Prince Harry mourns beloved pony’s deathMay 10th, 2010 - 12:10 pm ICT by ANI
London, May 10 (ANI): Prince Harry is shattered over the death of his pony, Drizzle, who died of a heart attack during a polo match.
Harry, 25, was riding his 10-year-old mare Drizzle, moments before she suffered a fatal heart attack.
After noticing that the mare was struggling during the match, Harry rode her over to the side, but she died minutes later.
“William and Harry are very, very upset - Harry was in tears,” The Sun quoted a source as saying.
The death of the horse, which was treasured by Prince William too, cast a gloomy look over the glamorous Audi polo event at Coworth Park, which was attended by several celebrities including close friends - Matt LeBlanc and Natalie Imbruglia.
“Drizzle was taken ill and sadly died. The Princes are very upset,” the Princes’ spokesperson said.
Drizzle had been stabled near the Highgrove estate in Tetbury, Gloucs, after Prince Charles gave up competitive polo in 2005.
William and Harry stayed until the end of the match, which the Prince William Team won. They mingled with guests afterwards but didn’t stay for lunch.
Royal sources said that this was the first time they had hosted guest tables for their recently launched charitable foundation, and hence a very important event. (ANI)
