He may have been on the losing team in Saturday’s polo match against Prince William, but Santa Barbara Polo Club president Wesley Ru couldn’t have nicer things to say about the royal couple!

Prince William and Kate Middleton left quite the impression on those lucky enough to meet the royal couple during their California adventure this past weekend! So did the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge demand the royal treatment when they made their way to Santa Barbara for Saturday’s charity polo match? Very much the opposite! chatted with Santa Barbara Polo Club president Wesley Ru, who said, “They are actually more humble then most people I deal with.”

Prince William may be competitive in his polo game, but Wesley says he and Kate aren’t quite so serious off the field! “They have that British sense of humor, that dry sense of humor,” says Wesley, “That really loosened things up a bit.”

So are Prince William and Kate Middleton the most down-to-earth royals?! Wesley sure thinks so!

“They are really nice, normal kids. They have tons of responsibility and represent an entire country, but besides that, they are 29-year-old kids,” he said, “Overall, they are very down-to-earth, charming people. There is nothing un-ordinary about them.”

Wesley was thrilled to have the prince play at the Santa Barbara Polo Club, and explains that William may have been equally excited! “His comments to me were, ‘These are the best fields I’ve ever played on!'” says Wesley, “I took that as a major compliment.”

So does this mean Prince William will return for a rematch any time soon?

“Well, we talked about it,” says Wesley, “He wants to come back because Santa Barbara has the best fields in all of the United States.”

And we’d love to have him back! The royal couple may have only been in California for 3 days, but that seemed to be plenty of time to make Californians fall in love with them!
