Last month we saw a bunch of photos of Prince Harry of the United Kingdom touring parts of the world in celebration of his grandmother Queen Elizabeth, II’s 60th year as reigning monarch. The photos we saw last month (HERE, HERE and HERE) were all very fun, very lighthearted. Today we get to see previously unseen photos from that tour that are far from fun and lighthearted. While in Brazil, Prince Harry played a match of polo and during the game, one of his opponents suffered a scary accident. Harry quickly jumped to aid his fallen compatriot and lend a helping hand … proving, yet again, that Harry is a hero. Check out the photos below and see for yourselves.
These dramatic pictures show how Prince Harry came to the rescue of an injured rival polo player during a match in Brazil on his recent tour. The quick-thinking 27-year-old leaped from his horse to help U.S. businessman Bash Kazi, who had been knocked unconscious after a dramatic collision during the charity match in Campinas last month. Harry gently put Mr Kazi into the recovery position, while other riders looked on. The British Red Cross said the Prince’s quick-thinking actions could have saved his opponent’s life. A grateful Mr Kazi told the Washington Post: ‘Prince Harry was the first one off his horse, doing the right thing, turning me over to make sure I regained consciousness.’ He called the royal ‘a fabulous person’ and ‘such a gentleman’ for helping him. The amateur polo player was taking part in the match organised by Prince Harry when his horse collided with another. ‘I remember waking up with these piercing blue eyes looking at me,’ he said. Mr Kazi is thought to have had minor concussion, but was later given the all clear after a CT scan … Mr Kazi now hopes to lure Harry back to America for another charity match, adding: ‘I look forward to squaring off with him in the U.S.’ The game – which the prince’s team won 6-3, was a fundraiser for Sentebale, Harry’s South African charity, which he co-founded in 2006.
Hello, we’ve got a bona fide heroic prince here. Sigh. Not only is Harry a vigilant military man, not only is he a charmer … but he’s also a sporting hero. It’s hard not to like the guy, I tells ya. Again, sigh.
