This year’s Cartier Queen’s Cup Final was a bit of an oddity – a blisteringly hot English day in June. With temperatures hitting 31 degrees at the annual polo tournament on Sunday, sunglasses, florals and keep-cool whites were the order of the day.
The Cartier enclosure itself was blooming, designed to evoke the charms of an English garden. More than 1,000 peonies were arranged next to sweet peas, aliums, blue delphiniums, clematis, thyme, hydrangeas and – of course – English roses.
