To anyone who has ever been blessed enough to spend quality time with Ralph Lauren, he’s always been a king – a king of American fashion and business, of the American lifestyle, of philanthropy, and, of course, the delicious fares served at The Polo Bar.

He has received many recognitions over time, and today, Mr. Lauren was honored in a very special setting –Buckingham Palace.  He was made an Honorary Knight Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (KBE) for Services to Fashion, and the honorary knighthood insignia was presented to him by His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales in a private ceremony.
