Quite what they discussed over the dinner table remains unknown.

But official records released today do show that David Cameron is quite the host – and Chequers just the venue to attract all manner of guests, from the world of entertainment to royalty.

The Prime Minister dined with supermodel Claudia Schiffer and her husband, director Matthew Vaughn, at his official country residence.

He also served a slap-up lunch to the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh in February, marking the first royal visit to the residence in over four decades.

Other guests to grace Chequers include director Richard Curtis, whose film Love Actually starred Hugh Grant as the Prime Minister, in March, with whom he discussed the filmmaker’s contribution to international development.


Marks and Spencer chief executive Marc Bolland, former head of MI5 Baroness Manningham-Buller, and Dutch prime minister Mark Rutte were also invited to the PM’s abode.

The records also detailed the gifts given to the PM by his multiple guests. These include a pair of shoes by designer Oliver Sweeney, which cost him £279 to keep under the No.10 price limit on gifted items, as well as a watch from Interpol at £150.

Afghan president Hamid Karzai bestowed Cameron with a coat and a trinket box, which was retained by Downing Street for being over the value of the gift limit.
