After deciding to give up his polo ponies, I can report that Prince William replaced them with a giant painting by a friend that now hangs in his house.
And interestingly, Wills gave a copy of the painting to his brother Prince Harry, who traded polo for yoga.
The artist Madeleine de St Pierre Bunbury, 25, tells me: “Prince William commissioned me himself. He gave up playing polo and wanted to get rid of his ponies, so he asked me to paint them all together.RELATED POSTS
“He gave a copy to his bridegroom and brother. I know him from how we met on Mustique and our parents are friends. It took a month to complete the project as there were 12 ponies. I’d rather not say how much it cost, but I made him a deal, ”added Madeleine, who, as my photo shows, must be the only artist who paints standing on a horse!
