This past Saturday, St. Regis Hotels & Resorts hosted the sixth annual St. Regis International Cup at Cowdray Park Polo Club in West Sussex. This year’s 26 goal polo test match was the first match in the UK International Series and saw the South America team triumph over Audi England 11-9. The St. Regis International Cup came on the heels of the May 15th Sentebale Royal Salute Polo Cup in Greenwich, Connecticut where the Sentebale Land Rover team, led by HRH Prince Henry of Wales, defeated the Nacho Figueras-led St. Regis Team 4-3.
Paul James, Global Brand Leader, St. Regis, The Luxury Collection and W Hotels Worldwide, hosted the afternoon’s distinguished guests, which included Anna Friel, Poppy Delevingne, Olivia Grant, Angela Scanlon, Julia Sarr-Jamois, Laura Whitmore, Amber Atherton, Morwenna Lytton Cobbold, Alice Fox-Pitt and Charlie Casey-Hayford, among others.
VIP guests watched the match from the St. Regis hospitality marquee where they were served the St. Regis signature cocktail, the Bloody Mary, first concocted at the original St. Regis Hotel in New York over 100 years ago and Perrier Jouët Grand Brut Champagne. Guests were also treated to a selection of mouth-watering canapés including brie and fig relish doughnuts and Bloody Mary lollipops, followed by The St. Regis Afternoon Tea, by The Lanesborough London, a St. Regis Hotel.
