Prince William and Prince Harry receive royal, adorable support at their charity polo show!
William was accompanied by wife Kate Middleton and their three children – Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis – on the King Power Royal Charity Polo Day on Wednesday while Harry was welcomed by Meghan Markle and their 2-month-old son Archie. The competition will help raise funds and raise awareness for charities supported by the royal brothers.
The special event marks the first public playing date of the queen’s cousins together.
Kate Middleton, wearing a pink dress and her Castaer espadrilles, held 1-year-old Louis in her arms. He later played with his mother in the grass, while George, who turns 6 on July 22, and the 4-year-old Charlotte plays nearby.
Meghan Markle, who wore an olive-green ensemble, was seen from the parking lot with the little Archie in her arms. She gave him a sweet kiss on the forehead as she headed for the field.
Harry and Meghan celebrated their son’s baptism during the weekend with a small group of close friends and family.
The royal parents, who left their Kensington Palace in London for the relaxed setting of Frogmore Cottage in Windsor before the birth of Archie, enjoyed the first eight weeks of parenting with their baby.
“They bask in the glow every day and enjoy,” a royal source exclusively tells MEN in this week’s cover story. “Like most new parents, they are just so excited. There is something new every day. They are just very happy.”
The royal children were strangers to the polo field. Last summer George and Charlotte assisted their cousins for a day of fun during another of their father’s polo competitions.
“The first thing they did when they left the car slid down the hill on his ass,” a viewer told MENSEN at the time. “George stared at some hoarding on the edge of the field, grinning at the others who were messing around with him.”
“Kate is a fantastic mother,” the observer added. “She was calm with the children.” With a British expression for “loosening”, the viewer said, “She let them have their head.”
Royal fathers William and Harry may be regular customers in the polo scene, but it is not expected that they will participate in so many competitions this season. Harry became a first time father in May to son Archie, while the father of three William has his own parental obligations, say royal sources.
“They will both play polo to support their charities, but work and family responsibilities mean that they cannot commit to as many polo competitions as before”
