LONDON, June 13, 2011 /CNW/ - The Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry
demonstrated polo at its finest today, with the Duke's team coming out
on top, in front of a star-studded crowd at The Sentebale Polo Cup
sponsored by Royal Salute.
Neve Campbell, Dougray Scott, Claire Forlani, Ellie Goulding and Greg
James, were hosted by the luxury Scotch whisky Royal Salute, as they
overlooked a spectacular game of polo at Coworth Park just outside
London. The exclusive invite-only event raised funds for Sentebale, a
charity co-founded by Prince Harry and Prince Seeiso of Lesotho, who
also attended the event.
Prince Harry said: "I'm delighted to be at the second Sentebale Polo Cup
in the glorious setting of Coworth Park. While my team didn't finish as
champions, it's encouraging to see the level of support here today for
this great cause that gives hope and help to the children of Lesotho."
Christian Porta, Chairman and CEO, Chivas Brothers says, "Royal Salute
is honoured to be associated with polo and more importantly today, with
Sentebale, a very special charity that is helping and changing the
lives of many in Lesotho. It's been such a privilege to watch this
incredibly historic and skilful game in the beautiful surroundings of
The exclusive Royal Salute Dinner and After Party, attended by The
Prince, the Duke of Argyll, models Karolina Kurkova and Tallulah
Harlech, model and actor Douglas Booth, and actors Toby Kebbell and

Harry and Prince Seeiso, in support of the neediest and most vulnerable
people of Lesotho.
