With the anticipation building just days before his wife Kate gives birth, Prince William didn't reveal any nervousness Saturday as he faced yet another challenge – taking on his younger brother Prince Harry at polo.
The princely pair competed at a Kent and Curwen-sponsored event at the Hampshire estate of Phantom of the Opera composer Andrew Lloyd-Webber and which benefitted William's African charity Tusk Trust and Harry's Sentebale organization, which helps disadvantaged kids in Lesotho.

Prince Harry, a pop star? It's true – and all for his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth.
The prince taps a tambourine – and, in the video (view below), can be seen shaking a leg – as part of a new song especially created to mark the Queen's Diamond Jubilee and her commitment to the Commonwealth.
Called "Sing," the new anthem is the brainchild of singer Gary Barlow and Phantom of the Opera and Cats composer Andrew Lloyd Webber.
Barlow, who is lead vocalist of the pop group Take That and the head judge on the U.K. version of The X Factor, went around the world capturing the music and musicians of the Commonwealth. His talent haul includes an African children's choir, New Zealand soprano Hayley Westenra and reggae greats Sly and Robbie.

The composer behind the hit musicals The Phantom of the Opera, Cats, Jesus Christ Superstar and Evita is being treated for prostate cancer, it was announced.
Andrew Lloyd Webber, 61, is expected to be back at work in a couple of months after tests detected the disease early, according to his reps.
In a brief statement to PEOPLE, they said: "The condition is in its very early stages. Andrew is now undergoing treatment and expects to be fully back at work before the end of the year."
At the moment, the musician – who was knighted by Queen Elizabeth and then awarded a peerage, giving him the formal title Baron Lloyd-Webber – is preparing Love Never Dies, a sequel to Phantom of the Opera that is scheduled to open in London in March.

Composer Andrew Lloyd Webber was cleared in a plagiarism suit Tuesday when a jury in New York concluded he did not copy the melody for the "Phantom of the Opera" theme from a Baltimore songwriter. "I have been totally vindicated," Lloyd Webber said. "This is a victory not just for me but for all songwriters who have been plagued by contingency lawyers. Perhaps we will now see the end of these money-grabbing spurious cases." Ray Repp, the songwriter who had accused Lloyd Webber of stealing his 1978 song "Till You," stood dejected in the federal courtroom in Manhattan after the jury returned with its decision. "I have no doubt whatsoever that's my song," said Repp, 56, who first brought the lawsuit in 1990. Repp has written dozens of religious songs and has 11 albums to his credit.
