Prince postpones polo trip amid Arab turmoil

March 5, 2011 12:09:40 AM PST
Unrest in the Arab world prompted Prince Harry to postpone his visit to Dubai. He had planned to travel there later this month to play polo.

Harry's office says he felt it would be insensitive to participate in a sporting event while the region is dealing with more pressing matters.

The Sentebale Polo Cup that was scheduled to coincide with the royal visit has been canceled, along with Bahrain's Grand Prix.
