Welcome to our Summer issue. This month I have had the pleasure of writing my Editor’s letter whilst overlooking The Alps, seated in the grand lobby of The Grand Kronenhof Hotel in Pontresina, St Moritz: a spectacular place to enable creative thoughts to flow.
I have dedicated this issue to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, who turned 90 this year, a Monarch of such greatness that it makes me proud to be British. She is a woman who has dedicated her whole life to public service, and has been Head of State for the United Kingdom for over 60 years. In July, Theresa May became her 13th Prime Minister, her first having been the war leader Winston Churchill, born in 1874.
The Queen’s one true love without doubt is the man who has stood by her side throughout her reign. Prince Philip is her rock and we share with you their love story on page 26.
I have decided to dedicate the whole of this Editor’s Letter as a tribute to the Queen, so for details on our exciting features on business, luxury, travel and lifestyle, please see the summaries on the Contents page overleaf. I hope there is something for each of you to enjoy.
