Sport-mad Harry

Harry, a keen polo player, was picked from hundreds of other young players to captain the England Schools team during an international game against France.

He is a member of the Beaufort polo club and the nearby Cirencester club and has competed in many tournaments.

The chairman of the British Forces Foundation Team, who plays with the Prince, says that if he worked hard, there is no reason why Harry couldn't join the group of 100 professional polo players in Britain.


Harry is also passionate about rugby. In 2004 he will help to coach young players at clubs, schools and communities.

He will also promote the game as a volunteer for the Rugby Football Union (RFU).

A keen rugby fan, the Prince was among the crowd when the England team won the World Cup in Australia in November 2003.

Mad for sports, Harry was house games captain at Eton and also loves football, cricket and skiing.
