Prince Harry Spits Champagne on Rival Polo Player Nacho Figueras


Prince Harry visited New York City over the weekend and played Polo on Governor's Island:

"On a brilliantly sunny day on Governors Island in New York Harbor, the 24-year-old prince drew a crowd that included stars like Madonna, actresses Kate Hudson and Chloe Sevigny, and rapper LL Cool J, but also lots of ordinary New Yorkers out for a rare sight: a polo game in the city. 'You see this out in the Hamptons, but not so much in the city,' said Vincent Hodgins of Manhattan, who brought his two sons to watch the prince play. The Veuve Clicquot Manhattan Polo Classic was a fundraiser for Sentebale, the charity that Harry has set up with Prince Seeiso of Lesotho to help poor children and AIDS orphans in that small African nation surrounded by South Africa."

He also spit Champagne on world class Argentinian polo player Nacho Figueras after the athlete and model doused him with it.

  5. Why, that's as much a part of male bonding as pats on the butt and towel snapping. Anyone ever see that movie, The Program?

  6. One hot man, and helping those suffering from the loss of AIDS. Compared to him, his brother seems like a dud. According to reports, he is very well hung...not that I care about those types of things.

  8. The frat boy antics of James Hewitt's son make him so much cooler than his 1/2 bro William, Charle's son

  9. Oh dear, he needs some media training.

  10. Looks like Harry is into water sports. Kind of gross, but as long as I'm not involved, to each his own.

  11. MY GOD...Matt Lauer's voice over is so hard to listen to...

  12. Didn't George W. Bush pull fratboy stunts like that? He was kinda cute back in the day, too; but look what happened to him.

  13. Wait...why does a world class polo player use a drag name?

  15. Reminds me of the scene in My Beautiful Launderette when Johnny and Omar are making it in the back of the launderette and Johnny takes a swig of champagne and spits into Omar's mouth. Nice to see that Harry still doesn't GAS about his "public image".

  16. At $50,000 a head I doubt there were too many "ordinary New Yorkers" there. Give me a break!
