The Duke of Sussex is to stage his fundraising Sentebale Polo Cup in Italy this year, Buckingham Palace has announced.

Sentebale was founded by the duke and Lesotho’s Prince Seeiso in 2006 to help the most vulnerable children and young people in southern Africa get the support they need to lead healthy and productive lives.

The match will see Harry play on the Sentebale St Regis team captained by Sentebale Ambassador Nacho Figueras, against a US Polo Assn team that will be captained by Malcolm Borwick.
