Prince Harry gets a serious glutes stretch while playing polo with longtime pal Nacho Figueras
NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!
Prince Harry may be across the pond, but his heart is still in the U.K.
Over the weekend, the Duke of Sussex was in good spirits playing polo with his longtime pal, Argentine champ and model Ignacio “Nacho” Figueras, near his Montecito, California, home. The Santa Barbara Polo and Racquet Club hosted the match.
The 37-year-old’s wife, Meghan Markle, cheered for the British prince as she watched the game alongside Figueras’ wife Delfina and her close friend Markus Anderson.
Harry was at his best as he raced across the field. Before he could move across the field, the father-of-two did a serious stretch with more emphasis on his glutes.

Figueras, 45, took to Instagram and shared a snapshot of his team that was taken by his daughter Aurora.
“Thrilled to be riding alongside my friend, Prince Harry, and the rest of the Los Padres team at the @santabarbarapoloclub ‘s Harry East Memorial Tournament,” he captioned the snap. “We have ridden together many times over time and now that we are both parents, it’s extra special being able to share this time together.” “
” The name Los Padres was derived from the closeness of the field to Los Padres National Forest, as well as our connection with fathers,” the star said.
Harry grew up playing polo in his homeland alongside his older brother Prince William. He plays polo regularly with Figueras, who was the first to meet Harry’s firstborn Archie.
Prince Harry was a Los Padres member in Santa Barbara, California.
In 2020, Figueras spoke to Fox News Digital about how, like his close pal, he grew up with the sport.
“I learned polo at a farm in Argentina as a child,” he said. “So, I think the best thing about playing polo as a child is that you don’t really think about it. You just love to ride horses. It’s having fun at the farm, with other children, and running around, not knowing what you’re doing. I have fond memories of riding horses and playing polo alongside other children. “
In April, Harry told Hoda Kotb ahead of the Invictus Games that he missed his family at home in the U.K. but seemingly dodged a question when asked if he missed his brother William and their father Prince Charles specifically.
Harry resides in California since two years.

“I don’t know how many people feel truly peaceful, you know?” He said. “I feel, at times I feel massively at ease. “
Markle, a former American actress, became the Duchess of Sussex when she married the prince in May 2018 at Windsor Castle. The couple welcomed a son named Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor in 2019.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s departures from royal duties began in 2020 over what they described as the British media’s intrusions and racist attitudes toward the former “Suits” star, 40. The family now lives in Montecito, a coastal city.
In the wake of quitting royal duties, they gave an explosive TV interview to Oprah Winfrey in March 2021, in which the couple described painful comments about how dark Archie’s skin might be before his birth.

Buckingham Palace said the allegations of racism made by the couple were “concerning” and would be addressed privately. In June of that same year, the couple welcomed their second child Lilibet “Lili” Diana MountbattenWindsor. The name pays tribute to both Harry’s grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, whose family nickname is Lilibet, and his late mother, Princess Diana.
