Jane Humphryes QC, defending, said both parties were intoxicated and that alcohol may have had more of an effect on Goldsmith as he was on a "charity diet", with limited food and no alcohol.

Goldsmith said he lashed out in a "spontaneous" reaction to being struck after Mrs Goldsmith was seen by the taxi driver "slapping her husband to the face".

Ms Humphryes suggested Goldsmith may have avoided court and been given a caution if he had not been related to royalty.

She said: "Had it not been for his high profile, it would have been dealt with in that way.

"Had he been almost any other person in that police station out after a charity event, this never would have come, not just to the attention of the Crown Prosecution Service, but in this case, to the courts and to the media."

Goldsmith indicated he remained "devoted" to his wife who he loved "very much" and hoped to patch things up through joint counselling.
