He wanted to take parental leave in order to make the most of his wife Meghan Markle and his children. However, the Duke of Sussex did not forget his obligations and he was present this Thursday, August 19 during a charity polo tournament. This was organized in Colorado as part of the Sentebale association and he was alongside his friend Nacho Figueras. The purpose of the event was to raise funds to support vulnerable children in southern Africa, affected by extreme poverty. The opportunity for Prince William’s brother to make a big announcement, that is to say a pledge of donations. Indeed, he said he wanted to give 1.1 million pounds sterling, or 1.5 million dollars to the association. An important sum that he will receive thanks to his memories, expected for 2022.

Earlier today, the Duke of Sussex wanted to thank the people who made this day possible. “We are extremely grateful to our kind hosts in Aspen, ISPS Handa and the many other sponsors, and everyone who helped make this year’s game not only possible, but most importantly, as safe as possible for the protection of people. donors, players, staff and the whole community, ”he said. Subsequently, he said he was “delighted to be able to support Sentebale, both in person and financially through a charitable donation,” he concluded.
Prince Harry: how much could he collect for the Sentebale association?
If Prince Harry made a pledge of £ 1.1million, this day also allowed him to raise a significant sum. Indeed, 2.5 million pounds were given to the Sentebale association. The event was particularly important since the Polo Cup match scheduled for last year had been canceled due to the Covid-19 pandemic. “Because last year’s Polo Cup has been postponed and this year’s one has been drastically reduced in size and scope, the organization needs additional support to continue its mission,” a representative explained. from the Association. There is no doubt that the funds raised but also the pledge of donations from Prince Harry will be very beneficial for Sentebale.
