This time last year here at Meiji Designs we had the pleasure of meeting His Royal Highness The Duke of York. As you can imagine we were beyond excited, but also incredibly nervous. It was both our first time meeting royalty!
The meeting was all thanks to the University of Huddersfield. Here at Meiji Designs we are supported by their enterprise team, who give help to graduates who have set up their own businesses. We were both honoured to be invited along to an event not only to meet His Royal Highness, but also to pitch our business development plans to him.
The Duke of York, now Chancellor of the University of Huddersfield, is on a mission to boost UK businesses and entrepreneurialism, and was in Huddersfield to present The Duke of York Young Entrepreneur Awards for 2015.
Meiji Designs were later named as one of the Dukes Entrepreneurs of the Week, which we were over the moon about.
Finally, we had the opportunity to present His Royal Highness with a gift. Of course we gave him one of our matching scarf and pocket square sets, and suggested he give the scarf to one of his daughters.
We loved it, such a proud day for Meiji Designs!
