Meghan Markle had a My Fair Lady moment as she joined Prince Harry at a polo tournament yesterday.
The Duchess of Sussex, 40, stepped out in a black wide brim hat, black and white polka dot blouse and £670 high-rise pleated shorts as she cheered on her husband at the Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club.
Harry, 37, recently joined polo team Los Padres, having played the sport for most of his life alongside his brother William, 39. The club is run by his old friend Nacho Figueres, 45, an Argentine sports star dubbed the ‘David Beckham of polo’.
The team took home the Lisle Nixon Memorial trophy at yesterday’s event, which was open to the public and attracted stars including Rebel Wilson and Meghan’s actress BFF Abigail Spencer.
Meghan was on hand to present the prize and pecked each team member on the cheek – before planting a kiss on her husband’s mouth.
Realising some of her lipstick had rubbed off, she took her finger and gave Harry’s lips a wipe in an intimate moment watched by the crowd of spectators.
The affectionate display was a world away from the tense and distant peck Charles and Diana shared following his polo victory in 1985, just four years after their wedding.
