Prince Harry of the UK will be in Singapore on 5 June to play in a charity polo match, said a Kensington Palace tweet on Tuesday (2 May).

He will take part in the 2017 Sentebale Royal Salute Polo Cup, an annual fundraising event for the Sentebale charity group, which will be held at the Singapore Polo Club.

The organisation, started by Prince Harry and Prince Seeiso of Lesotho in 2006, helps vulnerable children and young people affected by HIV in Botswana and Lesotho in southern Africa.

This is the first time the event will be held in South-east Asia, according to the Sentebale website.

Prince Harry will also visit Sydney in early June, where he will attend events to celebrate the city’s hosting of the 2018 Invictus Games, said the palace in a separate tweet.
