Prince Harry Falls Off His Horse and Throws a Temper Tantrum

Prince Harry Visits Barbados - Day 3

The crowd at a Caribbean charity polo match yesterday was a bit surprised when the dashing Prince Harry‘s horse fell down and tossed him off, and though uninjured, Harry began throwing a fit about the tumble.

According to NY Daily News, he slammed down his mallet, ripped off his helmet and started hitting it.

It turns out, the night before Prince Harry had made a bet with a businessman that if he fell off his horse, the businessman could buy his horse Sentebale for $100,000.

But true to his word, the businessman didn’t end up buying Sentebale, as it was the horse who fell, not Harry.

The match raised money for Sentebale, a charity Harry co-founded in honor of his late mother, Princess Diana, which works to help children with HIV/AIDS in Africa.

“It looks like we may have raised [about $695,300] for the vulnerable children of Lesotho, so I couldn’t be more pleased,” Harry said.

After the match, Harry enjoyed a “spot” of fishing and later hit the club to raise money at a benefit for Haiti.

Hmm, this seems to be a pattern with Prince Harry: charity first, party later! Or both! Hey, it’s called multi-tasking.
