The Duke and Duchess of Sussex recently announced their decision to take legal action against a number of newspaper outlets, which has resulted in a number of their famous friends speaking out in support of the royal couple. And most recently, Prince Harry's good friend Nacho Figueras, who he has played polo with for many years, appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to talk about them, and opened up about how Meghan "gave up everything" to marry her husband. On the subject of Meghan, he said that she was "an incredible girl" and that she "gave up all the things she had to marry this man she loves." "Nobody knows all of the very hard things that go with that. I love them so much! They're good people," he said.

Fans of the Duke and Duchess will see them out together on 15 October when they step out to the annual WellChild Awards in London. It is one of the most emotional nights of the year, and the next WellChild Awards promises to be another inspiring evening of tears and triumph as it celebrates children who’ve defied incredible health odds to succeed. Harry is patron of WellChild and has been a regular at the event, which this year takes place at London’s Royal Lancaster Hotel. The charity, which cares for seriously ill children, was one of four causes to which Harry and Meghan asked people to donate instead of sending gifts for their newborn son Archie.
