Updated: Kate and Lupo Watch William Play Polo

It was a busy day for the Duchess who joined inner city children in Wrotham, Kent this morning for a camping trip, See today's earlier post for info and photos. Afterwards Kate travelled to Tetbury where William and Harry played a charity polo match at The Beaufort Polo Club.

Kate brought her adorable cocker spainel, Lupo along. Below we see Kate with Autumn and Savannah Philips.

Kate appeared to thoroughly enjoy spending time with Savannah :)

The Princes competed against each other in opposing teams with Harry's team, Zedan Polo, achieving a narrow victory.

The Beaufort Polo Club was formed during the winter of 1928-1929 and has become known as one of the friendliest clubs in England. It is home to the famous Tomlinson polo dynasty and plays host to the first Audi England International match of the summer. The Princes have played polo their regularly over the past number of years.


If any of you are polo enthusiasts, the cub has on online shop where you can purchase items such as the Beaufort BearBaseball cap and clothing items.

It was lovely see Kate attending one of William's matches today. During their pre engagement years she attended as many as possible.

The couple spent the weekend in Highgrove house in Gloucestershire, a residence of Prince Charles and Camilla.

Prince Charles hosts many briefings and receptions at Highgrove. It is the ideal residence for Prince Charles, stunning scenic views and beautiful gardens yet within close proximity to London. Perhaps the royals will have a Fathers Day dinner there later?

Kate wore the same outfit as this morning except for the brown, distressed suede jacket. I do not currently know the designer but will update when it is confirmed.

Kate first wore the £295 Burberry military pocket shirt on July 5 2011 during a visit to Blachford Lake.
