Zara Tindall suffered a major blow as she lost a polo match against Prince Harry's pal in Australia.

Mike Tindall and his wife attended the Pacific Fair Magic Millions Polo and Showjumping event on Sunday, where they were seen sharing a kiss.

Zara, 42, competed in the game of polo, while her team was matched up against the Duke of Sussex's close friend Nacho Figueras.

The polo game took place at Doug Jennings Park on the Gold Coast in Australia.

The crowds looked delighted as the royal mother-of-three rode on horseback.

Figueras, who was once dubbed the "David Beckham of Polo", and his team won the game, beating the royal equestrian.

This was despite Zara scoring the first goal of the thrilling match. This was reported by the event's Instagram page.

When she arrived at the event, the 42-year-old sported a chic £450 summery striped dress from Rebecca Vallance.

This nautical-inspired button-up dress which Zara teamed with white sandal wedges was perfect for the warm weather in Australia.

The mother-of-three also wore a wide-brim hat and some sunglasses.

She later swapped this out for riding gear as she prepared to take part in the day's equestrian activities.

Elsewhere Mike cut a dapper figure in a navy blazer and tie, worn with beige chinos.

The exciting event saw professional polo players, including Zara, Figueras and Delfina Blaquier, play two games.

Figueras is known for his close friendship with Prince Harry. It is understood that their friendship dates back to 2007.

He has since become a supportive figure in Harry's life away from the Royal Family.

They have played polo alongside one another in various matches over the years.

Figueras has also become one of Harry and Meghan Markle's most vocal supporters, often praising them in interviews.
