Prince Harry spent the weekend on official duties in New York City, paying his respects at Ground Zero, planting a tree at the British Garden at Hanover Square, playing with the kids at Harlem Children's Zone, and taking part in a charity polo match. A whole host of celebrities turned up for the Veuve Clicquot Manhattan Polo Classic on Governor's Island, including LL Cool J, Madonna, Marc Jacobs, Chole Sevigny and a newly brunette Kate Hudson. My girl Bella UK wants to know do you prefer Kate as a blonde or brunette? Prince Harry's Sentebale team beat Blackwatch 6-5 and he celebrated with champagne before giving a lengthy interview:
- On living with William: "He does most of the cooking. I spend time just lying around, watching TV and doing my work."
- On his RAF training: "There’s times when I thought, you know, I’m not really cut out for this mentally. I hope I’ve got the physical skills to fly a helicopter. But mentally, there are exams and everything. I mean, I can’t do maths. I gave that up when I left school, as anyone does at that age. But I’ve been throwing myself back in the deep end."
- On his mother's legacy: "Prince Seeiso and I both lost our mothers when we were young. We set up Sentebale in their memory. Sentebale is the Lesotho word for the flower forget-me-not. This beautiful kingdom has been ravaged by HIV/AIDS and poverty, leaving thousands of children without parents to look after them. We hoped to create a charity that would transform children's lives, giving them a sense of hope and security. We really do believe that Sentebale is doing this."
It's great to see Harry getting so involved with such good causes.
