Here's What Prince Harry Really Gets Up To On The Weekends

Prince Harry hasn't had many carefree times in the past few years. While he's certainly reached new highs in his life, marrying Meghan Markle and becoming a father to two children, Archie Harrison and Lilibet Diana (via Vanity Fair), these highs have come after pretty rough times. 

Its been a whirlwind since the Duke of Sussex and his wife stepped down as senior working members of the royal family in 2020 and left the U.K. for California (via Time). One of the main reasons Harry left the royal family was to protect Markle who was having suicidal thoughts from being under such immense scrutiny from the press, a decision the couple is proud of (via Harper's Bazaar). Harry himself has suffered from depression which largely stemmed from witnessing what happened to his mother, Princess Diana while in the limelight (via The New York Times).

Thankfully, after undergoing therapy and making healthy life changes, Harry has learned to enjoy his life and is working on getting enough leisure time to strengthen his mindset.

If you or anyone you know is having suicidal thoughts, please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline​ at​ 1-800-273-TALK (8255)​.

According to People, Prince Harry is a member of the Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club and he regularly participates in polo matches, a game he's been playing his whole life. On weekends, you can find the duke playing on a team known as "Los Padres." One country club member told People that Harry is "just one of the guys" on the field. Another said, "His presence this season has brought a really cool vibe to the club, but it hasn't changed the way the games have been played — it's business as usual and all the teams are fighting for the win."

While he is known as a fierce competitor by his peers, perhaps the most touching comment was about his tender side. One club member commented, "He is also extremely caring to the horses that he is playing and never hesitates to give them the praise that they deserve."
