A guest of Xerjoff Royal Charity Polo Cup on Saturday 14th July, I enjoyed the glitzy event with series of charity auctions, lunch, followed by a quintessentially British afternoon tea, and exceptionally exciting polo games.
Jeremy Irons, Queen’s Brian May with wife Anita Dobson, Glynis Barber, Patricia Heaton, Sabrina Percy, Phineas Page, Emma Noble and Charlie Gilkes were among those enjoying a three-course lunch carefully prepared by Bubble Food, the couture of event food design.
It was Sergio Momo, founder of the luxury Italian perfume house XERJOFF who hosted what has now become acknowledged as the highlight of the social calendar. At the event, the Duke of Sussex, Prince Hurry was watched by a host of celebrities as he took part in the afternoon’s much-anticipated match.
The Duke of Sussex was competing for the Aston Martin team as they went head-to-head against the Innerplace team. The polo game had guests on the edge of their seats, as both teams battled to win the first-ever XERJOFF CUP–truly chukka’s dawn!
Victory went to Aston Martin becoming the first winners of the XERJOFF ROYAL CHARITY POLO CUP beating Innerplace 4-2.
Founded 10 years ago, the XERJOFF brand was launched by Sergio Momo with the aim of blending the most luxurious materials to complement the most affluent global lifestyles through the combination of old-world craftsmanship, rare raw materials and a contemporary artistic sensibility. The result is a collection of some of the most exquisite, unique and limited edition scents available in the world today.
