HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Britain's Prince Harry is wrapping up a weeklong visit to the United States in the affluent New York City suburb of Greenwich, Conn., where he is playing in a polo match at a club with a history of hosting royal visitors.
The prince is competing Wednesday at the Greenwich Polo Club to benefit Sentebale, the charity he co-founded to help poor children and AIDS orphans in the small African nation of Lesotho.
A home to many celebrities, Greenwich is hardly unaccustomed to fanfare, but for some the visit of the 28-year-old prince is still a cause for celebration. At the Atelier360 shop on Greenwich Avenue, co-owner Veronique Lee said they are planning a party Wednesday with tea and cucumber sandwiches.
The prince began his visit to the U.S. on May 9.
