Duke of Sussex travels to Italy for Sentebale polo match in Rome.

Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, will come to Rome on Friday 24 May for the Sentebale ISPS Handa Polo Cup, according to an announcement by Buckingham Palace.

The trip comes three weeks after the Duke of Sussex and his wife Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, introduced the world to their newborn son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.

Harry will play polo for the Sentebale St. Regis team against a US Polo Association team at the Roma Polo Club in the Parioli district of Rome.

Sentebale is the charity providing support for children suffering from AIDS in southern Africa that Prince Harry established in 2006 with Lesotho’s Prince Lerotholi Seeiso.

Sentebale, of which Harry is patron, organises a charity match each year but this is the first time it will take place in Italy.

Prince Harry visited Italy in 2014, to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Battle of Monte Cassino, and he also visited Italy another time, privately, as a child.
