Prince Harry posed with one of the world's richest men at a recent glitzy award ceremony.

Lauren Sanchez, Jeff Bezos's fiancée, gave royal fans an insight into the Living Legends of Aviation gala, which saw the Duke of Sussex win an award on Friday.


The 54-year-old took to social media on Saturday morning and shared a picture taken backstage of herself with Prince Harry, John Travolta, and her fiancée, one of the world's richest men, Jeff Bezos.

She captioned the post: "Honored to have been in the presence of aviation legends who have shaped the history and future of flight.

"Thank you @livinglegendsofaviation for this incredible recognition.

"Grateful to my loving family for their unwavering support."

Sanchez also posted a picture of her family on the red carpet, one of her and Travolta holding the award, and a third showing her on the stage receiving the Elling Halvorson Vertical Flight Hall of Fame Award.

Bezos, the founder of Amazon, was inducted into the Living Legends of Aviation in 2023.

Prince Harry, 39, who wore a black velvet tuxedo, made a solo appearance at the event without his wife Meghan Markle.

The Duchess of Sussex was later reported to have stayed home in Santa Barbara as one of their two children was "unwell".

The British royal was honoured for his work as a British Army veteran.

Choosing not to pose on the red carpet, the duke went privately into the Beverly Hilton Hotel, in Beverly Hills, through the back doors.

During his acceptance speech, Prince Harry poked fun at Travolta for “dining out” on the story of dancing with his mother, Princess Diana.

He joked: “I was one year old when you danced with my mum. As you’ve told everybody here and continue to dine out on that probably every single night.”

The Grease actor danced with the late Princess of Wales at a White House party in 1985.

Harry added: “But look at us now. It’s great. So if we’re not going to dance together, we’ll fly together.”
