Prince Harry to visit Greenwich for a charity polo match

April 5, 2013 by  

Buckingham Palace recently announced that Prince Harry, the youngest son of Princess Diana and Prince Charles, will be coming to the United States in mid-May for one week to visit parts of New Jersey that were ravaged by hurricane Sandy, as well as Greenwich for a charity polo match.

The Palace has released an itinerary of the Prince’s time in the United States, which is to be filled with receptions, official outings, and dinners, and which will also be promoting various charities and causes, in particular those for injured veterans.

His trip, which will no doubt be promoted via flyer printing, is scheduled to begin on May 9 when he flies into Washington, D.C. and then to the 2013 Warrior Games in Colorado. Next, the Prince will return to the East Coast to visit the coastal regions that were badly hit along with Governor Chris Christie of New Jersey. His final stop will be Greenwich for a polo match at the Greenwich Polo Club.

The goal of the polo session is to raise money for Sentebale, which is a charity founded by the Prince and Prince Seeiso of Lesotho and cares for children who are poor in the country of Lesotho.

The Anglophiles of Greenwich are gladdened by the pending visit of Prince Henry. According to Natalie Pray, the president of the English Speaking Union of Greenwich, although she understands that the Prince will not be able to visit her organization, she is pleased that he has chosen to visit Greenwich as it has excellent polo fields.
