Prince William, in his role as patron of charities SkillForce and the English Schools Swimming Association, took part in the Norfolk Polo Royal Charity match at Langley Abbey Estate.

The match was closely fought throughout and ended in a draw with a score of 4-4-. The Duke of Cambridge played alongside England International player Peter Webb, Scottish player and adventurer Robert Melville, and Clive Reid from Guards Polo Club.

Owner of Langley Abbey and Norfolk Polo Director, Rebecca Townsend, said: “It’s a real privilege and delight to watch the Duke play. It’s also a very special opportunity to help support the work that these amazing charities carry out.”

Leading construction solutions business, Tarmac sponsored the Royal Team and construction aggregates firm GRS sponsored the opposition.
