Former Taoiseach Enda Kenny makes surprise appearance on stage with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle

ENDA KENNY joined Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on stage for a trophy presentation at a charity polo match.

Both were guests at the Sentebale Cup which was held at Windsor, where Prince Harry's team emerged victorious.

Meghan presented the winning trophy to her husband and gave him a rare public kiss.

The former Taoiseach was all dressed up for his esteemed company, wearing a blazer and blue and white striped shirt as he appeared to have a few words with Prince Harry just before the presentation.

The event raises funds for Harry's charity Sentebale, an organisation which works with children and teenagers in Lesotho and Botswana who are coming to terms with being HIV positive, have Aids or have lost their parents to the disease.

Nacho Figueras, who is a Sentebale ambassador and was invited to Harry's wedding with wife Delfina Blaquier, said about Meghan: "She's lovely, she's wonderful, I'm very happy for Harry.

"I think they're both lucky to have found each other, I'm very excited about this new chapter in his life."

He said about his brief chat with the duchess while on stage: "She said that she enjoyed the game. She watched the game with my wife, which is wonderful because they were able to talk about polo and she could learn more about the game."

Enda Kenny and the other spectators at the match dined on a starter of asparagus and prosciutto, and for the main course a roasted rump of salt marsh lamb, followed by a trio of desserts including raspberries and cream.

It's a complete mystery as to how the former Taoiseach ended up rubbing shoulders with the royals on the podium.

Judging by his face, he doesn't look too sure either!
