The Duke of Cambridge took to the polo field today to play in the Out-Sourcing Inc. Royal Charity Polo Cup at Guards Polo Club, to raise awareness and funds for eight charities supported by The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

The Duke played as part of the U.S. Polo Assn. team alongside Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha, Clive Reid and Mark Tomlinson. The opposing Thomas Goode team was formed by Louisa Farrington Watt, Abdulla Boulsien, Second Lt Cadogan and Jack Richardson, with the BP Polo team made up of Joevy Beh, James Beh, Simon Arbour and Hugo Taylor.

In an exciting round robin format, it was the U.S Polo Assn team who won by two goals over the Thomas Goode and BP Polo teams to be victorious for the Out-Sourcing Inc. Cup.
