Kate's touching moment with Prince Charles on the red carpet

  Kate's touching moment with Prince Charles on the red carpet Kate Middleton has shared a touching moment with father-in-law Prince Charles on the red carpet at the premiere of the new James Bond film No Time To Die. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arrived at the event in London on Tuesday night separately from Prince Charles and Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall. When the royal couples greeted each other, Kate, 39, and Charles, 72, shared a sweet moment, kissing each other on each cheek and embracing, speaking quietly to each other.

Prince Harry and Meghan signed a deal worth an estimated £73 million to make films and programmes for streaming giant Netflix, but could the Duchess of Cambridge turn out to be the real TV star?

For I hear that our future queen held private talks this week with a high-powered television executive.

And insiders claim that Catherine could follow the example of her husband Prince William, whose environmental series with Sir David Attenborough began on BBC1 this week, and make a TV documentary. It would be about early childhood development, a subject close to her heart.

'Catherine is very interested in a programme,' claims the source. 'She thinks it could be a really significant way to explore an important subject. She's been very impressed with William's efforts and knows how much he enjoyed making his Earthshot series.'

The programme could have the feel of the BBC's popular geneaology series Who Do You Think You Are? in which famous figures explore their ancestry. This week, Catherine, 39, revealed that she'd been looking back at four generations of her family as part of her work into early childhood development.

During a trip to University College London, the Duchess met academics from the Children Of The 2020s project, which will track the lives of babies born in 2021 over five years and look at the effect of factors such as economic circumstances.

A television programme would be a big step for Catherine, who used to be very nervous about public speaking but has become increasingly confident.

Put it away! Poppy – the gangster's society squeeze

Playing an aristocrat and model might not sound like too much of a stretch for Poppy Delevingne.

And yesterday it became clear just how much the society model and Lady Victoria 'Vicki' Hodge have in common.

Poppy, 35, shared a picture of herself on the set of new biopic The Chelsea Cowboy, in which she bears a striking resemblance to Vicki, a former flame of Prince Andrew and the aunt of model Jodie Kidd.

The film is about late Fulham gangster John Bindon with whom Vicki had a tumultuous 13-year relationship.

RELATED: Daniel Craig's suave remark to Kate at the 'No Time to Die' premiere Speaking on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Wednesday, Malek said he observed how the royals had "worked so hard" to familiarise themselves with the work of each of the actors before meeting them at the awards ceremony.

Now, former Army reservist Tugendhat has stepped forward with an explanation. 'Michael Gove had clearly been drinking and he just grabbed me, so I thought, 'Go on then,' he tells me at the launch party for Andrew Roberts's book, George III, at the Mandarin Oriental hotel in Knightsbridge.

'I actually hadn't had anything to drink. I was very much the bracing element.'

Who can keep up with 'Jon Bon Govey'?

'Face savouring food. We are delighted to offer a £10 selection of vegetables from Her Majesty's garden.'

The Balmoral gift shop in Aberdeenshire already offers goods including pale ale — a favourite tipple of Prince Philip — and a £60 bottle of gin, which is up for a gong at the Scottish Gin Awards.

Watch out! Stylist Susannah's top tip

Whoever knew that wearing a wristwatch was bad manners?

Style arbiter Susannah Constantine says she's never worn a timepiece on a night out since the American socialite Lynn Wyatt, a friend of Princess Margaret, told her it was the height of rudeness.

'She said to me: 'A woman should never wear a watch past six o'clock,' ' says the host of podcast My Wardrobe Malfunction. 'And I said: 'Why?' She said a woman, if you're wearing a watch, and you go to dinner it looks like you're waiting to leave. And it was so true, so I've never worn a watch in the evening since.'

Funnily enough, Wyatt's husband, Oscar, did time. He was convicted of conspiring to make illegal payments to Saddam Hussein's Iraq.

Spencer 'distills madness of the royals' — writer

First viewings of Spencer, a harrowing new film about Diana, have caused outrage, with Hollywood star Kristen Stewart portraying the Princess as an emotionally unstable woman who self-harms and breaks down in front of a young Prince William.

But writer Steven Knight claims his screenplay is informed by 'first-hand accounts' from people who were intimately acquainted with 'those involved'.

Speaking after a screening at the Curzon Mayfair, Knight says he 'promised not to reveal their names', but adds that there is 'oddness in every family in the world'. The film is about 'distilling the madness of this particular family'.

Let's hope the Queen doesn't take back Knight's CBE.

It's not easy being a farmer — even one who has a hit Amazon television show and an estimated £50 million fortune.

Jeremy Clarkson wails that taxpayer-funded subsidies for his farm are coming to an end after Brexit — and uses this to justify a controversial planning application.

In a missive to West Oxfordshire district council, in which he asks to build a 50-seat cafe and 70-space car park, his team say Diddly Squat is 'facing an acute reduction in the Basic Payment Scheme', a Government subsidy, which is being phased out.

They state that the subsidy 'accounted for over 85 per cent of the business's profit' this year.

Locals have criticised the plans, with one, Dr Nina Morgan, saying the application 'is the latest in a series of what is clearly a step-by-step strategy to exploit planning loopholes in order for the applicant to gain publicity for his media career. It should be refused.'
