How can you resist not to love the fact that they love polo too! Maybe one day the Polo Girls will play against the royals Prince William and Prince Harry and prove its a game of Queens too!
Prince William and Princess Kate arrived at Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club on Saturday July 9th 2011 to participate in a polo match expected to raise millions for charity. And it accomplished that goal raising $4 Million Dollars to go to their foundation and the Polo Training Center in Santa Barbara.
The newlyweds arrived by helicopter in the coastal city of Carpinteria in Santa Barbara County, joining hundreds of well-heeled royal watchers who’d traveled long distances – and paid big sums – to see them.
The cheap seats cost $400, while anyone paying $4,000 for a VIP ticket would get a chance to hobnob with William and his bride. Princess Kate presented the trophy to the winning team. The team to play William paid about $50,000 to play in the game. Those playing on the same team as the duke paid twice that amount.
The list of celebrities attending reads like a who’s who of Hollywood royalty: Tom Hanks, Nicole Kidman, Quentin Tarantino and Judd Apatow.
