MANHATTAN — Prince Harry fell from his horse during a polo match on Governors Island on Sunday.

The English prince was unhurt, and he got right back on his mount after dusting himself off.

He later went on to score a goal in the match, but his team still lost, 7-6, in extra time.

The match was part of the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic out on Governors Island, and it attracted A-list celebrities and throngs of the public.

Singer Mary J. Blige was there, wearing a broad sun hat, as was music mogul Russell Simmons, real estate heiress Ivanka Trump, and actors Val Kilmer and Susan Sarandon.

"Just met Prince Harry....sigh!" tweeted Trump, who was there with her husband Jared Kushner. She then wrote that she was sitting next to Matchbox 20 frontman Rob Thomas and his wife.

"Rob and his wife are lovely," she wrote.

The Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic capped a whirlwind tour of New Yor City for Prince Harry.

The event caps a whirlwind tour of New York City for Prince Harry.

Earlier on Sunday, he ran with wounded veterans in a charity race through Central Park for the Achilles Hope and Possibility Race.

Another stops on the tour included throwing out the first pitch at Citi Field on Saturday before the Mets took on the Minnesota Twins.

There, the prince donned a Mets cap and got pitching instructions from R.A. Dickey, the Mets' undefeated hurler.

But any luck the team hoped to glean from the regal visit didn't materialize.

Mets ace Johan Santana, recently embroiled in an alleged rape scandal, gave up four runs in the first inning as the Amazins' were shut out by the Minnesota Twins, 6-0.

“It’s not the end of the world,” Santana told reporters after the game. “We keep winning games and at some point, everything will turn around. It’s just that they were better in the first inning. That was the difference in the game.”

During his tour, Prince Harry has also visited UNICEF's offices.
