Reportedly the brothers are going to cut back on their charity polo matches in 2019.
Princes William and Harry to reduce polo appearances next year – Royal Central


Quote:
Speaking of support for charities, the polo-playing Princes are doing it for more than just the exercise; since 2007, they have raised more than £10 million for charity, and last year Prince Harry raised over $1 million dollars playing in the Sentebale Polo Cup for his African charity. A fair proportion of the money is raised from corporate sponsors, who use the polo events as hospitality events where they can entertain existing and potential clients in the knowledge that they will be at events where the Princes will be present, and who knows potentially their families as well. It is understood that Prince William and Prince Harry are aiming to raise over £1million for every match they play next year.

This morning, The Duke of Cambridge is hosting a reception at Buckingham Palace to recognise the extraordinary contribution made by British rescue divers and support staff to the Tham Luang cave rescue effort in Thailand earlier this year.

On 23 June, the football team were trapped in a flash flood inside Tham Luang, 4km from the cave’s entrance. An international effort including British cave divers transported the boys through flooded, narrow sections of the cave in the dark using guide ropes, rescuing them all.

The Duke of Cambridge met with staff who provided support for the divers during the rescue mission. This vital group helped with everything from sourcing dive equipment to booking flights, arranging visas, providing medical advice and fundraising.

Today’s reception has been organised in association with @mountrescueuk, of whom The Duke is Patron, and the British Cave Rescue Council.

Yes. It's beautiful to see. Marriage to Kate and fatherhood has really been the making of William. He is very happy, content and comfortable in his life.

William talked yesterday about some of his mental health struggles and the mother of a teenage he tried to save shares her story with the Mirror.

Quote:
Still struggling with the unimaginable pain of losing her teenage son, devastated Sarah Lea found comfort in an unexpected source – Prince William.

The royal was part of the air ambulance team that tried to save 16-year-old Robbie when he accidentally drowned while swimming with pals.

Sarah did not know until the next day about William’s involvement in the rescue bid when a friend told her: “A prince tried to save your prince.”

And the 33-year-old praised the former helicopter pilot for speaking out about his own struggles with seeing youngsters die in the course of his work – hoping it will raise awareness about the mental trauma of grieving for a child.

She said: “I can’t thank Prince William enough. For what he did to try to save my son on that terrible day and for now speaking out on mental health issues.

“It shows our future king is human. It was a brave thing to do.”

A palace source said: “Prince William was involved in a number of sensitive cases where children didn’t survive which had a profound effect on him. He feels speaking about it has not only helped him but hopes it will help others in similar positions.”
