A Look Back at Prince Harry's U.S. Takeover

Blimey! Prince Harry's States tour was a bloody success.

After sparking media mayhem during his last trip, the red-headed royal breezed through this seven-day tour across America on his best behavior — from honoring military families wth Michelle Obama in Washington, to participating in cheerleader pyramids in Colorado, to giving boardwalk games a go on the Jersey Shore, to even hitting a home run in Harlem.

Harry wrapped up the weeklong, cross-country jaunt in the upscale Greenwich, Conn., where he picked up a polo stick for a good cause. After the rain turned to sunshine on Wednesday afternoon, His Royal Highness joined around 400 invited guests — including bold-names like model Karolina Kurkova, socialite Olivia Palermo and designer Jason Wu — at the Greenwich Polo Club for a fanfare-filled match benefiting Sentebale, a charity he co-founded to raise support for at-risk youth in the small African nation of Lesotho.

Before hitting the green, Harry gave a speech to the invitation-only crowd, during which he thanked Americans for the "extraordinary generosity" with which he was greeted throughout his visit. And as the perfect cherry on top to a triumphant trip, the Wild Winsor scored a goal to help his team take the win, trumping the St. Regis squad 4 to 3. The real victory? The match raised $1 million for charity.

Now as the third heir to the British throne jets back over the pond, look back on his American adventures. Till next time, Big H!
