The Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry Head-To-Head at Sentebale Polo Cup Sponsored by Royal Salute - 13th June, 2011

The Duke of Cambridge is givin a bottle of Royal SaluteThe Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry demonstrated polo at its finest yesterday with the Duke's team coming out on top, in front of a star-studded crowd at The Sentebale Polo Cup sponsored by Royal Salute.

Neve Campbell, Dougray Scott, Claire Forlani, Ellie Goulding and Greg James, were hosted by the luxury Scotch whisky Royal Salute, as they overlooked a spectacular game of polo at Coworth Park just outside London. The exclusive invite-only event raised funds for Sentebale, a charity co-founded by Prince Harry and Prince Seeiso of Lesotho, who also attended the event.

Prince Harry said: "I'm delighted to be at the second Sentebale Polo Cup in the glorious setting of Coworth Park. While my team didn't finish as champions, it's encouraging to see the level of support here today for this great cause that gives hope and help to the children of Lesotho."

Christian Porta, Chairman and CEO, Chivas Brothers says, "Royal Salute is honoured to be associated with polo and more importantly today, with Sentebale, a very special charity that is helping and changing the lives of many in Lesotho. It's been such a privilege to watch this incredibly historic and skilful game in the beautiful surroundings of Coworth Park."

Royal Salute Master Blender Colin Scott and Garrard Creative Director Stephen Webster with The Tribute To HonourThe exclusive Royal Salute Dinner and After Party, attended by The Prince, the Duke of Argyll, models Karolina Kurkova and Tallulah Harlech, model and actor Douglas Booth, and actors Toby Kebbell and Sally Hawkins, further treated VIPs to a special viewing of Tribute to Honour, Royal Salute's finest and rarest limited edition expression of only 21 bottles. Adorned with over 400 black and white diamonds, Tribute to Honour is a collaboration with Garrard, the royal jeweller and fellow supporter of Sentebale.

The Sentebale event, sponsored by Royal Salute included an auction to raise vital funds for the charity, set up five years ago by Prince Harry and Prince Seeiso, in support of the neediest and most vulnerable people of Lesotho.

The Sentebale Polo Cup sponsored by Royal Salute further highlights the whisky brand's growing commitment to international polo, with sponsorships of some of the world's most prestigious polo events currently spanning China, India, Dubai, Brazil and the UK.

Royal Salute World Polo Series continues on the 18th June 2011 at a charity event held at the Beaufort Polo Club in Tetbury, Gloucestershire and closely followed by The Foundation Polo Challenge, at Santa Barbara, California, to raise funds for the American Friends of the Foundation of Prince William and Prince Harry on 9th July 2011.
