The romance between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle is apparently more than just “an incredible love story,” according to their friend Nacho Figueras. He says that they are going to “change the world.” The Ralph Lauren model and Argentine polo star was with the royal couple last week for the Sentebale ISPS Handa Polo Cup, and their team scored the winning trophy.
Cameras caught the Prince and his bride sharing a congratulatory kiss at the event, and Figueras was right alongside with a hilarious photobomb. He also shared his own pics on Instagram and couldn’t help but gush about the new Duchess of Sussex.
Figueras says that Markle is “wonderful,” and he is happy for her and Harry. He added that they were lucky to find one another and have a new chapter in their lives. He also wrote on the social media site that Harry and Meghan have a higher purpose.
“This girl really rocks,” Figueras wrote. “The more I know you, the more I am convinced that you both found each other to change the world. Let’s push the envelope!! Let’s make the world a better place.”
Figueras also shared that they raised over $1.3 million for Sentebale, which is Prince Harry’s charity that benefits South African children affected by HIV/AIDS. Figueras is an ambassador for the program that reaches almost 4,000 people each year and helps them live long, healthy, and happy lives.
As for the viral photobomb, Figueras had some fun with it in another Instagram post where he wrote that it’s a moment where you wish the trophy would turn into a violin.
The athlete is married to former model Delfina Blaquier, and the couple has four children.
Figueras also revealed that Markle continues to learn more about polo — which is one of Harry’s favorite sports — and she has enjoyed all of the games that she has attended. She was also able to learn more about polo by sitting with Blaquier.
During the game, Sentebale St. Regis, which was Harry’s team, won 5-4, and he scored twice during the first half. Figueras says he was happy to be on the same team as the Prince this time because they usually play against each other.
It was also a big weekend for one of Markle’s good friends, Priyanka Chopra. The Quantico actress got engaged to Nick Jonas, and fans are wondering if the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will attend the wedding.
It’s entirely possible that the royal couple will be part of Chopra and Jonas’ big day. The foursome recently spent some time together at the newlyweds’ country home in Oxfordshire.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have not publicly commented on Chopra and Jonas’ engagement.
