A glamorous and star-studded reception is one of the best places for celebrities to mix and mingle.
Prince Charles was seen flirting with Zayn Malik's ex-girlfriend, the beautiful Neelam Gill, at a charity event at St. James Palace on Thursday.
Prince Charles spent some part of his evening complimenting Gill, who was dressed in a flawless see-through lace dress at the event.
As reported by The Sun, the two of them, Prince Charles and Neelam Gill, seemed to really enjoy their conversation and company and Charles reportedly told her, "You've got to keep the curves, you see". Twenty two-year-old Gill was spotted gently touching the arm of the 69-year-old.
Back in the year 2015, Neelam was seeing none other than One Direction member Zayn Malik after he split with his fiance, Perrie Edwards. However, the relationship between Malik and Gill was pretty short-lived and the pair broke up after a few months when Malik went on to date Gigi Hadid.
Prince Charles and Gill's conversation and flirting drew a lot of attention to the 22-year-old, a British-Indian model currently based in London. She is a Sikh Indian whose parents and grandparents were born in India.
At the age of just 14-years-old, Neelam was scouted out by her agency Models 1. She went on to land her first big show in the year 2013; it was a Burberry Catwalk exclusive in which she was the first Indian model to be featured in a Burberry campaign.
Neelam's original name was Neelam Johal but she had it changed to Neelam Gill once she started modeling.
Since her Burberry catwalk, Neelam has seen a lot of success in the industry and has modeled for big brands such as Abercrombie & Fitch, Yeezy, Balmain and Adidas among others. She has even appeared in many Vogue editions across the globe. She has also recently been featured in the January edition of Elle UK.
Neelam is no stranger to discrimination and has opened up about her experiences in the past. She told The Sun, "I go to castings now and there might be one other Asian girl – agencies started scouting them after I started getting booked. People don’t understand how hurtful it is to be discriminated against."
She has also been bullied by people on the internet but that does not stop the Indian bombshell from doing her thing and ignoring the haters.
"People say the worst things about me, but I don’t hate them for it. I don’t hate anyone in this world. I just feel sorry because they’re so deeply insecure. If you’re a secure person you never feel the need to write anything negative online."
The charity event held by the Prince's Trust saw the likes of Dame Helen Mirren, pop star Cheryl, and Sir Tom Jones coming together to recognize the efforts of young people who overcame adversity.
Prince Charles was seen greeting his guests and celebrities who had come to mark the one year partnership between the Prince's Trust and LÓreal.
The guests at the event listened to stories of bravery and courage which were shared in the hope to try and build a better and brighter future. One woman and survivor took to sharing her story which completely stunned the audience and she referred to herself in third person.
When the charity event was coming to a close, Prince Charles spoke, "At The Prince's Trust we have become increasingly concerned about young people's confidence and sense of self-worth and my Trust released its ninth youth index report just two weeks ago and it shows that young people's happiness and confidence are at the lowest levels since the study began, which is rather alarming. In the worst cases a fundamental lack of confidence can hold young people back from even starting or progressing in our programmes, so it was vital that we could respond in some way to this."
