Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, will come to Rome on Friday 24 May for the Sentebale ISPS Handa Polo Cup, according to an announcement by Buckingham Palace.

Sentebale is the charity providing support for children suffering from AIDS in southern Africa that Prince Harry established in 2006 with Lesotho's Prince Lerotholi Seeiso.

Sentebale, of which Harry is patron, organises a charity match each year but this is the first time it will take place in Italy.

Prince Harry visited Italy in 2014, to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Battle of Monte Cassino, and he also visited Italy another time, privately, as a child.
