In the long tradition of the strong friendship between Britain and the U.S., Park Avenue's Martin and Jean Shafiroff hosted a cocktail party for The Honorable Harry Herbert of Highclere Castle recently.



For the cognoscenti, almost the whole world knows that Highclere is better known as DOWNTON ABBEY of the famed TV series. Harry, second of three children of the 7th Earl of Carnarvon, was on a flying visit to tell the Yanks about his Highclere Racing Stud. Oh yes, the reason to mention Harry being second son means, of course, in England where primogeniture rules on inheritance, his older brother is the 8th Earl of Carnarvon.



An avid horseman following in the footsteps of his late father, Harry has created Europe's most thriving Stud and Stable. For people who love horses and racing, he creates consortia wherein the "average" person buys into a racehorse. Not only does he have a highly profitable business - but his horses are winners! His father trained Queen Elizabeth II's horses, and a strong family relationship endures to this day. In fact, Harry was just in Buckingham Palace to hand the Queen the Cartier Trophy for her horse, The Estimator.



A wonderful blend of British, Commonwealth and Americans came to chat and sip. And, when Harry regaled everyone with some Highclere stories about Butlers, and ancestors who discovered King Tut's tomb, everyone listened! Jean and Martin gathered a small, elegant, glittering crowd, including, a black-tied Geoffrey Bradfield, Alex Donner, Michele Herbert, Ijaz Malik, Muna Rihani al Nasser, Amy Hoadley, Chele Chiavacci, Isabelle Arpagian, Richard Farley, Joseph Fichera, CeCe and Lee Black, Peter Kairis of Graff, Arnie and Paola Rosenshein and English photographer Alistair Morrison.



Clearly the friendship between Britain and the U.S. grows stronger every passing year.
