Despite his status as sixth in the line of succession to the British throne, Prince Harry "is just one of the guys" when it comes to his weekend polo tournaments at the Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club, near the Montecito home he shares with wife Meghan Markle and their two children, Archie and Lilibet. "Prince Harry looks so comfortable and happy on the polo field, and everyone treats him like he is just one of the guys!" an observer tells PEOPLE. Competing on a team called Los Padres alongside longtime pal Nacho Figueras, Prince Harry has brought his longtime passion for the sport to his new home in recent weeks. However, his competitors have made him work for his successes (the team has won two tournaments already!). "His presence this season has brought a really cool vibe to the club, but it hasn't changed the way the games have been played — it's business as usual and all the teams are fighting for the win," the observer says.
