He’s known for being a bit of a rogue off the field, so it comes as no surprise Prince Harry is exactly the same on the polo field as well, with an Aussie umpire revealing he told the royal to f**k off during a charity match.
Queensland polo player Beau Skerrett had been invited to umpire the 2014 match between Prince William and Prince Harry, and the princes of Malaysia when Harry’s behaviour forced him to step in.

“Harry loses his cool [on the field],” Beau told The Courier-Mail. “He is a spoiled brat.”
While Wills was “the perfect bloke” during the match held at Andrew Lloyd Webber’s UK home, Beau was forced to give Harry a dressing down after things began to get too serious.

“He didn’t take it too well,” said Beau, who has 12 years of polo playing under his belt.
“I think I’m the only guy who ever told him to f**k off in front of a crowd that pay £5000 to shake his hand.”
While there might be a lot of competition on the field, experts say Prince Harry naturally has the polo-playing edge over his older brother for one particular reason.
"William is left handed. But he was determined enough to learn,” Nicholas Colquhoun-Denvers, President of the Federation of International Polo told The Telegraph last year.

"I think that was a brotherly thing. William didn't want to be outdone by his brother, Prince Harry.
"Harry will always be better because he's right handed.”
