He tells PEOPLE that the new royal is learning more about one of Harry’s favorite sports, of which she’s already attended several games this year. “It was great. She said that she enjoyed the game,” the polo player said. “We watched the game with my wife which is wonderful because she could learn more about the game.” And even though he’s a star athlete, Figueras is glad to be on the same team as Harry. “Harry played very well,” he explains. “Offensively he played well. Defensively he gave a great back shot for me to score the last goal which we really needed. It’s always the same when he starts at the beginning of the summer and his level of game keeps going up and up.” Figueras adds, “It was great that I played with Harry. We normally play against each other at this kind of event so I am very happy that we are now being able to play together. We had a good time. It was a good day for Sentebale, and we won which never hurts.” Splash News Harry and his friend’s team was winning 3-1 when the 33-year-old royal sent a polo ball whizzing toward a gaggle of media capturing his charity game. He recognized photographer Tim Rooke and called out, “Sorry Rookie. I was trying to give you a good shot!” His team soon made it 4-1 in the last chukka, or period. However, their rivals racked up three goals in a minute, tying up the score with just two minutes left. The game ended 5-4, with Figueras scoring the final goal to win the Sentebale ISPS Handa Polo Cup.
