GREENWICH, Conn. -- The Greenwich Polo Club will play host to Prince Harry on Wednesday. But if you're hoping to get a glimpse of the red-haired third in line to the throne, you're out of luck.

The guest list has been kept small and private: It is rumored to be capped at 400.

The polo club was founded by billionaire and polo player Peter Brant, who is married to Stephanie Seymour, the former Victoria's Secret and Sports Illustrated model.

Prince Harry will compete in the fourth Sentebale Royal Salute Polo Cup at the Greenwich Polo Club. Proceeds from the event go to Prince Harry's charity Sentebale, which raises money for children affected by AIDS/HIV and poverty in the African nation of Lesotho.

Harry started Sentebale -- which means "forget me not" in the African language of Sesotho -- with Prince Seeiso, of Lesotho, in memory of their mothers in 2006.

The polo match will wrap up Harry's weeklong tour of the states, which started last Thursday with a visit to Washington, D.C., and included stops at the Wounded Warriors Games in Colorado Springs, Colo., and visits to parts of New Jersey devastated by Superstorm Sandy as well as events to promote British tourism in New York City.

Established in 1981, the Greenwich Polo Club hosts public USPA high-goal polo matches on Sundays in June, July and September, according to its website. The club is located on North Street in backcountry Greenwich.

Founder Peter Brant is an avid art collector and horseman. He owns White Birch Paper Company and Brant Publications Inc., and his fortune is estimated at $2.7 billion.
