THEY WERE ALL THERE...British Royalty, Hollywood A-Listers, legendary athletes, beauty queens, NYC socialites and top business executives. They all came together to support the Duke of Edinburgh's International Award and Young Americans' Challenge at the Pierre Hotel. Sponsored by RBC Capital, the night was filled with entertainment, heart-warming speeches, much laughter and great food. The ballroom was bursting with British tradition... from the sound of bagpipes to the smell of Yorkshire Roses, to the haunting music of BILLY ELLIOT. HRH The Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex, graciously greeted guests with a smile, clearly enjoying the fun and laughter of the guests, and the special message of the Speakers.
