A long-standing royal tradition between Prince William and Prince Harry could have ended – as the Duke of Cambridge played polo without his brother last week.

Wills played in the Out-Sourcing Inc. Royal Charity Polo Cup in Wind on July 9, his first charity polo match since 2019.

Though William looked at ease, he cut a lonely figure without Harry – with the pair playing charity events together regularly since 2007.

During the previous game, the Duke of Sussex went head-to-head with his brother for the 12th year in a row.

It was the first time that his wife Meghan Markle had stepped out with baby Archie.

Kate Middleton was also there to cheer on her husband, along with kids Prince George, Prince Louis, and Princess Charlotte.

Wills triumphed in the King Power Royal Charity Polo Day, held in honour of late Leicester City owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha.

Two years earlier, the pair competed in the Jerudong Trophy charity polo match together at Cirencester Park Polo Club.

Regarding William’s recent match, a Kensington Palace statement confirmed: "Money generated will go to organisations including Centrepoint, East Anglia Children’s Hospices (EACH), Family Action, Fields in Trust, The Forward Trust, London Air Ambulance, Mountain Rescue England and Wales, and Tusk."

Since 2007, the brothers had raised more than £10 million for charity with the polo games – making Harry’s recent absence even more heartrending.

However, he did make it back to the UK earlier this month for the first time since Prince Philip’s funeral.

He and William unveiled a statue in of Princess Diana in the grounds of Kensington Palace, on what would have been her 60th birthday.

A source afterwards told US Weekly: "William and Harry spent the morning before the statue unveiling looking through old keepsakes, notes from Diana and bonding.

“They have absolutely turned a new page in their relationship and have started the healing.

“Everyone around them was thrilled to see how close they were on the day of the statue unveiling.”

Harry and Meghan recently welcomed baby Lilibet into the world, and are taking time away from their charity Archewell to get to know her.

Unlike their two-year-old son Archie, no photos of five-week-old Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor have yet been released to the public.
