Besides sending fans on a meltdown with their public kiss at this year’s polo charity match, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry grabbed attention due to another attendee, Delfina Figueras. With pictures swarming all over the Internet from their appearances together, fans have now dubbed Figueras as the Duchess’ sister-in-law. However, the question that lingers is whether the two are related by blood or by Markle’s marital ties and the answer is none. Figueras, in reality, is Prince Harry’s polo pal, Nacho Figueras’ wife.

Professionally, she is an Argentine socialite, photographer, fashion business woman and a former athlete. For further context, Nacho Figueras’ friendship with the Prince dates back to 2007 when they first met at a polo match in England. Hence, when the Duke and Duchess got married, their brotherhood made way for both their wives to craft a bond of sisterhood. Not only on the lips, but previously in 2022, Figueras literally penned a message to Markle, remarking her as her “sister” and “fellow pwife”, meaning her polo wife.
