Prince Harry Returns to NYC for Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic
The royal redhead returns to New York on June 27 to go mallet-to-mallet with Argentinian Nacho Figueras in the Veuve Cliquot Polo Classic on Governor's Island. Figueras (below), named one of "Polo's 10 Hottest Horsemen" by Vanity Fair, plays the sport professionally when he's not modeling for Ralph Lauren. Last year his team lost to Prince Harry's Santebale team, named after the charity the prince started for underprivileged children in Lesotho, Africa.
The event, once again, will benefit the American Friends of Sentebale, the U.S. arm of that charity the British royal started with Prince Seeiso of the Lesotho Royal Family. Last year Madonna, Kate Hudson, LL Cool J and Marc Jacobs were just a few of the celebs in attendance. For VIP access, guests can purchase a table in the VIP Marquee or buy a $250 picnic ticket for a Champagne lunch on the lawn. But ladies, don't forget your hats and men break out the seersucker; traditional polo style is requested: Ladies in hats and men in summer suits.
