Nacho Figueras - who has Hilario, 23, Aurora, 19, Artemio, 13, and Alba, 10, with wife Delfina Blaquier - is a regular teammate of the Duke of Sussex and he hopes Prince Archie, five, and two-year-old Princess Lilibet have inherited their royal father's love of horses and playing the sport.

Asked if he'd like Harry and his wife Meghan, Duchess of Sussex's children to play against his one day, Nacho told Britain's HELLO! magazine: "I really hope so, I hope that Archie and Lili get to love horses as much as he does."

"There's something about the outside of a horse that's great for the inside of a human. Hopefully that love and passion will be transmitted. I know my kids love it and they love to play. It would be a dream that one day we all get to play polo together."

The Argentinian former model only practices with Harry "every once in a while" but they "speak very often".

He said: "It's always great to be with him and doing something we love, which is playing polo.

"We speak very often, which is amazing to be able to have a friendship that feels like – sometimes we're not together-together – so it's always a good thing to be able to share that with someone."

The pair recently took part in the Royal Salute Polo Challenge to raise money for Harry's charity Sentebale and though raising money for a good cause is always at the forefront, Harry and Nacho can't resist getting competitive.

Asked which of them is most competitive, Nacho said: "I think it goes both ways. It's been a few days that we've been punching each other, who's going to win today.

"We like to make fun about that, today it's Sentebale that wins and that's what we're all here for."
