Downing Street has apologised to Buckingham Palace for two staff parties in No 10 on the night before Prince Philip’s funeral.
The gatherings, first reported by The Telegraph newspaper, took place on 16 April 2021 and went on until the early hours.
UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s spokesman said it was "deeply regrettable that this took place at a time of national mourning".
Boris Johnson, who was not at either party, faces questions over alleged Covid rule-breaking at No 10.
