Rod Stewart – who usually charges up to £1 million for private shows – has reportedly waived his fee for Prince Charles and will be performing at the Prince’s 60th birthday party in November for free.


Stewart – who will be 64 in January 2009 – is a close friend of the Prince and his wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.


It has been revealed that the rock legend will not charge a fee for entertaining family and friends of the heir to the throne at his Highgrove estate in Gloucestershire on November 15, 2008 – the day after the Prince’s 60th birthday. The birthday party is being hosted by the Duchess of Cornwall.


A spokesman for Clarence House, the Prince’s official royal residence, said: “The main musical entertainment at the party will be provided by Rod Stewart, who is an ambassador for the Prince’s Trust. He is giving his performance as a birthday present to the Prince.”


The heir to the throne was born at Buckingham Palace at 9.14pm on November 14, 1948, and was christened Charles Philip Arthur George a month later.


Rod Stewart – reportedly hailed as music’s “best white soul singer” by soul legend James Brown – previously played at the Concert for Diana in July 2007 to commemorate the life of the late princess. In the same year, Prince Charles presented Stewart with his CBE.
