Prince Harry's close friend has sent a "message of love" to Meghan Markle on social media.

Nacho Figueras, an Argentinian polo player and close friend of the Duke of Sussex, took to Instagram to praise the Duchess of Sussex's jam.

In March, Meghan, 42, announced the launch of her new lifestyle brand, American Riviera Orchard.

The brand will focus on selling jams, cookbooks, tableware, cutlery among other products.

To promote her new brand, which is named after the Montecito Riviera where Meghan and Harry live, the duchess sent some jars of strawberry jam to her influencer friends.

One such friend was Figueras, who played polo with Prince Harry, 39, in Florida last week.

Taking to Instagram, Figueras wrote: "Did I tell you I love your jam?"

The polo player included a strawberry emoji and tagged Meghan's new lifestyle brand, "@americanrivieraorchard".

The Duchess of Sussex has always had an interest in lifestyle, having run a lifestyle blog titled The Tig before marrying Prince Harry.

The blog, named after Meghan's favourite red wine Tignanello, included recipes, dating advice and fashion tips.

It was widely speculated that the duchess would return to the realm of lifestyle after stepping down from working royal duties in 2020.

Meghan did have a role in the TV drama Suits for seven years, however, she confirmed she would not return to acting following her departure from working engagements.

Another said: "Thank you for being a true friend to Prince Harry and welcoming the Duchess of Sussex with an open arms."

A third wrote: "We should all be so lucky to have a friend like you in our lives. That does look yummy from all the way here."
