Prince Harry got himself a super cute cheerleader at his latest charity polo match.

As viewers across the pond prepared to watch Saturday's 2017 Kentucky Derby, the 32-year-old royal mounted his own horse and took part in the Audi Polo Challenge at Coworth Park Polo Club in Ascot, England. His girlfriend, actress Meghan Markle, was seen cheering him from the sidelines, wearing a long navy dress and white jacket. It marked the couple's first public event together.

This marks the first public event the two have attended together, although they were not photographed together.

Kensington Palace confirmed their relationship in November. They have since spent time together in Toronto, where she lives and films Suits, his native London, Norway and Jamaica, where they attended his best friend's wedding.

Saturday's polo match benefits the Sentebale and WellChild children's organizations, of which he is a patron. Harry had co-founded the former group with Prince Seeiso of the kingdom of Lesotho in Africa.

Harry and brother Prince William are avid polo players and will this summer take part in a series of polo matches to raise funds and awareness for several charities they support as royal patrons, including Sentebale and WellChild, Kensington Palace said in a statement Saturday.

The two have raised more than£10 ($13 million) by playing in charity polo matches since 2007.
