Desert Palm team Rashid Albwardy and Alan Meeker took the win in a thrilling final, defeating the UAE Polo Team patroned by HH Sheikha Maitha Bint Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum. The Cartier Red and Abu Dhabi teams agreed on a tie for third place due to the unfortunate sandstorm that blew in that morning.
Following the game, guests including HRH Prince Abbas bin Ali bin Nayef of Jordan and his wife, HRH Princess Sima Al Abbas and HRH Princess Yasmine Bint Asem bin Nayef, American actress and socialite Olivia Palermo and Lebanese singer Ragheb Alama relaxed in a joyful atmosphere and enjoyed Cartier’s hospitality at the lavish Cartier Villa which was beautifully decorated to accommodate the new Clé de Cartier watch creations. Presented for the first time after its global launch at the SIHH in January, the exquisite collection was discovered by intrigued spectators during afternoon tea time. The elegant pieces will be available in all boutiques worldwide starting April 2015.
