WHO: Prince Harry and St. Regis Connoisseur Nacho Figueras celebrated the annual invitation-only Sentebale Royal Salute Polo Cup along with Lisa Holladay, Global Brand Leader, St. Regis Hotels & Resorts, and Peggy Fang Roe, Chief Sales & Marketing Officer, Marriott International Asia Pacific.

Notable VIPs and attendees included: Gemma Chan (Dr Who), Karen Gillan (Guardians of the Galaxy) and Joanne Froggatt (Downton Abbey).

WHAT:           St. Regis Hotels & Resorts joined Sentebale for the highly anticipated 2017 Sentebale Royal Salute Polo Cup, with the match taking place at the Singapore Polo Club on June 5. An annual fundraising event, the match raised money for Prince Harry’s charity Sentebale, which supports vulnerable children and young people affected by HIV in Lesotho and Botswana in southern Africa. Officially kicking off the polo season, Prince Harry captained the Sentebale team, competing against St. Regis Connoisseur and Sentebale Ambassador Nacho Figueras who captained the St. Regis Team. In an exhilarating match, the Sentebale ISPS Handa Team clinched victory over the St. Regis Team by three points. Following a spirited day at the polo field, The St. Regis Singapore hosted an exclusive Patrons Dinner on Monday evening, where guests ravished in a tropical paradise-themed ballroom, inspired by Singapore’s UNESCO botanical gardens.

St. Regis has long been associated with the world of polo, beginning at the turn of the last century when St. Regis’ founding family, the Astors, were a prominent fixture at the matches on Manhattan’s Governors Island.  That association continues today, expanding around the world alongside the brand’s growth, and the past few years have seen St. Regis hosting spirited polo matches in the United Kingdom, United States, Jaipur, Thailand, Singapore, Dubai and South America among other global destinations.  St. Regis polo events have attracted a glamorous group of followers over the years, with recent attendees to events around the world including Princess Beatrice, Valentino, Jessica Hart, Michelle Harper, Olivia Chantecaille, Rosamund Pike, Jason Wu and Joely Richardson, among many others.
