Nothing can stop him! Prince Harry fell of his polo pony — twice! — on Saturday, Nov. 28, at the Sentebale Royal Salute Polo Cup in Cape Town, South Africa, but he got right back up in the saddle.

The royal, 31, was thrown headfirst, but he got up and got back on the horse. Then toward the end of the match, he fell off his mount once again  but, fortunately, he was not hurt.

The tumbles come during his busy trip to Africa. On Thursday, Nov. 26, the royal hottie opened the Mamohato Children’s Centre in Lesotho, where he spoke about the loss of his mother, Princess Diana, who died in a car accident in 1997.

“I knew there would always be a gaping hole that could never be filled,” he said.

Last month, Harry spoke about how his late mother inspired his love for charity work.

“It’s equally important, if not more so, to do the stuff behind the scenes,” he said of his royal duties. “It’s something that our mother did a lot. And that’s the time you really get to learn. You get the experiences and you actually get the honest truth out of people.”
