William was on the opposite team to his brother, Prince Harry, at the event held at musical impresario Andrew Lloyd Webber's Berkshire estate yesterday.

It's not far from Bucklebury, Kate's family home. Her parents still live there and it's where she plans to stay after baby's arrival.

Andrew Lloyd Webber's event - called the Kent and Curwen Royal Charity Polo Cup - was held in aid of Sentebale and the Tusk Trust charities, which the Princes support.

Harry's team won the game with a last-minute goal, and he was awarded the most valuable player award.

Meanwhile bookmakers Coral said the odds on Kate giving birth today had shortened from 5/1 to 4/1 after a flurry of bets.
