Despite the game loss, money was raised for charity, maybe that's why Prince William was seen still in high spirits

Sunday marked the Beaufort Polo Match, a match whose purpose is similar to other recent charity events, like the Michael Carrick Charity Match, and the Manchester Benefit Concert, in that they are all held to pursue the humble yet purposeful mission of using one's stature or influence to help raise both awareness and funds for worthy causes.

This particular Polo match in aid of Child Bereavement UK and Fields in Trust was held for the fourth time by the same sponsors Maserati and La Martina, it's polo apparel partner, was played by the #Duke of Cambridge, Prince William the patron of the charities.

Despite the great underlying purpose for the game, and the fact that finding a winner is still something to pursue, it sure didn't come easily for the Prince's team. Playing alongside England international star player Malcolm Borwick as well as Bruce Merivale-Austin and Henry Porter they tried but were still unable to win at games end. The prince's team lost 7-6½ to Dhamani 1969. His opponents in the star-studded event included HH The Maharajah of Jaipur, Karan Thapar, Nina Clarkin and Olly Tuthill.

The Maserati Polo Tour continues on July 22 with the start of the 46° Torneo Internacional de Polo in Sotogrande, Spain.

The Queen's great-granddaughter played with the Prince, who is her godfather. She was also pictured performing handstands with her cousin five -year-old Savannah Isla Phillips, daughter of Peter Phillips and wife Autumn.

Last year Mia stole the show when she was pictured holding the Queen’s handbag in a family snap marking the Queen's landmark 90th birthday. Mike Tindall, Mia's 38-year-old former rugby player and world cup winner dad revealed the events that went down before the picture, “It just happened at the right time," he said. "She was being a bit naughty. The Queen said... ‘just hold the handbag now’ and she did that." He also revealed that Mia by just being herself proved to be really helpful to the couple as they got over two earlier miscarriages before Mia came along. Mia is said to love the outdoors and started horse riding when she was just two.

It's not every day that you get to meet with members of the royal family, events like these provide the public with the chance to be able to see the royals doing normal things you and I do, like playing and having fun with your kids. As it turns out when it comes to royals there is always a certain curiosity about them, their lives and how they deal with issues, or even which issues they face... after all, there should be a difference between royals and regular people, right? #Prince William
