His comments may be read as a veiled criticism of Downing Street, given that senior civil servant Sue Gray found boozy drinks parties were held at the heart of Government on the eve of the service – albeit not attended by Prime Minister Boris Johnson himself.

No 10 apologised to Buckingham Palace after reports of the gatherings first came to light in January.
