The Queen is personally honouring the Aga Khan with a private banquet at Buckingham Palace on Monday to mark his golden jubilee as the leader of the world's 15 million Ismaeli Muslims.

All the senior members of the Royal Family will be there to pay tribute to the 71-year-old, fabulously wealthy, horse race-loving spiritual head, whose followers pay him a tithe of 12.5 per cent of their income.
