Princes at the Palace

01 December 2011

One way and another, Aisleyne had a right royal evening on December 1st. Along with her guest, Bianca Gascoigne, she attended the "Princes at the Palace - an evening in aid of The Prince's Trust" held at the Rubens at the Palace Hotel in Buckingham Palace Road, opposite The Royal Mews, Buckingham Palace

After walking the red carpet in a fetching black skirt/top combo and gold/black Carvela shoes, and sipping a glass or two of champagne, Aisleyne and her fellow "celebrity and wealthy guests", including Vanessa Feltz and Ben Ofoedu, sat down to a sumptuous 3 course meal. Aisleyne's choices from the menu were:

Baked Somerset Brie with Pine Nuts and Balsamic Onions
Roasted Free Range Chicken, Chestnut Mushrooms, Winter Vegetables and Mushroom Grain Sauce
Drambuie Whiskey Creme Brulee

At the end of the evening, the ladies present also enjoyed the "Reveal" - the unmasking of 25 Prince Charmings, in a presentation choreographed by Ryan Jenkins

After a live performance by Platinum album group The Overtones, there was by a charity auction hosted by Giles Vickers-Jones with an introduction by TV "Loose Woman" Jane McDonald, and what was described as "a moving account" by a Prince's Trust Ambassador.

That wasn't the end of the evening by any means. After collecting their goodie bags containing (among other things) a clutch bag from Aspinals of London, lingerie by Rigby and Peller and various CDs, Aisleyne, Bianca and the other guests went on to the after-party at the suitably regal-sounding Kings Club (where Aisleyne had been the previous night, for the Chelsea Monthly launch party).

So, another enjoyable evening - and lots of money raised for a very worthy cause. Well done, all concerned.
