It's round two for Prince Harry and Argentine polo star Nacho Figueras.

A year after his first-ever formal visit to the United States, the royal is once again crossing the pond to compete in a polo match for charity.

Harry, 25, plans to go head-to-head against Figueras, who competed against the Brit last year and is also the face of Ralph Lauren's Polo Fragrances, in the third annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic, taking place June 27 on New York's historic Governors Island.

In keeping with long-time tradition, guests are asked to wear classic polo style: hats for women and summer suits for men. Organizers will also have an area that is free and open to the public. (Ticket info at

As yet unknown is whether the prince's on-again girlfriend, Chelsy Davy, will be on hand to cheer him on.

The polo classic, which had a star-studded turnout last year with Madonna, Kate Hudson, designers Marc Jacobs and Donna Karan and others, will benefit Sentebale, a charity founded in 2006 by Harry and Prince Seeiso of Lesotho, Africa, to help improve lives of underprivileged, at-risk children in Lesotho.
