It seems Prince Harry just couldn’t stay in the saddle when his horse stopped short during a charity polo match in South Africa.
The redheaded royal fell headfirst off the front of his pony during the Sentebale Royal Salute Polo Cup on Saturday, but like any good horseman, he got right back up and finished what he started.
Unlike his father, Prince Charles, who notably broke his arm after falling off a horse in 1990, Harry, 31, seemed unharmed by the fall.
At the end of the match, Harry took a bow while his friend and professional polo player, Nacho Figueras, decided to have a little fun at his expense by pretending to fall off his own horse, leaving the prince in stitches.
Although Harry’s team ultimately lost the match, the event nevertheless raised almost $1 million for the charity, which Prince William's brother founded in 2006 on behalf of children with HIV and AIDS.
It’s not surprising, of course, that Harry gave the charity match all he’s got, considering how important giving back is to him.
In early November, the prince, who did two tours in Afghanistan, participated in a 1,000-treck through Britain for Walk with the Wounded—which raises money to re-educate and re-train wounded servicemen and women.
One U.S. solider even shared a special moment with a clearly emotional Harry. Watch the video below and see.
