The celebrity couples go way back

Nacho told Insider: "Of course, I think the fact that we both feel the same way about giving back obviously helps you to have a good relationship,"

The sportsman is an ambassador of Senetable an organisation founded by Prince Harry and Prince Seeiso, which is dedicated to helping children and young people in Lesotho who or whose family's suffer with HIV and AIDs.

Talking to HELLO! About his commitment to the charity, Nacho said: "It’s something I’m very proud of.

"I’ve been to Lesotho twice and I love it. It’s a wonderful thing to be able to use the sport that you love as a platform to help kids that really need it.”

As for Harry's riding abilities, Nacho was also very impressed and praised both Prince Harry and Prince William for their polo-playing skills. "They love the sport of polo so it's always fun to be around them," Nacho said.

"It's always fun to help them and an honour to help them raise money, which is what they use polo for, for charities, so it's a wonderful thing."

He added: "Their grandmother [the Queen] is a big fan of horses and very passionate. Their grandfather played, their father played, they both play. They're great riders."
