Nacho Figueras says he ‘loves’ Meghan Markle’s jam days after his wife Delfina Blaquier teased the product as he joins the PR bandwagon for American Riviera Orchard


Meghan Markle‘s American Riviera Orchard strawberry jam is being put to good use in the Figueras household – as Harry’s polo pal has revealed he ‘loves’ the product.

Ignacio ‘Nacho’ Figueras, dubbed by Tatler as ‘the David Beckham of polo’ posted snaps of himself spreading the jam on a piece of buttered toast and biting into it on Instagram – just days after his wife Delfina Blaquier first promoted the product.

As the Argentine polo player, who is based in Florida, posted the photos, Nacho wrote: ‘Did I tell you I love your jam?’

The photos follow a slick PR campaign by Meghan’s glamorous pals, including her close friend of many years, Kelly McKee Zajfen, and A-listers Mindy Kaling and Tracee Ells Ross.

Earlier this week Nacho’s wife Delfina, an Argentinian socialite, posted a snap of the jam on her Instagram story and said: ‘Strawberry jam makes me so happy’ as she held up the jar which was marked number 10 out of 50.

Delfina first met her husband at a polo match in Buenos Aires in 1997. They started dating in early 1998 and welcomed their first son in 2000, and wed in December 2005. The couple now have four children together: Hilario; Aurora; Artemo; and Alba. 

Nacho and Prince Harry have been playing in charity polo matches, both together and against each other, for the last decade, with Nacho becoming involved in Harry’s charity Sentebale.

As the polo players have become friends, so have their wives, who have been spotted cheering on their husbands in matches across the US, while each nailing their polo spectator outfits.

It seems Meghan and Delfina’s friendship has developed significantly over the last few years, with the Argentine socialite referring to the Duchess as her ‘sister’ in a gushing Instagram post.

Posting a photo of herself and the Duchess watching their husbands compete at the Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club, she wrote: ‘M – looking forward to many more of these times with you and H.

‘Getting to spend time together over these two months was so special. I wish everyone knew you the way you are.’

She continued: ‘My sister, my now fellow “pwife” (polo wife) -genius of you to come up with this. Can’t wait to see you again soon, to share thrill, hikes, and just more chill time.’

Delfina added: ‘You also have my respect. Keep walking, steady and strong. Listen to your heart, that will guide you well, because you have a big one and it’s a beautiful one. I love you my darling.’

She also praised the royal mother-of-two as being ‘stronger than she knows’ in an interview with Hello! magazine in the same year.

‘[Meghan] is so wonderful and strong. Stronger than she knows. I love being around my friends, and I will always support her,’ she told the magazine.

In an earlier interview with the publication, Delfina, who splits her time between Argentina and Florida, also revealed that the pair referred to themselves as the ‘P Wives’ which stands for ‘Polo Wives’.
