TALK OF THE TOWN: Cressida Bonas strolls down Portobello Road with new hubby Harry Wentworth-Stanley
Ahh, to be as carefree and loved-up as newlyweds Cressida Bonas and Harry Wentworth-Stanley, above.
Ambling up Portobello Road in West London last week, with her hand in Harry’s pocket, Cressie toyed casually with strands of her long hair.
Surely Prince Harry’s ex must have been thinking: ‘Thank heavens I didn’t marry into that crazy Royal circus.’

Mind you, if she had wed the Prince, there probably wouldn’t be much of a circus to speak of, given that bohemian Cressida, 32, is famed for her easy-going nature. She is more likely to be found delicately practising her ballet or giggling with friends at a bar than causing ructions with a prime-time TV interview.
The good news is that Cressida, is madly in love with her ‘original’ Harry, the son of the Marchioness of Milford Haven whom she has been dating on and off since she was a student at Leeds University. And last year they married in a ceremony that was suitably intimate and low-key.
I wonder if a baby will follow?
Back from the dead… Kate’s Beulah pals
It was a brand that regularly benefitted from ‘The Kate Effect’, so I was surprised when ethical womenswear firm Beulah went into voluntary liquidation last year, sadly leaving 11 members of staff without jobs – including the owners.
Now I can happily report that one of the Duchess of Cambridge’s favourite labels has bounced back and is hiring again. My source says: ‘The closure was not down to the brand becoming unpopular after all. The owners have found a way to breathe new life into the concept. They are searching for a store manager for their old Belgravia boutique in preparation for the end of lockdown.’
Another source close to the label, owned by Royal circle stalwarts Lavinia Brennan and Lady Natasha Rufus Isaacs added: ‘They had a pretty horrific time with a creditor, but they’ve managed to get things going again.’

In between taking swipes at the Palace, the Duchess of Sussex might want to take some time to revisit her page on IMDb, the online movie database. I did and was reminded of how, ten years ago, an unknown Meghan made ends meet by taking a part in a movie called… Horrible Bosses.
A rare big-screen appearance during her 16-year career as an actress, it lasted a matter of seconds. Meghan played a lowly FedEx delivery girl who was treated with contempt.
The comedy is about colleagues who turn against their unpleasant employers…
