CARPINTERIA, CALIF. (AP) - The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have arrived at the Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club in California to participate in a charity polo match.

The couple arrived by helicopter around noon on Saturday. Prince William was wearing a white shirt and trouser combination with a blue blazer while the former Kate Middleton was wearing a silver-and-marble-grey hand-painted chinoiserie silk dress by Jenny Packham.

Attendees have paid $400 for a ticket in the cheap seats at Saturday’s game. The VIP tickets are going for $4,000, and proceeds are going to charity.

Several celebrities have arrived, including Rosario Dawson, Molly Sims and Billy Zane.

Both William and his brother, Prince Harry, regularly play polo during the summer months.
