Royal welcomeJuly 11th, 2012 at 5:58 am by Bob Grip under FOX10 News, Uncategorized
Mobile rolled out the royal carpet Tuesday night at Spencer House, the ancestral home of the late, Princess Diana’s family.
The private palace is adjacent to Green Park and around the corner from the Ritz Hotel, if that gives you an idea about the neighborhood.
City, county and business leaders sponsored a posh reception at Spencer House to provide an elegant meet and greet that included Airbus COO Fabrice Bregier, EADS chairman Tom Enders as well as officials from ST Aerospace, who met privately with Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley.
Rep. Jo Bonner addressed the gathering with the first half of President John F. Kennedy’s quote, “Success has many fathers…” (the rest of the quote, “…but failure is an orphan”, didn’t apply here) praising the many people in the room who worked together to bring the $600 million dollar Airbus deal to Mobile.
