Prince Harry

Sure, Prince Harry isn't a knight—he was riding a brown horse in lieu of the requisite white one—and his outfit was comprised of a polo uniform rather than any shining armor, but, well, the visual still stands.

The rugged royal rushed to the rescue of a fellow polo player during a recent charity match in Brazil, when a member of the opposing team collided with another player and was knocked unconscious off his horse.

Prince William may be the search and rescue pilot, but he's clearly not the only brother who can play hero...

Harry's heroics were chronicled on, of all places, the blog of the British Red Cross this morning, which breathlessly reported that during his travels last month, the prince "leapt off his horse and ran over" to the fallen player and provided some "textbook first aid help."

The damsel in distress man who got saved by Harry was businessman Bash Kazi, who was knocked unconscious in the crash and landed face down on the pitch. Enter Harry, who incidentally has been trained in first aid by the British Red Cross (and suddenly its boasting of his life-saving techniques is made clear), who gently rolled Kazi over to his side and massaged his neck until he was able to breathe on his own accord again.

"Prince Harry was the first one off his horse, doing the right thing," Bash said later, going on to declare Harry "a fabulous person" and "such a gentleman."

Good luck finding anyone who'd argue with those sentiments.
