Parties by night, polo matches by day? The royal life doesn't sound too bad to us!

Prince William and Kate Middleton just touched down in Los Angeles yesterday, but took to the sky again today, hailing a chopper from L.A. to sunny Santa Barbara for an afternoon polo match--the Foundation Polo Challenge, to be precise.

And if last night's star studded soiree didn't quench the royal couple's celebrity spotting thirsts, today's outing packed a few famous faces as well:

Rob Lowe, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Joe Jonas, Zoe Saldana, and Rosario Dawson were among the many celebs who stepped out to celebrate the British newlyweds' visit to California.

The Hollywood crowd and pond-hopping highnesses congregated at the Santa Barbara Polo and Racquet Club for a private luncheon and charity polo match supporting The American Friends of the Foundation of Prince William and Prince Harry.

Prince William was front and center before the duo dined, chatting about how delighted he was to be in S.B. and how excited he was to "let loose," then poked fun at his polo-playing fam, saying:

"My father, The Prince of Wales, and my brother, Harry, were as green as that grass out there when I told them I'd be here."

William need not worry (too much) though, as brother Harry was hitting the polo field back in jolly old England--and looking awfully cute in the process.

And after lunch it was time for the games to begin.

The Duke of Cambridge saddled up and donned blue jersey number 4 to play for Team Royal Salute, while his bride lovingly watched on. And luckily for Prince William (and Santa Barbara, if they want his highness to return ), Will's team won!

The Prince showed off some serious polo skills throughout the day (scoring quite a few times) and Kate was the lucky lady who got to present her hubby with his trolphy. And a kiss, of course!

Too cute! But the couple had no time to celebrate because they choppered off to the BAFTA red carpet event!
