More than 120 guests from the entertainment, fashion and music industry arrived at the Guards Polo Club in their best summer cocktail attire. Bellboys dressed in Cartier livery, greeted guests at the entrance, handing them Cartier’s own-label Champagne.
Guests including Micheal Ward, Charithra Chandran, Grace Carter, Jessica Madsen, Tom Rhys Harries, Conrad Khan, Ahmed Malek, Marco Capaldo, Priya Ahluwalia, Isabel Getty and Lady Amelia and Lady Eliza Spencer, had a light lunch inside a pristine white tent that was decorated with pink and red flowers.
On the grass, the Murus Sanctus team beat La Magdeleine and became the third French lineup to win the Queen’s Cup. The cup is named after the late Queen Elizabeth II, while Prince Philip was president of the club for more than 60 years. Laurent Feniou, managing director of Cartier in the U.K. presented the cup to the winners.
After the game, afternoon tea, including scones with jam and cream, duck egg and smoked salmon sandwiches, was served outside.
The English singer and songwriter Grace Carter took to the podium in the afternoon to perform a brief, intimate set. Carter will release her third album “A Little Lost, A Little Found,” on July 21.
In May, Cartier staged events in Florence and Lucca, Italy to unveil 80 never-before-seen pieces from the new “Le Voyage Recommencé” collection.
