The Royal Salute team triumphed at the Kent and Curwen Cup on Saturday, narrowly defeating the Westcombe Group team, 7-6.
Hosted by Lord and Lady Lloyd-Webber at Watership Down, their family estate in Berkshire, Prince Harry’s Royal Salute Team contested a closely fought match, emerging victorious.
The Best Player prize was awarded to Leonora De Ferranti from the Westcombe Group team.
The glamorous event, attended by Lady Gabriella Windsor, Kate Silverton, and singer and actor Aaron Kwok (Kent and Curwen Brand Ambassador), raised funds for the Tusk Trust and Sentebale charities, whose patrons are The Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry.
Neil Macdonald, Brand Director of Royal Salute said:[quote]“It was great that the British summer weather finally arrived for the royal charity polo match at Watership Down, a place that is surely one of the most beautiful venues for polo in the UK. We’re proud to have supported this prestigious event and we were thrilled to see the Royal Salute team take the trophy, after a closely fought game.”[/quote]
