Match Point

Horses, hats, and bottles of bubbly. Brits know what they’re doing when it comes to partying during polo matches. Get a crash course in equestrian escapades during Westworld’s Polo Party.

Expect gaggles of ladies in full regalia (no crazy-ass Princess Beatrice hats, we hope) scrambling for the attention of one redheaded royal who could be attending. That’s right. Event organizers have extended an invitation to Prince Harry in hopes that the polo player will take to the field. Whether or not the third in line to the British throne shows up, it’s a good excuse to sip mimosas and spend a day talking in a phony accent.
