LONDON (AP) _ Mick Jagger and Jerry Hall joined Sir Elton John and a slew of other entertainment and sports stars at a special anniversary dinner party given by Prince Charles at St. James's Palace.

Singers Sting and Geri Halliwell and actors Stephen Fry and Ben Kingsley were among the 80 guests invited on Monday for supporting The Prince's Trust, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary.

Camilla Parker Bowles, the prince's longtime friend, mingled with the guests at a champagne reception before dinner.

The trust, which Prince Charles established to help disadvantaged young people with education, training and starting their own businesses, raises millions of dollars through events such as concerts, with the help of British celebrities.
