The British royal attended the ceremony, where he was joined by the likes of James Bond star Pierce Brosnan, Little Women actor James Norton and Marcella actress Anna Friel.

During an on-stage appearance, Prince Charles thanked guests for attending during uncertain times.

“Due to circumstances beyond our control we are not joined by as many of those who make such an immense difference to my trust internationally, as we originally planned," the royal said. “However, I just wanted to thank them for all their continued support and dedication to my trust.”

The prince was also pictured greeting guests with the namaste gesture, rather than shaking hands, as per new royal protocal given the spread of coronavirus.
