Argentina polo player shared a silly snapshot alongside Harry at a local store. "Shopping for our wives," Figueras wrote in an Instagram caption.

"A big thank you to Tokyo for your generous hospitality and kindness towards us. And of course, for your continued support of Sentebale," he added.

During Harry and Figueras' time in Tokyo, the pair advocated for HIV/AIDS research and treatment. Harry stopped in Japan before his scheduled polo match in Singapore for the nonprofit he founded alongside Prince Seeiso.

"I have long believed that sport is a conduit for healing – not just for the mind and body but the world. The sport requires having a dream and the need for community," Harry said at the ISPS Sports Values Summit-Special Edition.

Figueras supported Harry throughout the public appearance, and the American-based royal highlighted the significance of living an active life. His love of athleticism is the foundation of the Invictus Games — a multi-sport event Harry created for injured, wounded and sick servicemen.

Prior to Harry leaving the monarchy, he was the patron of several sports-focused causes.

"Whether banded together in victory or showing up with respect in loss, no one ever crosses a finish line or scores a goal without the help and belief of others," the veteran passionately said. "The lessons we learn on the field are often the same principles of philanthropy; that a mission, hard work, dedication, and partnership can make even the impossible, possible."

"That is what giving back requires, and we are all capable of creating or joining a team to do so," Harry added.

While Harry and Figueras explored the Asian metropolis, Meghan Markle was spotted at a Taylor Swift concert. The Royal Observer reported Meghan enjoyed the pop star's performance despite Swift refusing to be a guest on her podcast, "Archetypes."

The Duchess of Sussex was seen dancing to hit songs like "You Belong With Me."
