Prince Harry and Prince William appeared to put any rumours of a feud to bed with a subtle gesture, despite going head-to-head during a polo match. The two Dukes took to opposite sides of the field during the sporting event raising cash for various charities in memory of Leicester City owner Khun Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, who died in a helicopter crash in October. And it was William, 37, who came out triumphant on the field, with his team recording a narrow 7-6 victory. Harry, 34, appeared to be graceful in defeat and flashed a smile at his big brother, before putting his arm around him, placing it gently on his back as they posed for pictures during the trophy presentation.

Their Royal Highnesses The Duke of Cambridge and The Duke of Sussex today took part in the King Power Royal Charity Polo Day for the Khun Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha Memorial Polo Trophy. The charity match raised vital funds and awareness for charities supported by Their Royal Highnesses. These organisations included African Parks, The Invictus Games Foundation and The Queen’s Commonwealth Trust. Other charities highlighted in the event: The English Schools Swimming Association, Fields in Trust, Henry van Straubenzee Memorial Fund, The Household Cavalry Operational Casualties Fund, Irish Guards Appeal, Map Action, Mountain Rescue England and Wales, Rhino Conservation Botswana, The Royal Marsden, RFU Injured Players Foundation, The Passage and the Welsh Rugby Charitable Trust.

William opted not to mirror the gesture and kept his arms firmly behind his back. But it will no doubt be seen as a sweet sign of Harry's affection. The duo’s joint engagement follows on from a rumoured rift between the pair and their wives Duchesses Kate and Meghan. The teams were taking part in the match at the Billingbear Polo Club and their families were out in force to watch and cheer them on in the glorious sunshine. But troubles were put aside today and for baby Archie’s christening at the weekend as the “fab four” came together to mark the occasion at Windsor Castle. The family get-together comes weeks after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex confirmed they were leaving the Royal Foundation and setting up their own charity.
William and Kate will remain with the original charity, which will be renamed the Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. William and Harry set up the Royal Foundation back in 2009, with Kate joining two years later. The foundation said the move was taken to “better align” the couples’ charitable activities. But the move sparked speculation of a further divide between the young royals after a turbulent year. Meanwhile, Kate and Meghan were bowled over laughing today as little Prince Louis, one, donned his mum’s sunglasses and stuck his tongue out at Meghan as she held baby Archie. The tot was kissed on the head adoringly by Meghan, 37, on his first outing in public as the new mum wowed in loose ‘Rosetta’ oversized dress by Lisa Marie Fernandez.

Kate, 37, also looked elegant in a flowing pink L.K.Bennett dress, teamed with her trusty Castaner wedges and a red Mulberry bag, as she kept an eye on her excited little ones. Louis was seen giving his mother the run around as he tottered across the grass before being swept into her arms to go wave to his father. Playful Prince George, five, also kept his sister, Princess Charlotte, four, entertained and could be seen picking up a polo mallet. And later, perhaps buoyed by the success of our heroic Lionesses football team, Charlotte raced around the fields kicking a football as brother George entertained himself by clambering in and out of the family’s Audi estate car. A royal source said, “Both families were in great spirits and really seemed to be getting along. The children weren’t paying too much attention to the polo but looked like they were enjoying themselves all afternoon.”Read More
