Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to make recreational side trip on Los Angeles business visit
LOS ANGELES (AP) ' The prince will duke it out in the game of kings.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are making a recreational detour on their busy weekend business trip to Los Angeles on Saturday, when they will attend a charity polo match in the swanky coastal city of Santa Barbara.
Both Prince William and his brother, Prince Harry, regularly play polo during the summer months. The horseback sport, sometimes referred to as the game of kings, is known for its fast pace, dangerous maneuvers and exclusivity.
Saturday's match will take place at the posh Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club, about 100 miles northwest of Los Angeles. For the price of a $4,000 ticket, guests can schmooze briefly with the prince and princess and watch William lead his fellow polo players into competition.
