Prince Harry has often been seen playing one sport in particular: polo. Since moving to California with his wife Meghan Markle, he has been a frequent player in the sports-related social pillars of American high society.
Last weekend, as I mentioned before Hello! Magazine, Harry was seen playing polo at a professional level at the Cancha de Estrela Polo Club in Santa Barbara, playing for Los Padres. He was even seen at the bout falling off his horse, but thankfully he was unharmed in the fall.
According to the UK newspaper The Independent, Harry got into a stumble while playing at the Santa Barbara Polo Club and paddle board, but quickly recovered after other polo players came to his rescue.
But the level of professionalism that Harry has reached in just over a year of playing the sport is noteworthy.
British athlete Millie Haine, who knows the Los Padres team members, told the Daily Mail that Prince Harry trained four times a week and went to the gym most days to keep up with other professional players.
This is the second polo match Harry has been filmed playing in less than a month. In late May, Meghan Markle was photographed cheering her husband at a polo match in California as he was playing in a charity tournament for his team in Los Padres Polo.
Harry’s downfall comes a week after the Sussexes made their first official visit to the UK as a family of four since stepping down as senior royals in 2020.
Meghan and Harry were present at the Thanksgiving service during the platinum jubilee holiday, which marked the 70th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II on the throne of the United Kingdom.
Upon their return to California, the duo released a photo of their daughter Lillipet, who became single on Saturday, June 4.
