Giving her analysis of his body language after the match, she said he was "virtually ignored".

Judi said: "Harry probably doesn't have any body language for moments like this – when he is left alone, un-hosted and virtually ignored by the others at the event."

The expert went on to say that the former royal looked "awkward" when he was left on his own as he didn't have the "adoring gaze from his wife to bathe in".

Meghan Markle had decided to stay home in California as Harry went on the solo trip to Asia.

Prince Harry then greeted his long-time close friend Nacho Figueras with a "hand slap shake" after they appeared in the match together.

Judi says that their handshake followed by a friendly hug symbolized their "friendship" and "machismo" but didn't impress the woman they were with, as they were ignoring the friends and looking down at their phones.

Judi explained that now Harry no longer has royal status, he has to become used to being treated differently.

Judi said: "As a royal, he would have been guaranteed to be the centre of attention in a group setting and used to getting admiring smiles of polite flattery when he was out at events, but that clearly isn’t a given now his royal status has gone."

The annual Polo Cup has been running since 2010, and to date has raised over £11 million to support Sentebale's work with children and young people affected by poverty, inequality and HIV/AIDS in southern Africa.
