Hello, good morning and welcome....

He was the boy who came from nowhere to be one of the most famous interviewers in the world and a friend and confidante of royals everywhere. Today, the memorial service to Sir David Frost united princes and princesses, celebrities and fans as the great inquisitor was given a place among the greats of British culture with a stone to celebrate his life in Westminster Abbey.

The Prince of Wales led mourners at a memorial service in London for Sir David Frost

Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall were among the mourners along with the Countess of Wessex, Princess Beatrice and her mother, Sarah, Duchess of York with other royals including Prince Pavlos of Greece also in attendance.  The service was a celebration of Sir David's life with contributions from many of his friends and family.  Sir David, in life, was a great socialiser who brought together many different people and had a reputation for making them feel comfortable in each other's presence.  In death, that gift he had remains with the congregation at today's service united in their joy at having known the man they came to remember.
