Prince Harry will visit Dubai on Saturday 19th March to take part in the second Sentebale Polo Cup, which is being held in Dubai in association with Royal Salute.

The Prince will undertake additional engagements in the Emirate of Dubai throughout the day. St James’s Palace will issue further information about these in due course.

This will be the second Sentebale Polo Cup match after Prince Harry and Prince Seeiso of Lesotho launched the event at the Apes Hill Polo Club in Barbados in January 2010.

The Princes launched the Cup to focus attention on, and raise funds for Sentebale – the charity they founded to continue the legacy of their late mothers’ charitable work with children. Sentebale means ‘forget-me-not’ in Sesotho and was chosen as a reminder never to forget the victims of poverty and of the HIV/AIDS epidemic prevalent in Lesotho.

Background:  Royal Salute is the title sponsor for the 2011 Sentebale Polo Cup

This will be Prince Harry’s first visit to the United Arab Emirates
