Britain’s Prince Harry experienced a royal pain Sunday, but thankfully no long-lasting injuries, when he fell off his pony during a polo event to benefit an African AIDS charity, and RadarOnline.com has the pics.
Prince Harry was at the 3rd Annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic on Governor’s Island in New York for his match against polo ace Nacho Figueras of Argentina.
“I think his horse got spooked, or something,” Figueras, whose team won the match 6-5, told the AP of the prince’s tumble. “It was a very tight match… right till the end, we didn’t know who was going to win, so it was very exciting to play.”
Prince Harry, 25, lauded the humanitarian work of the U.S. in a pre-match speech, saying that America “has always protected the downtrodden, the poorest, those most in need of help in the world.”
