Jacob Rees-Mogg proves he’s a doting dad

Tory MP Jacob Rees-Mogg is taking baby steps towards becoming Prime Minister

After being called a ‘deadbeat dad’ over his admission that he’s never changed a nappy, Tory MP Jacob Rees-Mogg is taking baby steps towards becoming Prime Minister.

Proving that he can be a more modern dad, the father of six pushed his fourth son, Alfred, one, in his pushchair, as third son Anselm, five, pedalled alongside them on his bicycle. 

True to upper-class form, the Old Etonian Eurosceptic and devout Roman Catholic wore a navy, double-breasted suit with brass buttons and a navy patterned tie.

Next to the family-man snap he posted online, he wrote: ‘Under starter’s orders.’

All the way from the backbenches to No 10…

Wanted: Uber-experience driver for a reclusive royal 

Despite the Duchess of Kent’s withdrawal from royal life, it seems she is not totally reclusive.

The 81-year-old Duke of Kent and his 84-year-old wife are advertising for a driver. The £24,000-a-year job is on a fixed contract.

‘Joining the household of the Duke of Kent, you’ll be part of a small team who support the Duke and Duchess of Kent in their official duties and also, to an extent, their private engagements,’ says the advertisement on the royal website. ‘You will have a very good knowledge of roads and routes in London and the Home Counties.’

There will be no shortage of Uber drivers queuing up for the job.

The Duchess of Kent decided in 2002 not to use the style ‘Her Royal Highness’ any longer and to reduce her royal duties.

Since then, she has been informally known as Katharine Kent, although her formal style — as in the Court Circular — remains HRH The Duchess of Kent.

Sir Roger Moore, who died in May aged 89, never lost his eye for the ladies — even in his final days, recalls his daughter, Deborah. ‘Dad was such a kind man and had a wonderful sense of humour,’ she says. ‘Even when he was in hospital in his last days, he had a twinkle in his eyes and you could see him flirting with the nurses. I’d have to say: “Dad, behave!” ’

Poor Cressie Bonas is low on credit

Cressida Bonas called dating Prince Harry ‘incredibly frustrating’ because it prevented her from making her name as an actress.

The blue-blooded blonde, 28, won praise for her performance in Mrs Orwell, which moved to the Southwark Playhouse this month. But her post-Harry career path is not exactly lucrative. New documents show that her company, Cressida Bonas Ltd, had just £353 in the bank as of March.

The former dancer set up the company in 2015, and listed the nature of its business as ‘performing arts’.

Cressie split from Harry in 2014, and has since been dating dashing property developer Harry Wentworth-Stanley.
