Prince Harry will visit Singapore this August for the first time in six years. The second son of the King of England will play a charity polo match at the Singapore Polo Club during his visit on August 12.
The Duke of Sussex, will compete in the annual Sentebale ISPS Handa Polo Cup, in support of children and young people affected by poverty, inequality, and HIV/Aids in Southern Africa. The polo tournament in Singapore will see Prince Harry play on the Royal Salute Sentebale Team against the Singapore Polo Club Team.
Wonderfully, the funds from the tournament will go towards clubs and camps in South Africa – which provides intensive psychosocial support to young people living with HIV, according to Sentebale.
Sentebale ambassador and Argentinian polo player Nacho Figueras is the captain of the Sentebale team. Additionally, he will take to the polo field in Singapore with his long-time friend Prince Harry.
Plus, the pair are set to participate in ISPS Sports Values Summit in Tokyo, Japan on August 9 before travelling to Singapore.
