Prince Harry and his longtime pal Nacho Figueras teamed up for a polo tournament at the Santa Barbara Polo Club in California over the weekend.

The Harry East Memorial Tournament was held not far from the Montecito, California, home the Duke of Sussex shares with his wife Meghan Markle and their two children: Archie, who turns 3 Friday, and Lili, who will turn 1 on June 4.

Markle was spotted watching and cheering from the sidelines as Prince Harry competed on the field, People reported.

For the game, the Duchess of Sussex wore a striped blouse and black shorts, which she accessorized with sunglasses, a white blazer and a sun hat. Her good friend Markus Anderson joined her on the sidelines.

Prince Harry and Figueras — whom he frequently plays polo alongside — played together on a team called Los Padres, which means the fathers/parents in Spanish. They went on to win the tournament.

Figueras shared a snap from their game 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 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."

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 traveled to Aspen, Colorado, for a charity polo match benefiting Sentebale. The royal co-founded the organization in 2006 with Prince Seeiso of Lesotho to help children affected by HIV in Africa.

During his surprise appearance at the event, the prince also promised $1.5 million of the proceeds from his forthcoming memoir to the charity.

"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 for the children and communities who gravely need it," he said in a statement.

Back in 2018, Markle supported Prince Harry from the sidelines at another Sentebale charity polo match. The couple celebrated with a congratulatory kiss after handing over the trophy.

Just weeks after Archie was born in 2019, Prince Harry also traveled to Rome for his first night away from his son to play polo for his charity.

The duke's latest polo match comes a few weeks after he and Markle traveled to The Hague, Netherlands, for this year's Invictus Games.

The international sporting event, which was founded by Prince Harry in 2014 for wounded, injured and sick servicemen and women, both serving and veterans, was held from April 16 to 22 after twice being delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The 2023 Invictus Games will take place in Düsseldorf, Germany.
