Meghan Markle gives her husband Prince Harry a congratulatory kiss at a polo tournament. The Duchess of Sussex gives off major Princess Diana vibes.

A Very Royal PDA

Markle also offered a couple of air kisses to team captain Nacho Figueras, following their team's victory at the charity match on Thursday. Figueras tried to offer the trophy to Harry, but he was too distracted by his wife to notice.

The captain is a fan of Markle, who's already attended several polo games this year, gushing to PEOPLE about how happy he is for the royal couple.

"She's lovely, she's wonderful. I'm very happy for her, for Harry. They're both lucky to have found each other and have this new chapter of their life," he said.

When asked about whether they seem to be enjoying newlywed life, Figueras told the publication the couple are very happy.

Their sweet, romantic gesture came following a lively game in the sun, which saw Harry's Sentebale St. Regis team winning 5-4. The afternoon tournament was in aid of the Prince's own charity for vulnerable children in Lesotho, Africa.

He managed to score twice himself for his team, contributing to their victory. Figueras noted that the Prince played very well on the day.

"Harry played very well ... It was great that I played with Harry. We normally play against each other at this kind of event so I am very happy that we are now being able to play together. ... And we won which never hurts," he said

As the teams left, 36-year-old Markle was also spotted affectionately rubbing her husband's back. The couple, who wed in May in a spectacular ceremony watched by millions all over the world, then joined hands and strolled off together.

Channeling Princess Diana

The Suits alum was giving off serious Princess Diana vibes at the event, as the People's Princess was often present to congratulate her husband, Prince Charles, at the conclusion of polo matches. The couple even occasionally shared a public kiss also.

Prince Harry is channeling his mother's charitable side too. Sentebale was set up by him and Prince Seeiso of Lesotho back in 2006 to help kids affected by HIV in the area as well as in neighboring Botswana. This in turn carried on Diana's work to dismantle the stigma surrounding HIV/AIDS.

Earlier this week, Kensington Palace released previously unseen photos from the Prince's solo trip to Africa last month, during which he opened a school and a house on behalf of the charity.

On Monday, he was in Amsterdam for the International AIDS Conference, sitting down with young people to discuss issues faced by teenagers battling the disease.

Alongside family friend Sir Elton John, Harry also announced the launch of the billion-dollar MenStar Coalition project, a new network of international funding avenues for AIDS research.
