A Game of the Queen, Cartier and Polo
The Queen’s Ground at Guards Polo Club, Windsor Great Park saw the biggest names in the world of polo battle to win the Cartier Queen’s Cup 2014.
Considered as one of the most prestigious British sporting events, the Cartier Queen’s Cup Final on 15 June 2014 was graced by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, and joined by Arnaud M Bamberger, Executive Chairman Cartier Ltd, and Laurent Feniou, Managing Director Cartier Ltd.
To kick off the match, the Band of the Grenadier Guards paraded on the field, forming the figure 30 in celebration of Cartier’s three decades of sponsorship of polo at Guards Polo Club. In line with their reputation as ‘The King of Jewellers’, Cartier has a long-standing tradition of supporting polo, a sport favoured by royalties and aristocrats the world over.
Exquisite floral creations by Britain’s top florist, John Carter, elegantly encapsulated Cartier’s 30 years of polo sponsorship. The tables were adorned with Cartier’s signature red; red dahlias, red antirrhinums, deep pink peonies, artichokes, red rose plants and red gladioli. A display of Cartier polo photographs from the past 30 years was prominently positioned inside the marquee.
Adding glamour to the final match were big-name guests from the worlds of stage, screen, sport, society, and literature. Seen mingling with the impressive crowd in the Cartier enclosure were the likes of HM Queen Noor of Jordan, Boris Becker, Michelle Dockery, Kristen Davis, and Bianca Jagger, where they were served Cartier champagne and a gorgeous lunch created by Mosimann’s.
