Meghan Markle proved to be her husband’s biggest cheerleader once again as Prince Harry combined his love of charity work and polo for a meaningful match.

Harry took part in the Sentebale ISPS Handa Polo Cup at the Royal County of Berkshire Polo Club on Thursday, an event to raise funds and awareness for Sentebale, the foundation set up by the 33-year-old royal and Prince Seeiso of Lesotho in 2006 to help children affected by HIV in Lesotho and Botswana.

Harry played on the Sentebale St. Regis team captained by his pal Nacho Figueras, a polo star who previously participated in the charity match in 2016, against the Royal Salute team, captained by Malcolm Borwick. Meghan attended in a denim dress by Carolina Herrera with Aquazzura “Deneuve” pumps and posed for a photo alongside Figueras and his wife, Delfina.

Earlier this week, Kensington Palace just released never-before-seen photos from the newlywed’s solo trip to Lesotho, Africa, last month, where he opened a school and a house on behalf of Sentebale.

Harry also kicked off a two-day visit to Amsterdam on Monday to attend the International AIDS Conference, where he sat down with young advocates to discuss issues faced by teenagers who have the disease, where he spoke about the benefits of getting young people involved in policy changes and spreading information. With the help of longtime family friend Sir Elton John, 71, Harry also announced the launch of the billion-dollar MenStar Coalition project, a new network of international funders for AIDS research.

Meghan, wearing wearing a cotton gingham Ashland dress by Shoshanna and her favorite white-and-black Madewell x Biltmore Panama hat, was all smiles as she cheered on the brothers at the Audi Polo Challenge in Ascot, England, on June 30. Accompanying her to the Coworth Park Polo Club were friends Serena Williams and her husband Alexis Ohanian, who were both in attendance at Meghan and Harry’s royal wedding in May.

The couple returned to the polo field the following day, on what would have been Princess Diana‘s 57th birthday.

The Audi Polo Challenge likely holds a special place in Meghan and Harry’s hearts: Their appearance at the game last year was the first time the couple attended a public event together, and they marked the milestone with a kiss.
