Prince of Polo
(NEW YORK) Ralph Lauren signifies classic Americana, but his symbol--the polo pony--has its roots on the other side of the pond. The United States and the United Kingdom will come together, however, at the end of the month, when Prince Harry of Wales will make his first formal visit to America to play in the second annual Veuve Clicquot Manhattan Polo Classic on May 30. Proceeds from the event will benefit American Friends of Sentebale, a U.S.-based charity that supports at-risk children in Lesotho, Africa (co-founded by Prince Harry and Prince Seeiso Bereng Seeiso of Lesotho in honor of their mothers, Diana, Princess of Wales and Queen ‘Mamohato).
In true polo form, traditional dress is required--that’s hats for the ladies, summer suits for the boys--and the St. Regis New York will provide the afternoon tea and refreshments. Prince Harry will play on the team captained by Nick Roldan, and Nacho Figueras, world-renowned Argentine polo player and new face of Ralph Lauren’s Polo Fragrances, will captain the opposite playing team.
