DIARY: Wight’s Royal honour makes him an official Victorian gentleman

Clearly, Robin Wight, the chairman of WCRS, is still bitten by the hard-work bug. Despite running an international agency and per-sonally curating a remarkable collection of world-famous bow ties, Wight has found the time to have been awarded the Royal Victorian Order. By Her Majesty, the Queen, no less.

Clearly, Robin Wight, the chairman of WCRS, is still bitten by the

hard-work bug. Despite running an international agency and per-sonally

curating a remarkable collection of world-famous bow ties, Wight has

found the time to have been awarded the Royal Victorian Order. By Her

Majesty, the Queen, no less.



Apparently, the award was not intended as a recognition of services to

eccentricity, but in fact is for his work for the Duke of Edinburgh’s

Award Scheme, a task that, among other challenges, has involved the

patronage of a multitude of dinners and lunch-eons. Nice work if you can

get it for the man who is known as a legend in his own lunchtime.



We hear he’s due at the Palace soon to pick up the award in person. From

now on, he will be known as Commander of the Victorian Order. It all

makes a strange kind of sense.
