Those polo matches (and they do involve some physical exertion) earned big fat cheques for Sentebale, WellChild (Harry's charities) and Tusk for William's at this latest Audi event. It's been a recognised form of raising big bucks for their charities for years, and Charles's too when he used to play. So playing polo can be for a good cause.

Good on them, but it's not like they really open up the grounds for other people. WHK always in subtle ways make it clear that they are the golden ones and there isn't room for anyone else but their own chosen who are deemed good enough by them. It's also clear that workers from their charities are not among the chosen ones and that those in need are not good enough to be invited as honored guests. It's clear that wounded veterans are not good enough to come to the games and sip champagne and mingle with high level people and apparently the charity workers only exist to do the scut work. That is the real issue that picks at me. They go out of their way to show how glorious they are and how utterly perfect their lives are and how wonderful they are, which isn't really bringing in outsiders who might otherwise be isolated socially.

^Great post, totally agree.  They are all about themselves, every time. Loads of charities could do with help, not just their chosen few.  They make me sick, Diana sure spawned two nasty, unpleasant children, that much is, to me, quite obvious.

Skin-tight jodhpurs. Champers galore. After Harry and Meghan's kiss, why our frisky royals can't resist a spot of passion at the polo

Thanks; I for one and disgusted at how charity work is clearly now either an act of penance or in fact is a job they do only because they have to. I have been meditating on the exact point of resentment and that is it; they are the golden crew and everyone else is just a mass of people they deign to acknowledge.

Harry visits vets at home and at his charities, over the years there have been tons of photos on Twitter showing this.

Polo matches are for celebs and other wealthy people to donate to charities which are sometimes for charities (when the Princes play) and their donations and the entrance fees go towards the charities. If the stands were packed with those that couldn't afford the entrance fees the object of the polo match would be lost.

Willie and Harry do change what charities they play for sometimes but they are always in the umbrella organisation of their Royal Foundation. They can't play for every single charity in Great Britain or the world or visit every single charity in the UK. That would be impossible.

Royals from the Queen down choose their charities and support them as Patrons. Sometimes dinners and lunches are held and royals are present simply to get wealthy people to attend and donate big bucks to the charities concerned. That's the way charities work. If these big dinners were held for wage earners they might get hundreds of pounds/dollars. With the wealthy they often get hundreds of thousands donated.

Harry's IG is full of wounded veterans from all walks of life and he mingles with them. There have been plenty of photos over the years of him going to killed ex servicemen's families homes for tea etc in his off time. WellChild events aren't crammed with the wealthy, but with ordinary sick children and their families.

The tea party for dead servicemen's families to be held at BP later this month isn't going to be packed with the widows and children of the wealthy but the loved ones of soldiers who died for their country.

Why then doesn't he bring these people into his posher side of life and give those less fortunate something to really remember. I get it that Harry hangs out with the less fortunate, but he does not bring them into his better way of life and he could do that easily. It's clear that Harry isn't any different, he just manages to go a few extra steps.

Royal invite 'ordinary' people from their charities to their weddings nowadays. It happened at Willy and Kate's wedding at the Abbey. I guess that was something for them to remember.

Charity workers are present at Heads Together events including fund raising dinners. As I've said before royals attend dinners and play polo to bring in big bucks in for charities. They aren't responsible for ticket distribution to these events.

What is Harry to do? He doesn't go to many grand fund raising dinners, he lives in a modest home at KP, where he had previously resided in a one bedroom flat. Is he to invite everyone he meets who is in deprived circumstances home to tea to give them something to remember?

You don't think the ex servicemen's kids who are invited to a tea at BP later this month, hosted by WK and H will remember that?  Like 99% of others Harry's friends come from his working circles and his growing up years,as well as, in his case, his army career.

Is he to deliberately seek out working class people to be his friends, whether they have a lot in common with him or not, because that would be more worthy? I'll bet he would be attacked on Royal forums for doing that for PR purposes!
