Royal Visit: Prince William gets polo trophy, kiss from Kate

July 9, 2011 |  6:13 pm


As if we needed more proof of royal mania, consider the polo crowd that swarmed to see Prince William receive a trophy. The prince was presented with a 15-pound, 18-inch-high, sterling-silver award (with decorative horseshoe motifs) by Tiffany and Co. for winning the Foundation Polo Challenge (in which he was one of the highest-scoring players).

Wife Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, handed out the awards. (She shook each player's hand, but William got a kiss on each cheek.)

Indeed, it was a good day to be royal: The Prince's Foundation team beat team Audi 5-3. All players received a Tiffany and Co. silver and mahogany bowl.

And it was a good day for a photo op: The trophy presentation was definitely one of the highlights of the day.
