Prince Harry and Prince Seeiso in memory of their mothers in 2006. Sentebale works with local grassroots organizations to help some of Lesotho’s most vulnerable children get the support they need to lead healthy and productive lives.
The finale to Prince Harry’s official tour of the US, the Sentebale Royal Salute Polo Cup took place at Greenwich Polo Club, by invitation only. The club holds a number of exclusive polo tournaments throughout the season, including the Royal Salute Jubilee Cup. The Royal Salute Polo Ambassador Malcolm Borwick will lead Prince Harry’s team, the Sentebale Land Rover team, with Nacho Figueras captaining the St. Regis team. Distinguished guests from all over the world will gather to watch exhibition polo at its finest, including His Grace Torquhil Ian Campbell, the 13th Duke of Argyll, Valentino, Jason Wu, Jessica Stam, Peter Brant, Amanda Hearst, Hana Soukupova, Barbara Cirkva, Johan Lindeberg, Karolina Kurkov, Olivia Palermo and Harry Slatkin.
As seen from some of the distinguished guests, fashion always has a place at these sort of events. While on his US tour, Prince Harry of Wales chose to wear the classic all American brand Dockers as his go to pant.
Royal Salute is a leading international supporter of polo, ‘the king of sports and the sport of kings’. The luxury Scotch whisky’s involvement with Polo is founded on the game’s incredible power, skill and elegance; qualities which blend perfectly with Royal Salute.
