Friend: Why Prince Harry Will Be a 'Great Uncle'

Much has been said what kind of parents Prince William and Kate Middleton will be, but according to a friend, one other member of the royal family is well-suited to being around a new baby too: Prince Harry.

"He's going to be a great uncle," polo player Nacho Figueras told ABC News on Saturday at the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic near New York City. "He loves kids, he loves children and he's a great guy overall."

Figueras, 36, and Prince Harry, 28, have friends for a number of years, and in addition to playing polo together, they both work with the charity Sentebale, which helps children in Lesotho, Africa.

"He's a really great guy who is really committed to [the cause]," says Figueras of the prince. "It's an honor for me to help him."

In addition to his philanthropic work, Figueras, who was injured last month in a polo match, is focused on his recuperation (which will take place in his native Argentina)-and what he'll get the royal baby when he or she is born this summer.

"I don't know," he said of what he'll send. "A horse!"
