Duke of Edinburgh hosts Hollywood royalty as Tom Cruise visits Buckingham Palace

Film star Tom Cruise was introduced to the Duke of Edinburgh during a charity dinner at Buckingham Palace.

Cruise, 54, and the Duke were pictured laughing together after the Mission: Impossible actor was presented to the 95-year-old royal on Wednesday evening.

The event marked the 75th anniversary of the Outward Bound Trust - supported by Cruise - which helps young people from all walks of life develop and reach their potential through outdoor pursuits.

It also offers courses for young people to take part in the Duke of Edinburgh's Award.

Philip has been patron of the Trust since 1999 and was previously the charity's Chairman of Trustees.

The dinner was attended by supporters of the charity, including deputy patron Lord Kirkham, the founder and chairman of sofa retailer DFS.
