||Harry's achievements on the academic front may have been relatively modest, but when it comes to athletic pursuits he is in a league of his own. The adventurous royal has repeatedly proved his prowess on the ski slopes and the rugby field, though it is in polo that he has made the biggest impression.
According to one of Britain's top players, Major Mark McCann, the young royal is so good he could play professionally. "He has got a great eye for the ball, he is young, he rides well and has natural talent," affirmed the British Forces team chairman.
A few eyebrows were raised when Harry brought up the possibility of devoting his gap year to the game, but the mischievous royal later confessed he only suggested the idea to "wind my father up".
