Duchess Meghan made a surprise appearance at the polo pitch where husband Duke Harry was participating in a charity match with his team. All eyes were on the team as they forged their way to victory, but there was one person who only had eyes for the beautiful Meghan - new husband Prince Harry!
After Harry’s Sentebale St. Regis team squeaked out a 5-4 win, it was time to present the trophy for the conquering heroes. All funds raised at the event will be given to the Prince’s charity for vulnerable children in the African country of Lesotho.
The Duchess of Sussex was charged with the duty of awarding the trophy and in so doing, “The newlywed royal gave husband Prince Harry a congratulatory smooch after handing over the winning trophy at a charity polo match on Thursday.”
Although Harry scored twice in the match, helping the team take the victory, the trophy is traditionally handed to the captain. People reports that ”After giving team captain Nacho Figueras a couple of air kisses as she delivered the trophy, she turned to Harry, 33, and kissed him on the lips."
You can witness, for yourself, the romantic moment between husband and wife in the tweet, below
“Though Figueras appeared to offer the award to Harry, he was preoccupied with his wife for the moment!”
The kiss was reminiscent of the many times when Harry’s mother, Diana Princess of Wales had the honor of handing the winning trophy to Prince Charles after his polo team won.
There were undoubtedly more than a few wistful smiles in the crowd as they took in the touching sight, especially for those old enough to remember back 30 years when the beloved late Princess Diana did the same for Harry’s father, Prince Charles.
Although the level of passion the two couples displayed is quite different, it still takes us back - wouldn't you agree??
“As the teams departed, Meghan, 36, affectionately rubbed her husband’s back and the couple — who wed in May — joined hands and walked away.” Such a lovely sight…
