Prince Harry in polo fall
Prince Harry suffered a dramatic head-first fall while playing polo last weekend.
The flame-haired prince was thrown off his horse during a charity game in South Africa, but fortunately the quick-thinking royal managed to avoid any damage to his skull by putting his hands out in front of himself to break his fall.
Fortunately, Harry wasn’t injured in the tumble.
But the prince didn’t take any chances with the same equine after the incident as he got up, dusted himself down swapped horses.
It didn’t make much of a difference as he was later on the floor again, falling between two other players.
While he escaped injury during his two tumbles, one knocked his helmet off revealing a bit of a bald patch.
Harry was taking part in a Sentebale Royal Salute Polo Cup match in Cape Town and the event is expected to raise around $1 million.
The game is a big fundraiser in the city for the Sentebale charity, which the price established to help kids suffering from HIV and AIDS in Lesotho.
Despite Harry scoring a goal during the game, his team went down 8-7 losers.
But the prince certainly didn’t have any hard feelings as he joked and hugged fellow competitors at the game’s prize giving ceremony.
