Prince Harry wins at polo; Spielberg heads Cannes jury

Harry wins at polo

Britain’s Prince Harry capped his weeklong trip to the US by winning a charity polo match at a star-studded event in Connecticut. The prince’s team won 4-3 after he scored a game-tying goal Wednesday at Greenwich Polo Club. The match benefited Sentebale, the charity he cofounded to help poor children and AIDS orphans in Lesotho. The invitation-only match drew hundreds of guests including supermodel Karolina Kurkova and designers Jason Wu and Valentino. (AP)

Cannes underway

The Cannes Film Festival got off to a blockbuster, if stormy start, as Baz Luhrmann’s ‘‘The Great Gatsby’’ opened on a soggy French Riviera. ‘‘Gatsby’’ stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan, and Tobey Maguire helped give the festival’s opening day a strong dose of star power. Steven Spielberg , this year’s jury president, was received like a king of cinema. The jury also includes Nicole Kidman, Ang Lee, and Christoph Waltz. (AP)
