Prince Harry Observes Moment of Silence for Victims in London's Attack
Solemn Prince Harry observes a minute's silence with his teammates before taking part in the Sentebale Royal Salute Polo Cup in Singapore
Prince Harry's charity fundraising polo match in Singapore has fallen silent in tribute to the victims of the London terrorist attack.
Before the match began, the players and spectators observed a minute's silence in memory of the seven killed and dozens injured when pedestrians were mowed down by a van on London Bridge before the attackers went on a stabbing rampage.
Harry hopes to raise £1 million from the polo event for his charity Sentebale's work with HIV positive children in Lesotho and Botswana, as well as other projects helping vulnerable youngsters.
After riding on to the pitch, the players observed a minute's silence after the national anthems of Singapore and Britain were played. The compere announced the tribute, saying it was "a mark of respect for all the victims and those affected by the terror attacks in London on Saturday night".
