A CHARITY patron from Bucks had a brush with royalty on Sunday as he presented a polo prize to Prince William.

Chenies resident Vartan Melkonian presented the Jerudong Trophy to the Duke of Cambridge after his side were victorious in the annual Maserati Charity challenge.

But that was only after brother Prince Harry - who was on the opposing, defeated, team - stepped in and insisted to Mr Melkonian he should get his hands on the title first.

Mr Melkonian presented the Duke with the winners' trophy in his role as a patron for the Consortium for Street Children.
