So I am finally home :) The pictures I posted already from the Q&A are already circulating around tumblr (and oh god isn’t it a weird feeling when you find your dash full of your own post..reblogged by the most awesome people in the fandom) I thought I’d try to remember…
After meeting Mr and Mrs Lauren and The Royal Marsden’s chairman Ian Molson and chief executive Cally Palmer, the Duke met Emeli Sande before making his way into the Waterloo Chamber, where the 220 guests were sipping champagne and eating canapés.
One of the first people he spoke to was Benedict Cumberbatch, who later said he felt ‘guilty’ for spending so much time chatting to him.
He said: ‘He is just a stand-up guy. I completely forgot to ask him how he got over his jet lag from his trip to Australia because I was there at the same time and I saw all the commotion when he went to Sydney Opera House.
'Hopefully tonight will raise awareness of the work of The Royal Marsden - that’s what we’re here for. Cancer isn’t a disease that needs much awareness but it does need continued funding for research.'
