Before officially unveiling a plaque to commemorate the inauguration, Anne met with representatives from the Hinduja Group, who have spearheaded the project.

Meanwhile, Princess Beatrice, 35, and property developer Edoardo, 39, enjoyed a date night at the ceremony, and posed for photographs on the opulent marble staircase.

Beatrice looked elegant in a floral Erdem dress with a black blazer and matching heels, while her husband of three years, donned a blue suit.

The couple celebrated their daughter Sienna's second birthday last week, with Edoardo sharing a rare photograph of the tot.

Guests at The OWO's inauguration were treated to special live performances by Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli and composer Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber.
