Prince Harry’s BFF polo wife Delfina Blaquier Nacho Figueras steps out in cream dress
Yesterday, Prince Harry rubbed shoulders with one of his wife’s glamorous best friends at the polo shirt.
Delfina Blaquier was pictured in a chic cream ensemble as she stepped out to attend a charity polo tournament in Colorado.
The 41-year-old Argentinian is married to Prince Harry’s polo pal Nacho Figueras, 45, who has been described as the ‘David Beckham of polo’.
She often attends games to support her husband and close friend the Duke of Sussex, 37.
Yesterday she donned a chic £294 cream Simon Miller dress as she cheered on the pair to victory in the Sentebale ISPS Handa Polo Cup in Aspen.
Delfina paired the fitted full-length Draco dress with a £655 pair of yellow Gianvito Rossi Bijoux sandals and a £1,240 Gucci Dionysus GG jumbo chain wallet.

The mother-of-four shielded herself from the sun and added a laid-back touch to the ensemble by donning a straw hat over her short blonde bob.
Meanwhile, she looked fresh and appeared to be sporting a makeup-free look.
Throughout the day, the 41-year-old was pictured smiling and chatting with Prince Harry – who scored five times during the game – as well as her husband Nacho.
Delfina, who is the daughter of an Argentinian polo player, grew up in Buenos Aires.
Until the age of 18, she was an athlete, representing her country at various high jump competitions.
She went to college and earned a degree in landscaping before becoming a professional model and photographer.
Delfina first met her husband at a polo match in Buenos Aires in 1997. The couple began dating in early 1998 and welcomed their first son in 2000 and married in December 2005.

The mother of four describes her family’s lifestyle as “nomadic”. Although they have a base outside of Buenos Aires, they do a lot of globe-trotting because Nacho has to travel for his sports career, and they usually go with him.
They now have four children together: Hilario, 21; Aurora, 16; Artemo, 11 years old; and Alba, eight.
Writing on her blog, Delfina revealed that her children are homeschooled due to their nomadic lifestyle, as the family travels the world for Nacho’s career.
While the clan spends a lot of time on the road, they are based outside of Buenos Aires, where they own a 30-acre ranch housing some 40 world-class polo horses in 38,750-square-foot stables designed by Argentinian architect Juan Ignacio Ramos.
Their family home is just a five-minute walk from the stables.
Delfina, pictured here with Prince Harry in Aspen yesterday, has her own creative career in fashion and blogging, as well as being a mother of four
The 41-year-old is also close friends with Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle, and has been seen with the royal couple at Sentebale Cup events.
In addition to supporting her husband’s career and caring for her children, Delfina has a busy creative career.
In 2018, she co-founded the fashion brand Àcheval Pampa, which made its debut at Paris Fashion Week AW18.
The creations are inspired by his Argentinian heritage and achieve an elevated gaucho style, an equestrian fashion of South American cowboys.
She also devotes a lot of time to We Are Figueras, her fashion and lifestyle blog that she created to share her family’s travels.
On the blog, she writes: “As the kids grew up I felt the need to work on something for myself, I consider myself a creative person and I had all these ideas to do something fun thing.

‘Creating a blog was a lot of fun and a lot of work. I thought it was a great idea to give my point of view and share with you things that I like to do, see, watch, receive or even visit.
“There’s so much out there, and I thought it was a good idea to do it wherever I was.”
The polo shirt couple have been friends with Prince Harry for years and were among the few to attend one of the most exclusive events of the decade: the Royal Family’s 2018 wedding to Meghan Markle.
They may have been overshadowed at the event by stars such as singer Ellie Goulding, David and Victoria Beckham, Elton John and Oprah Winfrey, but their presence confirmed how much their friendship is valued by the royal couple.
