A woman was fined £12,000 for hosting a lockdown-busting party for her 27th birthday last year, a day after two gatherings were held in Downing Street.
Vianna McKenzie-Bramble, 28, is one of thousands of people who have been taken to court for breaching Covid-curbing rules imposed by the Government.
The bash, with about 40 people and a bouncy castle in Hackney, east London, on April 17 2021, was on the same day as the funeral of the Duke of Edinburgh, which the Queen attended wearing a face mask and socially distanced from her family at Windsor, in line with Covid restrictions.
In a witness statement, police rebuked Ms McKenzie-Bramble for holding the party while the country was in a period of mourning after Philip's death.
It has also emerged that advisers and civil servants gathered for two separate parties in Downing Street after work on the eve of the funeral.
No 10 has apologised to Buckingham Palace for the parties.
