An Indian billionaire couple to pay for Prince Charles’ birthday bash

Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall visit the baby Prince of CambridgeAn Indian billionaire couple will splash out on hundreds of thousands of pounds for the Philhamonia Orchestra for Prince Charles’ 65th birthday bash in November.

 

Cyrus and Priya Vandrevala are arranging a huge concert by the Philhamonia Orchestra in November as entertainment to go alongside the three-course-meal at Buckingham Palace in London to mark the 65th birthday of the prince.

 

A spokesman for the palace has confirmed the party will go ahead on November 21 – a week after the prince’s birthday on November 14 – but refused to comment as it is a “private” event.

 

The Prince of Wales – who is a patron of the London-based orchestra – will select the music himself and the whole set will focus on the German composer Wagner.

 

The couple – who live in the affluent area of Holland Park, central London – are involved in a number of charity projects through the Vandrevala foundation and are said to be rather friendly with Charles and his wife Duchess Camilla.

 

A spokesman for the Vandrevala Foundation is quoted the Indian Times newspaper as saying: “The evening connects with their philanthropic work as the Philharmonia Orchestra supports impoverished performers through its trust.”
