The Duke of Sussex gets the ultimate prize after winning the Sentebale Polo Cup

The day was about raising money for Sentebale but all eyes were on the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

Meghan was on hand to cheer on her prince as the annual Sentebale ISPS Handa Polo Cup was played in Windsor. They were able to raise over £1 million to support children and youth with HIV.

Prince Harry’s team consisted of Nacho Figueras, who is also an ambassador for Sentebale. The team won 5-4 with Figueras scoring the winning point.

Figueras spoke to People about his friend’s wife “She’s lovely, she’s wonderful. I’m very happy for her, for Harry.”

He added: “They’re both lucky to have found each other and have this new chapter of their life.”

Figueras also revealed that Meghan is learning more about the game which is much more popular in the UK compared to the United States.

“It was great. She said that she enjoyed he game.

“She watched the game with my wife which is wonderful because she could learn more about the game.”

He even commented on the Duke of Sussex’s polo skills.

“Harry played very well, offensively he played well. Defensively he gave a great back shot for me to score the last goal which we really needed. It’s always the same when he starts at the beginning of the summer and his level of game keeps going up and up.

“It was great that I played with Harry. We normally play against each other at this kind of event so I am very happy that we are now being able to play together. We had a good time. It was a good day for Sentebale, and we won which never hurts.”

Sentebale was founded by Prince Harry and Prince Seeiso. It provides support for youth with HIV in Botswana and Lesotho.
