Former rugby player Mike has always had a close relationship with his wife Zara's cousin, with the couple stepping out to support a number of Harry's causes over the years.

As well as attending Harry and Meghan's royal wedding in May 2018, Mike and Zara were spotted in the crowd at the Sentebale Concert in 2016 – a charity which helps vulnerable and HIV positive children of Lesotho and Botswana.

Harry and Mike have been spotted enjoying a laugh during family get-togethers, including the Patron's lunch to celebrate the Queen's 90th birthday in 2016 and polo matches. The pair even competed against one another in a star-studded wheelchair rugby match at the Invictus Games 2014 in London.
