Harry in glitzy charity polo match

Prince Harry is concluding his two-day tour of New York with a charity polo match.

The 24-year-old royal will take part in the Veuve Clicquot Manhattan Polo Classic to help raise funds for Sentebale - the charity he set up with Prince Seeiso of Lesotho. Others due to attend the event include hip hop Grammy winner Kanye West and film stars Kate Hudson and Chloe Sevigny. Money from the event will go towards Sentebale's projects to alleviate the plight of Lesotho's orphans and children living in poverty. Before the tournament, Harry will be going to Harlem to visit a centre that works with local children. It comes two decades after his mother, Diana, Princess of Wales, visited Harlem and won admirers by picking up and hugging a seven-year-old Aids sufferer at a time when the stigma attached to the disease was at its height. The trip to New York - Harry's second to the US - marks his first formal overseas engagements.

On Friday, in a sombre start to the tour, Harry paid tribute to the victims of the September 11 attacks, laying a wreath at Ground Zero.
