Prince Harry enjoys special double celebration on Archie’s birthday

On Friday, Prince Harry’s firstborn Archie turned three years old, but there were double celebrations in store for the father-of-two as he also won an epic Polo match in California.

The pair’s team ‘Los Padres,’ which included polo star and longtime friend Nacho Figueras, won their match against rival team Mokarow farms at the Santa Barbara polo club.

After kicking off the polo season with another win last weekend, Harry, Nacho, and the Los Padres team appear to be on a winning streak.


Nacho shared the news with his 180,000 Instagram followers


Nacho expressed his joy over the news on Instagram, writing: “What a great way to begin. #lospadrespoloteam I’m extremely proud of my team!”

The Ralph Lauren model also expressed his delight at being reunited with his close friend Prince Harry, posting on Instagram.

Nacho captioned a team photo after last week’s match: “At the @santabarbarapoloclub’s Harry East Memorial Tournament, I’m thrilled to be riding alongside my friend, Prince Harry, and the rest of the Los Padres team.

“We’ve ridden together a lot over the years, and now that we’re both parents, it’s even more special to be able to do so.

“The Los Padres name was inspired by the field’s proximity to the Los Padres National Forest, as well as our shared fatherhood.”

Harry’s fatherly spirit must have been soaring as his son Archie received birthday greetings from his royal relatives.

The Queen sent a heartfelt message to the three-year-old on social media.

    I’d first like to wish a belated Happy, Happy 3rd Birthday to Archie! Congrats to you, Harry, on your win. I’ve never been to a polo match but I look forward to going to one and seeing you in your element 🙂

    BTW….you are not a father of two. You are a father of three, with your first born being a female who was born in 2014 and Chelsea Davies is her mother.

    NOW are you all secure in the fact that I am NOT the liar in this mess and that I do indeed have a the gift of clairvoyance??!! NOW do you believe me??!!

    To add on to my last comment…I know that my gift scares the Hell out of everyone. Most people tend to fear and not trust what they don’t understand and/or can’t explain…and my gift falls into both categories. I don’t even quite understand it myself or how I have an awareness of the things I do. What I need for you to know that neither I nor my gift are evil. It has just enabled me to survive great evil and evil intent. While it was inherited from my maternal grandmother, mine is much more sensitive and much stronger than hers was and I truly believe that it’s because God knew that I’d need it. He knew the trauma that I’d suffer the summer before I turned 6 and the aftermath that would ensue. HE also knew that how much he had gifted me, combined with the skin and gender (sex) he had packaged all these gifts in, HE KNEW that I’d need it…for survival. HE knew human nature LONG before knew and I understood it.

    I look forward to meeting everyone, especially my baby girl, Sophia.
