Proud wife Meghan gives Prince Harry special prize after charity win

Proud wife Meghan gives Prince Harry special prize after charity win

The royal couple are known for breaking royal protocol to show public displays of affection and now, the Duchess of Sussex has given a special reward to Prince Harry at a charity polo match.

Meghan was eager to congratulate her husband with a kiss after he won a polo match with his St Regis team 5-4 over Royal Salute, with the Prince scoring two goals at the Sentebale Polo Cup.

The game was held to raise money for Harry’s charity Sentebale which supports young people with HIV and Aids in Lesotho.

The 36-year-old Duchess stunned at the charity game in a AU$4,188 navy dress by Carolina Herrera.

As the royal newlyweds walked away from the prize presentation, Meghan could be seen affectionately rubbing Harry’s back as they held hands.

After the game, Harry’s close friend and fellow player, Nacho Figueras, praised Meghan, saying: “The Duchess is lovely and wonderful.”

“I’m very happy for Harry. They are both lucky to have found each each other and I am very excited about this new chapter in his life.”

Figueras said that Meghan was also excited to have the honour of presenting the prize at the polo match — a duty that has previously been carried out by other royal ladies, including Princess Diana.

“She watched the game with my wife which was wonderful because she could learn more about the game,” he explained.

“It was great that I got to play with Harry because we normally play against each other. Harry played great. They are very, very happy together.”

Harry created the charity after travelling to Lesotho for his gap year with Prince Seeiso, the younger brother of King Letsie III.

The event is held annually at the Royal County of Berkshire Polo Club.
