SEBASTIAN SHAKESPEARE: Model’s connection to Queen

How appropriate that it should be the daughter of one of the Queen’s best friends who walked down the catwalk in front of HM at the Richard Quinn London Fashion Week show.

The masked model, left, who wore a headscarf outfit in tribute to the Queen, is the daughter of royal confidant, Harry Herbert.

Frankie, 22, right, whose uncle is the Earl of Carnarvon, was incognito in her brightly coloured garments, but she couldn’t resist revealing her identity on social media.

‘What a way to finish [London Fashion Week] walking for the unbelievably kind and talented Richard Quinn in front of the Queen,’ she gushed.

Pop stars, luvvies and a Lady at Brits bash  

WHAT: The Warner Music Group Brits after-party sponsored by Ciroc and British GQ.

WHO: Idris Elba, pop star Mollie King and comedian Jack Whitehall.

DRESSED TO IMPRESS: TV star Anna Friel (pictured, below), 41, wore a decorous pink Temperley London dress when she took daughter Gracie, 12, to the awards, before arriving solo at the after-party in a low-cut, red Georges Hobeika gown split to the thigh. ‘I’m filming tomorrow morning so it won’t be a late night,’ she said.

BEST BEHAVED: ITV presenter Phillip Schofield doesn’t party like he used to. ‘The highlight of my night is Damon Albarn being carried out. It’s been a while since I’ve been carried out myself.’

HANGER-ON: Alan Yentob, who quit as BBC creative director in the wake of the 2015 Kids Company scandal, sat on a VIP table at the ceremony and gave Ed Sheeran a chummy pat on the back when he won an award.

UNLIKELY FRIENDS: East London-born pop star Pixie Lott rubbed shoulders with Emma McQuiston (both pictured, below), wife of Viscount Weymouth, who is heir to the Marquess of Bath and the Longleat estate in Wiltshire.

U-TURN: I’m A Celebrity winner Georgia ‘Toff’ Toffolo was back-tracking having hailed Jacob Rees-Mogg as a sex god. ‘I didn’t really mean to call him that, I wasn’t in the right frame of mind because I was monstrously jet-lagged.’

  • ROCK veteran Jim Kerr still struggles to impress his father, Jimmy. The Simple Minds frontman tells me: ‘The other day we played our home town of Glasgow and after the show my dad, who is 82, said: “You should let your backing singer sing more of the songs.” So I said: “How many of them?” And he replied: “All of them.” ’
  • Hollywood star Sharon Stone admits that she is not looking forward to her imminent 60th birthday next month at all, and is not planning any sort of celebration. The Basic Instinct actress says: ‘To be honest, I’d like to have a quiet day because it’s a big number. ‘When I was 50, I was happy to shout out my age. I felt really proud and I still looked pretty good — but now I’m really astounded and 60 seems really old.’ Have a sherry and put your feet up, dear.
