Windswept Mick Jagger arrives with glamourous wife at banquet for King Charles

A windswept Mick Jagger arrived with his glamourous wife at a banquet for King Charles and Queen Camilla.

The Rolling Stones singer, 80, arrived with Melanie Hamrick, 36, ahead of the event to mark the King’s state visit to France.

Mr Jagger and Ms Hamrick were two of around 180 guests invited to the dinner at the Palace of Versailles.

They joined other famous faces such as Hugh Grant, Emma Mackey, and Charlotte Gainsbourg

The Mail reported that Mr Jagger had travelled from his stately home, the Château de Fourchette (Fork House), for the occasion.

The dinner is allegedly being held in the palace’s Hall of Mirrors.

Built in 1684 on the orders of King Louis XIV, the hall is the centrepiece of the palace. Its name comes from the 357 mirrors that hang across a 220ft space.

The guest list was reportedly drawn up to reflect the breadth of the UK-France relationship and its notable achievements.

Other guests included Ken Follet, Amélie Mauresmo, Kate Elliott, Sir Christopher Hampton, Bernard Arnault, and Princess Zahra Aga Khan.

The guests will be served a meal that includes lobster, poached Bresse chicken, and raspberry confection.

They will not be served foie gras, a speciality allegedly favoured by King Charles, because of animal welfare concerns.

On the other hand, the guests may be served mushrooms which are considered a favourite because they remind the King of his mother, Queen Elizabeth II.

The dinner marks one of the key moments in a state visit which was originally meant to happen earlier this year.

In March, the Royal Family announced the King and Queen’s state visit had been postponed due to protests in France over the rising retirement age.

Alongside the dinner at the Palace of Versailles, the royal couple are due to undertake a busy schedule of engagements.

Earlier today, King Charles lit the eternal flame underneath the Arc De Triomphe that acts to remember the lives lost during World War 1 and World War 2.
