Prince Robert Honoured

Together with French chef Jacques Pépin, Prince Robert was honoured with a Tribute Dinner at the New York City Wine & Food Festival, yesterday. For the first time in its history, the Festival honoured two individuals for their "immense contributions (...) in the culinary and wine worlds" (from here).

Since 2008 when his mother Joan de Mouchy stepped down, Prince Robert is the president of Domaine Clarence Dillon, a company that owns a couple of Bordeaux wine estates and was named after Clarence Dillon, an American financier. Clarence Dillon was Prince Roberts great-grandfather on his maternal side, Prince Robert's father was Prince Charles of Luxembourg, the fifth child and second son of Grand Duchess Charlotte and Prince Félix.

An extended photo gallery of the guests and the delicious looking food at the event at New York City's Pier 60 is available at the Billy Farrell Agency.
