Posted: Updated:

GREENWICH, Conn. (AP) — Britain's Prince Harry complimented the American people for their generosity and touted the successes of his charity for African children as he wrapped up a weeklong trip to the U.S. in Connecticut.

The prince is in Greenwich on Wednesday to compete at the Greenwich Polo Club to benefit 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 gave a speech before the match saying that he's witnessed the "extraordinary generosity" of Americans during his trip and that he's had a wonderful week.

The polo teams hit the field shortly after 3 p.m.
