Prince Harry takes part in moving minute of silence at special polo match

In order to compete in the Sentebale ISPS Handa Polo Cup, Prince Harry traveled to Aspen for a special polo match with Nacho Figueras.

HELLO! can reveal that the Duke took part in a moment of silence at the start of the competition for a beloved polo player who tragically passed away this past week at the age of 37.

Chevy Beh, the CEO of the medical appointment scheduling app BookDoc, who was slated to play on the Royal Salute team at the charity event, was the recipient of the tribute for which the royal removed his hat.

In addition to being a successful businessman, he was a skilled polo player who once led the England Under-21 team against Prince Harry and Prince William.

In recognition of the American national anthem that signaled the start of the competition, the Duke of Sussex also chose to remove his hat.

As the Sentebale team competed against other US Polo Association teams, The Prince and his friend Nacho played together.

The Duke stated that the team was “proud of the support we are able to give the young people of Lesotho and Botswana to feel empowered, healthy, resilient, and able to thrive” at the annual event, which serves as the charity’s biggest annual fundraiser.

The pandemic has made inequalities worse, so the money raised this year will be invested in these communities at a crucial time, he continued.

The day would not have been possible without the help of our partners and supporters, especially our steadfast title sponsor, ISPS Handa.

    Very nice! I’m proud of you for all the work you do to help make the world a little better for vulnerable populations, such as the children that Sentebale serves. It’s very impressive that you started that charity when you were only 21 (you were going to be 22 that year). I’m looking forward to finally meeting you and having you and our kids in my life. We are going to do a lot of good together.
