Prince Harry to Make First Formal Visit to United States Premiere

HRH Prince Henry of Wales to Play Exhibition Match in Support of American Friends of Sentebale NEW YORK, May 13 /PRNewswire/ — Veuve Clicquot
is delighted to welcome HRH Prince Henry of Wales to the United States this May for his first-ever formal visit to the United States. Prince Harry will play in the second annual Veuve Clicquot Manhattan Polo Classic, taking place on Saturday, May 30th. Event proceeds will benefit American Friends of Sentebale, a U.S.-based charity that supports at-risk children in Lesotho, Africa. Sentebale was co-founded by HRH Prince Henry of Wales and HRH Prince Seeiso Bereng Seeiso of Lesotho in honor of their mothers, Diana, Princess of Wales and Queen ‘Mamohato, respectively. The Veuve Clicquot Manhattan Polo Classic will coincide with the 400th anniversary of New York and opening day of the Governors Island season. The event will feature areas that are both open to the public at no charge as well as those that will require tickets. In reverence to the long-time polo tradition, VIP guests will be asked to wear traditional polo style: women in hats men in summer suits. This year, Veuve Clicquot has invited the iconic St. Regis New York to feature its legendary Afternoon Tea at the polo match. In celebration, Sandro Micheli, Executive Pastry Chef at Adour Alain Ducasse at The St. Regis New York, has created a special menu for the occasion.
While Prince Harry will play on the team captained by Nick Roldan, world renowned Argentine polo player and new face of Ralph Lauren’s Polo Fragrances, Nacho Figueras, will captain the opposite playing team, Black Watch.
