The Duke of Cambridge had invited a host of A-List stars including Kate Moss, Emma Watson, Cate Blanchett, Cara Delevingne and Helena Bonham Carter to the event and he highlighted Ralph's support before guests tucked into their meal.

In a speech, he said: "I am enormously grateful to Ralph Lauren for his generosity, and to all of you who so kindly support the hospital. You should know that what you do saves lives and gives hope to thousands of people."

According to the Daily Mail, Wills served his guests a seared hot-smoked salmon with apple and pink peppercorn puree on a salad of broad beans, green beans and sugar snaps for starter; a main course of roasted fillet of beef with caramelised shallot and tarragon butter, orange braised baby gem, steamed English asparagus and a Jersey Royal and summer herb crush; and treated them to a chocolate and salted caramel tart with creme fraiche ice cream and caramelised bananas for pud.
