Archie Attends First Polo Match With Mom Meghan Markle to Cheer On Dad
It was a royal family affair to support Prince William and Prince Harry at their polo match on Wednesday. The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan, brought baby Archie to watch dad, Prince Harry, play polo against his brother, Prince William.
Prince William’s wife, Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, also attended with their children Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis. The outing was the first time the royal cousins have all been seen together in public and just days after Archie’s christening.
The King Power Royal Charity Polo Day took place at the Billingbear Polo Club in Berkshire and the Prince’s participation helped raise money for organizations which they support.
Rebecca English, a Royal Correspondent for the Daily Mail in London, wrote on Twitter that the organizations included a huge list of causes including “African Parks, The English Schools Swimming Association, Fields in Trust, Henry van Straubenzee Memorial Fund, The Household Cavalry Operational Casualties Fund, The Invictus Games Foundation, Irish Guards Appeal, Map Action, Mountain Rescue England and Wales, The Queen’s Commonwealth Trust, Rhino Conservation Botswana, The Royal Marsden, RFU Injured Players Foundation, The Passage, and the Welsh Rugby Charitable Trust."
The outing also came just after People magazine published a series about how the Sussex’s are adjusting to parenthood. “Basking in the glow” said a royal source. Adding “As most new parents are, they’re just so excited. There’s something new every day. They’re just really happy.”
