Nacho Figueras is not only one of the top polo players in the world – The 39-year-old father of four is also the face of Ralph Lauren, an author, philanthropist and close friend to Prince Harry.

Figueras and Prince Harry both share a love of polo and are heavily involved in charitable causes.

The duo saddled up during the rain soaked Sentebale Royal Salute Polo Cup and are both Sentebale ambassadors working to help children orphaned by HIV and AIDS.

“When we’re in Africa, he’s the first one to wake up! Figueras tells PEOPLE of Prince Harry at the 9th annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic at Liberty State Park. “He’s the first one to say: Why is that not fixed? Let’s fix that!’ ‘Let’s build another school!’ – He’s always raising the bar.

The most impressive thing about him is how committed he is to helping others.

“He could be totally different, Figueras says, He could just stay home and do what he has to do, but he goes over the top to make things happen.”

Figueras took home the MVP award after he led team Black Watch to an 8-2 victory at the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic – He played alongside his 16-year-old son Hilario as his wife of 18-years Delfina Blaquier cheered them on.
