CARPINTERIA, Calif. (AP) -- Prince William has taken to the field for a polo match on the second day of a royal visit to Southern California.

William and his wife, the former Kate Middleton, drew a crowd to the Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club on Saturday to raise millions of dollars for good causes and to celebrate the club's centenary.

The match is something of a recreational diversion for the couple, who otherwise are spending the bulk of their three-day visit promoting British business ties to the U.S. and highlighting charitable work.

The couple will return to Los Angeles at night for a black-tie event organized by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts.
