New dad Prince Harry showed no signs of suffering sleepless nights today as celebrated his team’s win at a polo club in Rome.
The Duke of Sussex, 36, was in the Italian capital to take part in the Sentebale ISPS Handa Polo Cup charity match.
Harry gave pal Nacho Figueras, an Argentinian polo player, a warm embrace before posing for photographs with him and his glamorous wife Delfina Blaquier.
The prince looked sharp in a crisp white shirt and off-white trousers, which he teamed with a stylish pale blue blazer and grey suede shoes.
Nacho also clearly got the all-white memo, pairing his own ensemble with a navy blazer and a bright yellow belt, while his wife opted for a cream button-down dress and a chic black hat.
Later in the day he was seen posing with the trophy alongside his teammates, before accepting a prize from a Meghan lookalike.
At the last Sentebale polo match in Windsor, Nacho ended up a ‘third wheel’ as he stood beside newlyweds Harry and Meghan while they shared a kiss, awkwardly clutching the trophy just presented to him by the Duchess.
Having become the subject of various memes, Nacho shared a touching Instagram tribute to the Sussexes, writing: ‘This girl [Meghan] really rocks. 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.’
Nacho attended the Royal Wedding in May last year and described it as an ‘incredible moment, an incredible place, a historic moment’.
He said: ‘It was great. But I was really there for my friend’s wedding, so I enjoyed being there with him.’
The match in Rome is to raise funds and awareness for Prince Harry’s charity that helps vulnerable children affected by AIDs in southern Africa, of which he is a patron.
Sentebale was founded by the duke and Lesotho’s Prince Seeiso in 2006 to help the most vulnerable children and young people in southern Africa get support to lead healthy and productive lives.
Richard Miller, chief executive of Sentebale, thanked their sponsors and said: ‘Partnerships like these are invaluable to us being able to deliver quality programmes of education, care and psychosocial support to many young people whose lives have been affected by the HIV epidemic in southern Africa.’
Despite progress being made worldwide to combat the Aids epidemic, HIV remains one of the leading causes of death for adolescents in sub-Saharan Africa.
Three out of four new HIV infections among 15 to 19-year-olds are among young women, and stigma is a major factor preventing young people knowing their HIV status and accessing lifesaving treatment and care.
