Charles crowns party with cameo role
Tickertape showers the stars as they take the curtain call
The Prince of Wales made a surprise cameo appearance on stage at a Royal Gala to celebrate his 50th birthday.
In the skit a stream of lookalikes - including a bogus Madonna and a fake Humphrey Bogart - delivered food to a table where Fry sat with Moore.
Playing the straight man
As the future King of England walked off Moore told Fry: "I know who he is supposed to be but he needs to work on the voice a little."
Halliwell, who recently signed a solo record deal, performed her own version of Happy Birthday in the style of Marilyn Monroe.
As well as performing her first solo song, Halliwell appeared throughout the comedy and entertainment spectacular.
She quit the group in May and has since sold her Spice Girls outfits for charity.
Galaxy of stars
The former Ginger Spice was recently made a United Nations goodwill ambassador to promote education about Aids and contraception.
"You didn't invite me to your birthday party you swine," he joked, wearing a huge false nose.
Other celebrities at the Royal gala included Robbie Williams, Clive James and M People.
The proceeds from the gala tickets went to help the Prince's Trust's work with disadvantaged young people.
The show was filmed by Carlton for a two-hour special to be broadcast on ITV on the prince's birthday on 14 November.
