It is reported that Prince went through, not one, not two, but three horses during a polo match in California. He even fell off one of them during the hour-long match. This match, being played at the Santa Barbara Polo and Racquet Club, pictured Prince Harry on his knees before he jumped back on.

The 37-year-old Royal was quick to get back on his feet after he fell, while other players came rushing to check on him. While Meghan Markle was not present in the audience, other witnesses confirmed the number of horses he rode during the match.

Reportedly, this was the second match Harry played in a time frame of less than a month. During the end of May, he was accompanied by his wife when he played a charity tournament for his Los Padres team. During this game, Meghan was dressed in a polka dot blouse and paired it with white Bermuda shorts. As for accessories, she had a wide-brimmed hat with oversized sunglasses.

His fall happened merely a week after the Sussexes made their first official visit back to the United Kingdom as a family, with their children Archie, 3 and Lilibet, 1, — their first-ever public visit as a family since the couple stepped down as royal seniors in 2020. They were in UK to attend the Service of Thanksgiving over the platinum jubilee weekend, which celebrated the Queen’s 70th year on the throne. Their daughter turned a year old on Saturday, June 4. Her special day was celebrated with a face painting.
