Prince Harry played polo at Santa Barbara Polo Club in California. The Duke of Sussex and his longtime pal Nacho Figueras claimed victory in this Harry East Memorial Tournament. Meghan Markle and their two children were also present there to support him.
Harry’s friend Nacho Figueras wrote on Instagram, “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 also wrote, “We’ve ridden together many times over the years and now that we’re both parents, it’s extra special to be able to spend this time together.” Then he added, “The name Los Padres was inspired by the proximity of the field to the Los Padres National Forest and also by our connection as fathers.”
Last year Prince Harry joined a charity polo match in Aspen. The purpose of that match was to support his charity “Sentebale”. This charity was founded by Harry and Prince Seeiso of Lesotho in 2006. To help children affected by HIV in Africa was the main goal of this charity.
At that time, he promised to donate $1.5 million to the charity from his forthcoming memoir. Harry said, “This is one of several donations I plan to make to charitable organizations and I’m grateful to be able to give back in this way to the children and communities who gravely need it.”
