Prince Robert and Princess Julie continued the celebrations of the 75th anniversary of the Dillon family's purchase of Chateau Haut-Brion. Yesterday they hosted a gala at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. I mentioned in my posting about the London dinner that they are hosting a series of celebrations all over the world. The New York leg of this international affair was attended by socialites, aristocrats and President Bill Clinton. Princess Julie looked lovely, as usual. She is pictured above with Dillon Bryan and his interesting choice of footwear.
While he was in The United States Prince Robert gave a brief interview with FOX Business Network. He discussed Domaine Clarence Dillon's venture into the production of a lower cost wine. Robert was professional and informative. The interviewer kept referring to him as "prince" as if were about to start playing a purple guitar. I found that mildly annoying. People always seem to forget that if you have doubts about how to address someone that a simple Sir or Ma'am will put you on the right path.
