The Queen joined polo aficionados at Windsor Great Park to watch the biggest names in the sport compete in the Cartier Queen’s Cup yesterday.

One of the most prestigious events of the British sporting calendar, the occasion also marked Cartier’s three decades of polo sponsorship at Guards Polo Club near Egham.

Before the match started, the band of the Grenadier Guards paraded on the field into the shape of the figure 30 to celebrate the occasion.

The summit of the day was the exhilarating Queen’s Cup final between Zacara and Talandracas, with the former winning the trophy.

The tournament, which began on Tuesday May 20, saw three weeks of electrifying high-goal polo reach its climax with the historic final in front of the Queen.

To mirror the impressive talent on the field, Cartier invited guests from the worlds of stage, screen, sport, society, and literature into the Cartier enclosure, where Champagne and a lunch created by Mosimann’s were enjoyed.
