Galvin Weston


‘Social media is crucial in getting your pink truffles to conquer the world,’ says Galvin Weston, who chairs Charbonnel et Walker’s and is the Queen’s favourite chocolatier. The Royal Warrant-holding brand’s legacy dates back to 1875 (handmade to the traditional recipes of Mme Charbonnel) and continues to make appearances at major social events in the HNW sphere. The chocolates fly off the shelves at Fortnum & Mason, John Lewis, Waitrose and Harrods. ‘A beautifully presented box of Charbonnel et Walker chocolates is… an exquisite expression of care and affection,’ the company assures. Iconic past customers include Sir Alec Guinness and Princess Diana.
