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.”
