As he settles into the nine-bedroom, 16-bathroom mansion in California which he and Meghan snapped up for £11 million, Prince Harry will be delighted work goes on apace back home at the Invictus Games Foundation.

I can disclose that the Foundation, established by Harry in 2014, two years before he met Meghan, has just appointed a new trustee with a dazzling commercial record.

But Lord Allen of Kensington is cut from a very different cloth from the other Foundation trustees.

They include Ed Lane Fox, Harry’s former Private Secretary — who served with Harry in the Blues and Royals — and Old Etonian City guru Guy Monson.

Rayner apologises after verbal bust-up in Commons on Covid-19 response

  Rayner apologises after verbal bust-up in Commons on Covid-19 response Deputy Speaker Nigel Evans said language used in the debate had made him ‘wince’.Conservative MP Chris Clarkson said the insult was hurled at him after he insinuated that members of the shadow front bench believe the pandemic is a “good crisis” to exploit.

You will get to meet Prince Harry; you will compete for Australia; you will become a lawyer and an Army officer; and you will travel the world. Mum always tells you the story of how you were playing with pieces of cloth as a one year old and that you were getting very frustrated because the cloth wasn't

‘He was recommended to Harry,’ I’m told by an insider.

A former boss of Granada Television and then of ITV, Charles Allen was ennobled in 2013 on the recommendation of Ed Miliband, then Labour leader, who had sought Allen’s advice on improving the party’s commercial fortunes, and he was appointed chairman of the executive board.

But Allen’s links to Labour were established long before that.

Although he has amassed a multi-million pound fortune through his career in media and as an adviser to American investment bank Goldman Sachs, Allen has said he has ‘always been Labour’, after growing up ‘in humble beginnings’ in Scotland and securing his first job in the local steel works when he was 17.

Emilia Clarke looks exhilarated moments after jumping out of a PLANE

  Emilia Clarke looks exhilarated moments after jumping out of a PLANE Emilia Clarke referenced her iconic Game Of Thrones character on Friday, as she celebrated her 34th birthday by jumping out of a plane and completing a skydive. The actress shared snaps from the moments after she returned safely to the ground, where she looked completely exhilarated and flashed a huge smile.

Mr Draper said the group had been fishing for bronze whaler and bull sharks and didn't realise they had snagged a massive tiger shark until it got to the 'As soon as we saw it, instead of cutting the line we had to race to get the hook out and free it so we could swim it back in the water,' Mr Draper explained.

Now 63, he lives in Kensington, the swanky part of West London from which he takes his title, with his partner, architect Michael Fisher who, he has remarked, is much richer than he is.

Allen holds a giddying number of corporate posts — as chairman of an investment bank and director of 15 companies.

Unsurprisingly, his multitudinous commitments prevent him from reflecting on his new role at Invictus.

But, who knows, perhaps it won’t be too long before he’s next in California — and has a chance to pop into ‘The Chateau’, as Meghan and Harry’s home is known, for a chat both about the Games and ‘progressive’ politics?

What a difference a year makes for former Doctor Who star Matt Smith.

Lady A’s eco trainers put boot into plastic

Prince Charles has been fighting single-use plastic for 50 years, and now his fashionable relative, Lady Amelia Windsor, will be hoping her bid to help the cause has legs.

The Duke of Kent’s granddaughter, 25, has designed eco-friendly trainers made using vegan leather, which is derived from fruit waste.

The Edinburgh graduate — who is vegan — collaborated with the shoe brand Yatay.

The woke black and white shoes were launched this week, and though not cheap at £223, 50 per cent of proceeds go to the No More Plastic campaign, of which Lady Amelia is an advocate.

‘I’m so excited about these non-profit trainers,’ she says. Sounds like she’s got Prince Charles’s Christmas present all wrapped up.

Boris Johnson, said to worry about money after his salary shrank to £150,000 a year as PM, will be envious of the riches lavished on his former Attorney General.

Esme didn’t let her art rule her head

Samantha Morton’s daughter, fellow actress Esme Creed-Miles, appeared to abandon her education to pursue her Hollywood dreams when, halfway through her art foundation course, she landed the title role in the U.S. drama series, Hanna.

But Esme, 20, now says the real reason she dropped out of City & Guilds of London Art School was that she didn’t like her wealthy classmates.

‘It was a private foundation,’ says Esme, whose father is Peaky Blinders star Charlie Creed-Miles.

‘The problem with that, which is the same as the school I went to [Bedales], is . . . it’s private education.

It’s quite claustrophobic, affluence influencing affluence. I don’t think I made many friends.’

Strictly Come Dancing presenter Claudia Winkleman, who has been married for 20 years to film producer Kris Thykier — they have three children together — has her eye on a marital successor.

‘Marmite is the love of my life,’ says Claudia, 48. ‘If I ever got married again, it would be to a jar of Marmite.’

Family is all in the jeans

At what age do daughters stop wanting to dress like their mothers?

Princess Diana’s bridesmaid, India Hicks, found her 12-year-old daughter Domino was happy to mirror her look this week — but after sharing a picture online, India, 53, asked in the caption: ‘Matching jeans — utterly ridiculous or sort of OK? What do you think?’

What the entrepreneur failed to mention was that the £65 jeans were made by Italian label Subdued, which describes itself as ‘a brand for playful, effortless and classy teenage girls’.

India, daughter of Lady Pamela Mountbatten and interior designer David Hicks, admits: ‘Made for her, not for me — sure of that.’

Oscar winner Colin Firth highlights the hazards of filming scenes that involve eating.

‘You’ll see actors move their food around a lot on the plate while they talk,’ he says.

‘The trouble is delivering the lines with a mouthful. How long does it take to chew and swallow? And does that affect the scene?

‘And then there’s continuity: “I was chewing in the long shot, so I must be chewing in the close-up.” You get into all these traps.

And before you know it, you’re bloated and you’ve had more shepherd’s pie than you could ever look at again.’
