Not even losing a cricket match to his big brother can wipe that smile off Prince Harry's handsome face! 

The 29-year-old royal, along with brother Prince William, participated in a charity match today. Held at the Windsor Great Park, the game was played with a goal of raising money for United For Wildlife, an organization that seeks to put an end to illegal wildlife trade for which the Duke of Cambridge serves as president. 

The handsome brothers played for opposing teams—Harry for the Royal Household and William for United for Wildlife—as they competed against each other and were joined by former professional cricket players. 

Staying true to his cheeky form, the red-headed-royal was photographed flashing a priceless grin on the field, appearing as if he's ready to jump for joy as he claps his hands with excitement.

While there's no apparent rivalry in the pic, William and his teammates were the clear winners of the day, as Harry, along with the rest of the Royal Household team, was bowled out for 145. 

Pics of the event, along with Vine videos documenting the action, were all shared on the United For Wildlife Twitter page using the hashtag #WhoseSideAreYouOn in an effort to generate a conversation on social media with regards to the illegal wildlife trade. 

UFW is made up of the seven largest conservation charities in the world, including WWF and Conservation International, and was set up by The Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry.

Back in June, Prince William announced his plans to team up with David Beckham for the #WhoseSideAreYouOn joint charity venture.

"Around the world, the illegal wildlife trade is responsible for the slaughter of tens of thousands of animals a year, pushing some of our most beloved species to the brink of extinction," William, who has visited Africa on behalf of the cause, addressed reporters at the launch of the campaign. "Our children should not live in a world without elephants, tigers, lions and rhinos. Enough is enough. It is time to choose between critically endangered species and the criminals who kill them for money."
