The Ralph Lauren model also revealed how happy he was to be reunited with his close friend Prince Harry and took to Instagram to share his delight.

Captioning a team photo after last week's match, Nacho wrote: "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.

"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.

"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."

The fatherly spirit must have been high for Harry whose son Archie was receiving birthday wishes from his royal relatives.

The Queen took to social media with a heartfelt message for the three-year-old.
