During the round robin tournament, Harry took to the field and scored the first goal for the Sentebale team. He was later spotted laughing with his opponents after he missed the ball.

Harry scored five goals throughout the tournament, and the commentator praised the Duke, gushing: "He went coast to coast, like buttered toast."

"We've raised over $10 million over the years, and to have Harry here is absolutely everything," continued Richard.

The Duke also shared how the team was "proud of the support we are able to give the young people of Lesotho and Botswana to feel empowered, healthy, resilient, and able to thrive".

"The funds raised this year will be invested in these communities at a critical time, as inequalities have been exacerbated by the pandemic," he added.

"We are enormously grateful to our partners and supporters here today, especially our long-standing title sponsor, ISPS Handa, for making the day possible."

Founded in 2006, Sentebale raises awareness and funds to support children and young people in southern Africa whose lives have been affected by extreme poverty, inequality, HIV/AIDS and recently COVID-19.
