PLAYING POLO WITH PRINCE WILLIAM CAN COST AN ARM AND A LEG
Prince William and Kate will only be spending three days in Southern California during their US visit in July, but some of William’s time will be on horseback. He’s a sucker for polo and when the Santa Barbara Polo Club invited him to their 100th anniversary weekend, he accepted. Our friend and royals watcher from London, Richard Mineards, who is now the society columnist for the Montecito Journal, had a hand in making this happen. Richard says that William and Kate will have a $4000 ticket fund raising event for charity as well as an exhibition polo game in which club members are invited to play with the future king for (estimated) $100,000. (Keep in mind some of the world’s wealthiest polo players have homes in Santa Barbara and they’ll be fighting for this opportunity.) William loves any excuse to play polo and all the money goes to William and Harry’s charities. We wonder if the royal pair will stay at Oprah’s house.
