GREENWICH, Conn. (AP) — Britain's Prince Harry capped his weeklong trip to the U.S. by winning a charity polo match at a star-studded event in Connecticut.

The prince's team won 4-3 after he scored a game-tying goal Wednesday afternoon at the Greenwich Polo Club. The match benefited Sentebale, the charity he co-founded to help poor children and AIDS orphans in the small African nation of Lesotho.

The invitation-only polo match drew hundreds of guests including supermodel Karolina Kurkova and fashion designers Jason Wu and Valentino.

Prince Harry said he's had a wonderful week in the U.S. and thanked the American people for their generosity. He said without that support, many children in Lesotho would be lacking basic needs such as food, shelter and care.
