They met at a wedding in 2018 and took the next step in their relationship by setting up home together last year. 

And Helena Bonham Carter, 55, and her boyfriend, Rye Dag Holmboe, 33, looked the picture of domestic bliss as they wrapped up for an al fresco lunch in Primrose Hill, north London, on Wednesday.

The actress engaged in an animated chat with the Norwegian writer and art historian as they warmed up with a coffee before their meal.

The Crown star kept cosy in the chilly winter weather in a black padded jacket and maroon and red scarf, teamed with a jagged-hemmed black skirt.

Helena teamed her low-key ensemble with long brown socks and chunky boots, while going make-up free and wearing a pair of sunglasses perched on her head. 

The actress and her former long-term partner, director Tim Burton, 63, famously lived in inter-connecting houses during their 13-year relationship, with each property decorated to their own his ‘n’ hers tastes and personal styles.

However, the Daily Mail’s Richard Eden reported last year that she had made the step of choosing to share a home with her academic boyfriend, even adding to their domestic bliss by adopting house rabbits.

The couple met at a wedding in 2018, following Helena’s split from Burton in 2014.  

Explaining how they met, she told the Guardian: ‘A totally random thing, which both of us nearly didn’t go to, so it was one of those moments that was so chance and ended up determining so much. A really happy accident, and it’s an amazing thing.’

Addressing the couple’s 22-year age gap, the actress previously said in an interview with The Times: ‘Everybody ages at a different rate. My boyfriend is unbelievably mature. He’s an old soul in a young body, what more could I want? 

‘People are slightly frightened of older women, but he isn’t. Women can be very powerful when they’re older.’

Helena continues to co-parent son Billy, 18, and daughter Nell, 14, with former partner Burton.

In her next acting venture, Helena will play veteran Crossroads star Noele Gordon in a new ITV drama.

The actress will take on the titular role in Nolly, a brand new three-part drama penned by It’s A Sin writer Russell T Davies, and is set to begin filming this tear.

Nolly will explore the all-powerful reign, and fall from grace, of the inimitable Noele Gordon, who was declared the ‘Queen of the Midlands’ thanks to iconic role as Meg Mortimer in Crossroads.
