Prince William replaces his polo ponies with a huge painting
TALK OF THE TOWN: Prince William replaces his polo ponies with a huge painting made by a friend that now hangs in his home… and gives a copy of the artwork to his brother Harry
After deciding to give up his polo ponies, I can report that Prince William has replaced them with a huge painting made by a friend that now hangs in his home.

‘He gave a copy to his groom and his brother. I know him as we met on Mustique and our parents are friends. It took a month to complete the project as there were 12 ponies. I’d rather not say how much it cost, but I cut him a deal,’ added Madeleine who, as my photo shows, must be the only artist who paints standing on a horse!
