The Princess of Wales, Kate, will be present at the Out-Sourcing Inc. Royal Charity Polo Cup 2023 held at Guards Polo Club in Windsor. She will be supporting her husband, Prince William, who is participating in the match.
The event aims to raise funds and increase awareness for 11 charities that the royal couple supports. These charities include Mental Health Innovations, Wales Air Ambulance, Centrepoint, The Passage, Mountain Rescue England & Wales, Foundling Museum, Forward Trust, East Anglia Children's Hospices, Baby Basics, Little Village, and AberNecessities.
During the match, Kate will have the opportunity to meet representatives from these charities, who will benefit from the event.
The upcoming Royal Charity Polo Day will commemorate its 12th year and is anticipated to surpass a cumulative fundraising total of £12,000,000. This significant amount will benefit various deserving causes that hold great importance to both the Prince and Princess.
During the previous year's event, Kate was accompanied by the family's dog named Orla, who joined her on the sidelines. On that occasion, the Princess was observed affectionately kissing her husband in celebration of his polo victory and trophy collection.
In following the footsteps of their father, King Charles, and their late grandfather, Prince Philip, William and his younger brother, Prince Harry, have developed a shared passion for the sport of polo. Charles retired from competitive polo at the age of 57 in 2005, after having played internationally as part of different teams.
Conversely, the late Duke of Edinburgh continued his involvement in polo until the age of 50 in 1957. At that point, he transitioned to the sport of carriage driving as his primary equestrian pursuit.
William and Kate have had a packed week thus far. On Tuesday, the Princess attended Wimbledon for the first time, accompanied by Roger Federer, the eight-time champion, in the royal box.
Kate also watched Katie Boulter's match on Court 18 and had a conversation about her own Wimbledon memories with Emma Raducanu, a former US Open winner.
On Wednesday, William and Kate journeyed to Edinburgh, Scotland, where they joined King Charles and Queen Camilla at a special thanksgiving service held at St Giles' Cathedral to commemorate the coronation.
The Prince wore the ceremonial robes of the Order of the Thistle, while Kate paid homage to Scotland's flag by wearing a blue Catherine Walker coat dress and a matching Philip Treacy hat.
She completed her ensemble with the late Queen Elizabeth's Garrard four-string pearl choker as an accessory.
