According to The Telegraph, ‘two leaving events’ took place on April 16 that carried on into the ‘earlier hours’.
The ‘gathering’ apparently involved an ‘excessive amount of booze’ and ‘guests dancing along to music’.

It’s believed that around 30 people attended, however, a No 10 spokesperson has reportedly denied that the Prime Minister was in attendance.
During the period in which this alleged ‘gathering’ took place, the UK was facing the second step of its strict lockdown plan, which meant that no indoor mixing was allowed.
At the time, the government’s guidelines read: “You must not socialise indoors except with your household or support bubble. You can meet outdoors, including in gardens, in groups of six people or two households.”
So that mourners of Prince Philip could still pay their respects, an online book of condolences was set up, to prevent ‘transmission’ of the coronavirus.
The Queen was also forced to mourn for her late husband by herself, and when it came to the funeral, she had to abide by social distancing rules and sit alone.
At the time, many people took to social media and said they were left ‘heartbroken’ at the footage of the 94-year-old.
One Twitter user penned: “Oh my gosh. My heart went when the camera panned to The Queen alone with her head down. I wish I could hold her tight.”
Another added: “The image of The Queen alone during the service will be the defining image of the loss of a loved one during the pandemic.
“She may have been alone but the nation was with her.”
