Van Dyke – who is just one Oscar away from elite EGOT status – accessorised the outfit with a black shoulder bag.

The Missouri native, who began his career as an entertainer on radio and television in the 1940s, wore his silver hair slicked to one side and a bushy beard for the performance.

Meanwhile, his other half wore a burgundy long sleeve top with a green down vest, which she paired with black leggings.

Silver accessorized with a green purse and wore a pair of black sneakers with red socks.

She wore her brunette tresses pulled back in a casual bun, with glasses on her head, and was seen walking with a drink in hand.

The couple first met when Silver was working as a makeup artist at the 2005 SAG Awards.

Van Dyke was 86 when he married 40-year-old Silver in late February 2012.

The actor recently revealed that he was concerned about public perception of marrying a much younger woman.

“I thought there would be an outcry about a gold miner marrying an old man,” Dick admitted to Closer Weekly in March. “But no one has ever taken that stance.”

Van Dyke also credits Silver for his cheerfulness and vitality: “We share an attitude. She can go with the flow. She loves to sing and dance, which we do almost every day. She’s just lovely,” said the actor.

Meanwhile, his wife shares the feeling and raves about her husband: “He is the most perfect person. I’ve never met anyone so happy, so sincere, so amazing. He’s like a happy pill.”

Van Dyke was first married to the late Margie Willett from 1948 to 1984. Their marriage ended after a six-year separation.

The couple have four children, sons Christian and Barry and daughters Stacy and Carrie.

He was then in a relationship with actress Michelle Triola Marvin for more than 30 years until she died of lung cancer in 2009.

The proud father also has five grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.

Van Dyke is best known for starring in the 1964 Disney classic Mary Poppins, in which he had two roles: as Cockney chimney sweep Bert and as old banker Mr. Dawes.

And just three years ago, he put his mind and body to the test by doing his own dance routines for his cameo appearance in the film Mary Poppins Returns (2018), where he jumped onto a desk with no special effects.

He is also known for his memorable roles on The Dick Van Dyke Show (1961-66) and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (1968).

During a career spanning more than seven decades, Van Dyke has received five Emmys, a Tony, a Grammy, a BAFTA, the SAG Lifetime Achievement Award and induction into the Television Hall of Fame, which is in large part due to his role Credited as Rob Petrie on The Dick Van Dyke Show (1961-1966) as well as The New Dick Van Dyke Show (1971-1974) and The Carol Burnett Show (1977).
