Along with the dozens of crowned heads of state and other glitterati at Friday's much-ballyhooed royal wedding, a member of hedge fund royalty took in the spectacle at London's Westminster Abbey.
Michael Hintze, the founder of hedge fund CQS, snared one of the 1,900 coveted invites to the lavish nuptials of Prince William and Kate Middleton, the newly-minted Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. The billionaire is something of a family friend and serves as chairman of the Prince's Foundation for the Built Environment, founded by Prince Charles, the groom's father, to encourage traditional urban design and architecture.
After the service, Hintze was glowing like a newly-married bride himself.
"When she came in with that veil over her face, it was almost ethereal, like she was coming through a cloud—an angel coming into the Abbey," he gushed to The Wall Street Journal.
