Sometimes it sucks to be a Royal. Like when you’re playing in a charity polo match to raise money for a good cause, but you lose your balance and slide right over your horse’s head.
In slow motion.
But you dust yourself off and get back out there—ONLY DO IT AGAIN.
And, in the end, all you can do is take a bow.
Because you know that mortifying moment was caught on camera and is about to break the Internet.
For the record, the match was the Sentebale Royal Salute Polo Cup, an annual fundraiser for a charity Prince Harry set up to help children suffering with HIV and AIDS in Lesotho, Southern Africa. The event, held this year in Cape Town, is estimated to raise just under $1 million. While it’s probably not the way he envisioned raising awareness for an excellent cause, it’ll certainly be the most effective.
We applaud you, good sir! (We’re also going to watch that video on repeat about a hundred times.)
