ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Britain's Prince Harry made his final stop of his week-long tour in the United States in the affluent town of Greenwich, Connecticut on Wednesday (May 15). The prince participated in a charity polo event to benefit "Sentable" -- a non-profit organization that he co-founded with Prince Seeiso of Lesotho to help the African nation's vulnerable children plagued by the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Wrapping up his tour, the prince took a moment to thank Americans for their hospitality. "This is the last day of my tour around the United States. Thank you for a wonderful week. I have witnessed the extraordinary generosity of the people of this great nation." The polo match kicked off shortly after 1500 EDT (1900 GMT) and was held at the polo club founded by American billionaire Peter Brant in 1981. The club has hosted other British royals in the past including his uncle Prince Andrew, Duke of York in 1987. Greenwich is one of the wealthiest towns in the United States and it provided a stark contrast to the two New Jersey beach communities Prince Harry visited on Tuesday (May 14) slammed by Superstorm Sandy.
