This year, the wedding of Prince Harry and American actor Meghan Markle in May was a major subject of discussion not just in England but also across the world as millions watched the event live on television. There’s something about royalty. And it is with this in mind that we at Fortune India decided to focus on royalty as the central theme for this year’s luxury issue. For nearly a decade, the Fortune India luxury issue has tried to serve as a thinking person’s guide to consumption.” In keeping with that tradition, we picked out three of the world’s most exclusive businesses with a royal connection: milliners Lock & Co., perfumer Floris, and shotgun maker Purdey. It takes you on a fascinating journey into their world and brings you delightful anecdotes from these businesses. For instance, Gary Oldman wore royal perfumer Floris’ Special No. 127 while playing Winston Churchill in Darkest Hour since the fragrance was a favourite of Churchill. And hat maker Lock and Co.’s master hatter is an Indian by the name of Jayesh Vaghela. Luxury, to the connoisseur of the good life, is not necessarily about wearing or using expensive things. Real luxury is about pure whimsy, about picking up something just because you can. Just like royalty. This issue also marks an important milestone for us at Fortune India. It is the 100th issue of the magazine, and one which gives us a chance to stop for a moment and look back at the journey so far, the people, businesses, and issues we have written about ever since we started off in October 2010. And it’s been a wonderful ride for us bringing you those stories, even as the Indian economy and the markets registered one milestone after another. We’ve put together a 100th edition special package for you. Elsewhere in this issue, we also bring you the annual Fortune Change the World list, companies which are doing good while turning in a profit. Number one on this list of 57 companies from across the world is Reliance Jio of Mukesh Ambani.
