The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall, The Countess of Wessex and Princess Beatrice alongside her parents The Duke of York and The Duchess of York, attended the service.

At the service, Prince Charles was joined by Sir David’s widow, Lady Carina Fitzalan-Howard, to lay flowers at a memorial stone dedicated to the star near Poets’ Corner. His memorial stone is in the same place as people such as William Shakespeare and Charles Dickens.

Stars from over fifty years of television attended the memorial from Ronnie Corbett to Joanna Lumley. Also in attendance were the likes of Sienna Miller, Betty Boothroyd, Sir John Major as well as fellow journalists Andrew Marr, Andrew Neil, Terry Wogan and hundreds of other celebrities.

Sir David died of a heart attack in August of last year while on board the Queen Elizabeth cruise ship. He conducted many interviews over his long career including interviewing all eight Prime Ministers from Harold Wilson to David Cameron and seven presidents from Richard Nixon to George W. Bush.

His interview with Richard Nixon was his most famous one where he persuaded the disgraced politician to admit that he “let the American people down”.
