The Queen was on hand to present the prizes to the victors at the Cartier Queen’s Cup at Guards Polo Club, near Egham, on Sunday June 16.

Her majesty watched on as the biggest names in polo competed to win the tournament, which began on Wednesday May 22 with 16 teams but would see just one victorious.

Cartier executive chairman Arnaud Bamberger and managing director Laurent Feniou joined Her Majesty, alongside a crowd of polo aficionados including the likes of Sharon Stone, Clare Balding and Katherine Jenkins.

The summit of the day was the exhilarating final match as Zacara took on El Remanso in the Queen’s Cup final. Both came to the final unbeaten in this year’s competition. Lyndon Lea’s Team Zacara, however, fresh from their victory at the US Open, proved to be an unstoppable force and won the match 15 to 9.

To mirror the talent on the field, Cartier invited guests from the worlds of stage, screen, sport, society, and literature into the Cartier enclosure, welcoming them to an elegant reception serving Champagne and a lunch created by Mosimann’s.
