Prince Harry at the Harlem Children’s Zone
This past Saturday, during his second trip to New York, Prince Harry of Wales visited the Harlem Children’s Zone and participated in the 2nd annual Veuve Clicquot Manhattan Polo Classic on Governors Island.
Greeted by crowds of on lookers on 125th street Harry, second son of Princess Diana and Prince Charles, visited the school which has become a model for the Obama administration’s new education plan.
The Prince chatted with the kids about math, ate curried rice made by the kids and participated in an obstacle course that was a part of a physical education class. One of the kids even tried to make the Prince a little hipper by teaching him a Harlem handshake. 11 year old Salif Kone said “We tried to teach him to be like a homie with the handshake”.
After leaving Harlem Prince Harry went to Governor’s Island to participate in the Veuve Clicquot Manhattan’s Polo Classic which supports Sentebale, a charity that he created with Prince Seeiso from the Lesotho Royal Family in response to the plight of some of Africa’s neediest, orphans and vulnerable children in Lesotho.
The polo match attracted A-list celebs including Chloe Sevigny, Kate Hudson, Donna Karan, Marc Jacobs, Alek Wek, Lorenzo Martone, Madonna, Rachel Roy, Veronica Webb, and LL Cool J.
