Jodie Kidd And Prince Harry’s Polo Kiss Off: Photos
IN our quest for Alternative Olympic Sports, we went to see two polo matches in two days.
First we went to the MINT Polo in the Park. The “park” is not as egalitarian as it seems, referring not to Dollis Hill’s Gladstone Park nor Liverpool’s Princes Park but to the snooty Hurlingham Park. The highlight was spotting people in the crowd (we didn’t see many), and seeing Jodie Kidd and her boyfriend, Argentinian polo player Andrea Vianini, share a kiss.
The difference in their heights – he is a few hands shorter than her – made us wonder if Andrea (girl’s name) gets into the mood by riding Jodie about their lounge while wielding a largish ladle.
Next day, we went to a match in aid of the Centerpoint charity at the Cirencester Park Polo Ground, Gloucestershire. What more to sums up the country than the mansioned on stabled horses raising money for people with no roof over their heads?
