Prince Harry’s close friend Nacho Figueras says he has suffered a lot and he’s just trying to protect his wife Meghan and their son Archie by stepping back from the British royal family. 

The Argentinian polo-player told Good Morning America on Wednesday that he spoke to Prince Harry just a few days ago and that his friend is just trying to live a normal life. 

‘He has suffered a lot for all the things that have happened to him,’ Figueras, who regularly plays polo with Harry and was among the first to meet baby Archie, said. 

Prince Harry’s close friend Nacho Figueras told Good Morning America on Wednesday that he spoke to the Duke of Sussex a few days ago and that his friend is just trying to live a normal life

‘He wants to live a normal life, as normal as his life is going to be. When you have 1,000 paparazzi outside your house in Canada waiting to get one picture of your son, that’s not normal. 

‘He’s protecting his family, he’s protecting his wife and his child.

‘He was the son of someone who suffered attacks from the press and it’s undeniable. He doesn’t want for that to happen for his family.’

Figueras spoke out ahead of the ABC’s prime time special – Royal Divide: Harry, Meghan, and The Crown – going to air on Wednesday night. 

American-born Viscountess Julie Montagu also appeared on GMA on Wednesday as she admitted it was hard marrying into the British aristocracy. 

Montagu left her native Illinois and became known as Viscountess Hinchingbrooke when she married her husband Luke, who is in line to be the Earl of Sandwich, 20 years ago.

‘People commented she knew what she was getting into. I’ve got to be honest… you don’t know until you’re in it,’ the former yoga instructor said. 

‘I can attest to that – as an American we have been brought up from day one (being) told you can do whatever you want to do, you can be whatever you want to be. 

‘All of a sudden she’s moved over here and she can’t be anything she wants to be anymore, she can’t do anything she wants to do anymore. 

‘I think it can be suffocating for somebody who is American and their whole life was spent working towards becoming this TV actress, having passions in her life and all of a sudden going into a much more claustrophobic world where… you can’t be political, you can’t be emotional and you can’t have opinions.’ 

Harry and Meghan have been faced with intense scrutiny since they made their bombshell announcement they were resigning as senior royals after just 20 months of marriage.

The couple have been in Canada ever since with their son Archie where they have been staying at a mansion on Vancouver Island.  

Harry and Meghan will stop using their HRH titles and withdraw from royal duties, including official military appointments, from this spring.
