The 40-year-old raised over £6 million for Cancer Research UK after donations from more than 250,000 supporters, including high-profile figures such as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

She said:”Prince William actually came to our family house today!’’

“I am utterly honoured that he joined us for afternoon tea and champagne, where he not only spent a generous amount of time talking to my whole family but also honoured me with my Damehood.

“It’s quite surreal having a royal pop in at home, and yes you can imagine the cleaning antics and preparation went off the scale – but it was all irrelevant because William was so kind and he put us all at ease.

“He is clearly passionate about improving oncology outcomes as the President of the Royal Marsden. It was such a special day for my whole family, making memories to last a life time. He’s welcome back any time!”
