The Coronation Cup took place on Saturday at Guards Polo Club with a large crowd cheering both teams on, despite the rain. For a second year in a row, England took on the Commonwealth; but this time the locals claimed the win. 

After the match, the Ladies took to the field to play the Thai Polo Ladies International Test Match, where Ladies England battled Ladies USA  for the Diamond Jubilee Trophy. It was to be an all English celebration, as since both English teams outscored their rivals.
