Prince Harry is to make his first visit to the United Arab Emirates in March when he will visit Dubai to take part in the Sentebale Polo Cup on Saturday 19th March 2011.
This is to be the second Sentebale Polo Cup after the inaugural event which took place in Barbados during January 2010, when Prince Harry and Prince Seeiso of Lesotho launched the competition at the Apes Hill Polo Club.
The Sentebale Polo Cup is designed to raise awareness in, and funds for, Sentebale, a children’s charity the Princes set up to continue the work done by Prince Harry’s late mother, Princess Diana.
“Sentebale” means “forget-me-not” in Sesotho – the name given as a reminder not to forget victims of the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Lesotho.
The Sentebale Polo Cup in Dubai will be sponsored by Royal Salute.
