Nacho praised the Duke and Duchess of Sussex during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. The polo player told Ellen: “I’ve been friends with him for twelve, thirteen years now and I’ve seen it all happen right from the very beginning when he was who he was and he was younger and that was all great.
“And he’s a wonderful man, someone that really cares. He’s really committed. He really cares. He cares about children. He cares about making the world a better place.
“Then he found Meghan who is an incredible girl, she’s amazing. She gave up all of the things that she had to marry this man that she loves which is great.
“And people think of it like, oh, how easy it is for you, girl, to go marry this guy but nobody knows all the very hard things that go with that.”
