With Prince Harry signed up to appear in a series for Meghan's chum Oprah Winfrey at Apple TV+, is the Duchess of Cambridge lining up her own secret screen project?

For I hear that Kate held private talks with BBC director-general Tony Hall at Broadcasting House in London on Thursday.

'It wouldn't be appropriate to discuss the content of the meeting,' his spokesman tells me.

Kensington Palace points out that the Duchess met Lord Hall in her capacity as patron of the Royal Foundation, so any project would be for charity.

(Very) modern manners

When choosing a baby's name, parents should think hard about the initials, warns David Gandy.

Britain's highest-paid male model has a one-year-old daughter, Matilda, with his barrister girlfriend Stephanie Mendoros.

'We wanted to name her Ophelia Matilda Gandy but then her initials would have been OMG,' Gandy tells me at a Kensington party to celebrate the 50th anniversary of TAG Heuer's Monaco watch. 

'So we had to turn it around. Now it's Matilda Ophelia Gandy, and I call her Mog.'

Ellie sets Jonah's World On Fire... 

As World War II Army Officer Harry Chase in the BBC's hit drama World On Fire, Jonah Hauer-King is torn between two beautiful women.

Off screen, he has only one leading lady.

I can reveal that Eton-educated Jonah, 24, is courting film producer Ellie Fenn, 29.

Jonah is the son of Jeremy King, who co-owns London restaurants including The Wolseley and Colbert.

Olympic gold medallist Samantha Quek has struck a blow for old-fashioned chivalry. 

The 31-year-old hockey player and former I'm A Celebrity star, says: 'For the avoidance of doubt — if you open a door for me, if you pull my chair out, if you lend me an umbrella when it's raining or your coat when it's cold, if you see me upset and put your arm around me — I won't think you're being sexist, I'll think your mum raised you right.'

The smart set's talking about... Lady Liza's 'erotica' etchings 

Since she posed nude for the society snapper Patrick Lichfield aged 20, Lady Liza Campbell has known how to draw attention.

Now 60, she has chosen an alluring title for her latest exhibition of artworks, 'Erotica Requires A Feather'. 

Among those attracted to a private view at Fitzrovia's Rebecca Hossack gallery was actor Bill Nighy with Liza.

Lady Liza was advised by her father, the late 6th Earl of Cawdor, to trade on her looks.

'He said my face was my fortune, which is such terrible advice,' she tells me.

'For one thing, looks don't last. For another, it's incredibly sexist.

'But luckily I always knew my face wasn't my fortune and that I had a brain.'

Sir Elton John is still standing after a remarkable career of more than 40 years — and now you can set your watch by him.

JCB billionaire Lord Bamford's son George has created 40 timepieces in collaboration with the super-star.

Priced at £450, the Bamford London watch aims to capture the 'character and history' of Sir Elton, with the colours harking back to the famous blue Dodgers outfit he wore when he performed at the baseball team's stadium in Los Angeles in 1975.
