Meanwhile, Kate's husband the Duke of Cambridge marked becoming royal patron of a homeless charity by serving lunch to its clients – and quipped he was on trial for a job.

Wearing an apron, William dished out spaghetti bolognese to men and women who had patiently queued for the free lunch made by staff and volunteers at homelessness charity The Passage in central London.

William ended his tour by meeting participants in the charity's Home for Good project, a befriending scheme where trained volunteers are matched with a former homeless person becoming independent and living in their own accommodation.

Later in the day, back at Kensington Palace, The Duke of Sussex told of sport's "amazing ability to change people's lives" as he kicked off a rugby charity fundraising night attended by past and present England stars.

Harry met the current crop of national players and their head coach Eddie Jones at the event and England's Rugby World Cup winning heroes – Jonny Wilkinson, Lawrence Dallaglio and Jason Leonard.

The night was in aid of Try for Change, an England rugby programme committed to supporting disadvantaged young people, and mental health charity the Jonny Wilkinson Foundation.

And the Prince of Wales told children he hopes they will make a "real difference to the future of this country" as he visited a school affected by the Grenfell Tower tragedy.

Charles visited the Kensington Aldridge Academy, which was forced to forced to temporarily relocate following the June 2017 blaze.
