Princes William and Harry were competing in the Audi Polo Challenge over the weekend, helping to raise awareness of the charities they represent, including African conservation charity Tusk which operates in Kenya.

While most of the press attention was focused on Prince Harry and his girlfriend Meghan Markle, their attendance as a couple did help raise the profile of the event the Coworth Park Polo Club in Berkshire, England.

“Their Royal Highnesses have taken part in polo fixtures in support of their charities since 2007 and have continued each year since, raising over £10 million ($13 million) for charitable causes to date,” Kensington Palace said in a statement Saturday.

The event was attended by a slew of A-list celebrities including Eddie Redmayne and his wife Hannah Bagshawe, “The Crown” actor Matt Smith, and actor Tom Hardy were on hand Saturday while Emma Stone appeared at the event Sunday.

The star studded polo match kicks off the social season in London every spring and Tusk CEO Charlie Mayhew was one of the charity representatives who spoke at the event.
