Meghan and Archie Cheer on Harry at Charity Polo Match – UPDATED
Meghan and Archie were at the King Power Royal Charity Polo match today to cheer on Prince Harry.
The Duke of Cambridge and The Duke of Sussex played in the King Power Royal Charity Polo Day at the Billingbear Polo Club for the Khun Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha Memorial Polo Trophy.
Below, the Duchess cuddling little Archie while watching the match.
The charity match helped raise funds and awareness for charities supported by Their Royal Highnesses — including African Parks, The Invictus Games Foundation and The Queen’s Commonwealth Trust.
The event honored Khun Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, chairman of the Leicester Football Club, who was killed in a helicopter crash at Leicester Stadium last October. An article from The Guardian last year detailed the “…wide outpourings of grief in Leicester, and in particular tributes to the owner. Vichai bought the club in 2010 and transformed it with his financial backing, with the fairytale success of a first Premier League title in 2016.” Below, just some of the flowers left at the stadium by fans after the crash.

The event raised £1 million ($1.2M USD) for the fifteen charities.
It was a treat to see the cousins together today while the “mums” enjoyed a bit of a chat during the match.

The dress comes with a belt in the same linen fabric. Meghan chose to wear the dress without the belt for a loose, carefree look most likely for comfort and ease on this warm summer day.
