Nothing alleviates the tension of feeling like an unwelcome third wheel like cracking a hilarious joke.
That was polo star Nacho Figueras’ solution when he found himself alongside Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle, during the trophy ceremony following the Sentebale ISPS Handa Polo Cup at the Royal County Berkshire Polo Club on Thursday. Markle presented the trophy to the winning team, which happened to be Harry’s. However, after handing off the prize, Markle and her new hubby shared a passionate kiss, leaving Figueras awkwardly standing nearby in subsequent photos.
But, afterwards, the polo pro found the perfect way to show fans he’s able to laugh at the uncomfortable moment and show his support for his royal friends.
“When you wished the trophy would turn into a violin. What an incredible love story,” he captioned a photo of himself holding the trophy as the newlyweds shared their kiss.
The event was created to support Sentebale, a charity the prince founded with Prince Seeiso of Lesotho, which works to improve the mental health and well-being of children whose lives have been affected by HIV in Lesotho and Botswana.
