Guy Ritchie had first met Prince William through his friend William Duckworth Chad, the estate agent who sold him and his former wife, Madonna, Ashcombe House in Somerset and that’s where Prince William and him became friends.
Ritchie, the movie director was among those invited by Prince William in his royal wedding at Westminster Abbey. Other royal guests might have puzzled his presence there but the film director may, however, soon be able to return the favor.
Steve Tisch, Ritchie’s friend and the executive producer of his films ‘Lock’, ‘Stock’, ‘Two Smoking Barrels’ and ‘Snatch’, is to host a party for the couple when they visit California in July.
Tisch, is expected to host the event at his opulent Los Angeles home with other top studio moguls and actors among the guests.
