Louis and Archie’s Polo Playdate

They might be among the youngest Windsors but these royal cousins are grabbing all the attention right now. All eyes were on Prince Louis and Archie Mountbatten-Windsor as the Cambridge and Sussex clans enjoyed an afternoon of polo in Berkshire.

To be fair, Louis and Archie showed limited interest in the sport itself. The new seventh in line to the throne enjoyed a snooze in the arms of his mother, the Duchess of Sussex, while his cousin ran rings around his own mum, the Duchess of Cambridge, as he showed everyone just how well he’s walking.

Louis and Archie’s dads were competing for the Khun Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha Memorial Polo Trophy at the King Power Royal Charity Polo Day held in Berkshire. The event was dedicated to Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, chairman of Leicester City Football Club who died in a helicopter crash last October.

The Duke of Cambridge and the Duke of Sussex were on opposing teams for the match which raised funds and awareness for charities supported by the brothers. The Invictus Games and organisations working in conservation in Africa were among the beneficiaries.

It’s the first time that either Louis or Archie have been spotted supporting their dads at a polo match. Prince George and Princess Charlotte were also there. But while the third and fourth in line to the throne are used to an afternoon of sport, Louis got into the swing of things on his debut with plenty of running around the field at Billingbear Polo Club.

The Duchess of Sussex kept a sleeping Archie well in the shade on on the warm summer’s afternoon, cuddling him throughout their appearance at the polo match.

It’s the second time we’ve seen Archie in a matter of days. On Saturday, the two month old was christened at the Private Chapel of Windsor Castle with several official images released afterwards. Prince Louis has also made several high profile appearances in recent weeks, enjoying his mum’s garden at the Chelsea Flower Show before stealing the show at Trooping the Colour with his enthusiastic debut waves from the Buckingham Palace balcony.
