Prince Harry played at a charity polo match in Colorado on Thursday, his first public appearance in the US since the birth of his daughter Lilibet.
Sporting a vibrant light-blue polo shirt and white jodhpurs, the Duke of Sussex appeared to be in a jubilant mood after scoring two goals to help the team representing his charity, Sentebale, come out victorious at the polo match on Thursday, an event press release obtained by Insider said.
He was joined by Nacho Figueras, an Argentine High Polo player and ambassador to the charity.
Sentebale, which Harry co-founded and continues to be a patron of, raises funds for vulnerable children living in Southern Africa. According to its website, Sentebale’s mission is to “support the mental health and wellbeing of children and young people affected by HIV in Lesotho and Botswana.”
The Duke of Sussex’s rare public outing is his first in the US since he and Meghan Markle welcomed their second child Lilibet on June 4.
On July 1, Harry reunited with his brother Prince William in London for the unveiling of the Princess Diana statue, honoring their late mother on what would have been her 60th birthday. The day before, on June 30, he was pictured with Ed Sheeran and British singer Anne Marie at the WellChild Awards at Kew Gardens.
At the garden party, Harry and Sheeran, who welcomed his own daughter Lyra Antarctica last year with wife Cherry Seaborn, bonded over discussions of fatherhood.

According to Hello! Magazine, Sheeran was quick to congratulate Harry on his new baby. “We just had a little girl 10 months ago now,” the singer said, according to the magazine. “You’re still in the trenches now! How do you manage with two?”
To which Harry responded: “Two is definitely a juggle.”
