TALK OF THE TOWN: Will Prince Harry be called for godfather duties? Duke’s oldest friend Tom Inskip is expecting his first child with wife Lara
Will Prince Harry be getting the call up for godfather duties next year? I can reveal his oldest friend – and Las Vegas party pal – Tom Inskip is expecting his first child with wife Lara.
Tom will no doubt have informed Harry of the happy news, though relations between the two old chums have cooled since Harry’s marriage to Meghan, when Tom was left ‘NFI’ from the evening reception, much to his utter astonishment.
Let’s hope a little friend for Archie might bring the boys back together again.

Coutts, the oh-so-posh bank that counts the Queen among its customers, has been doing things in the same stuffy way for the past 300 years.
But now I can reveal the utterly unthinkable is about to happen… the bank is embracing the vulgar social media age! Its CEO Peter Flavel has scoured YouTube to find his favourite ten ‘influencers’, all of whom have been invited to Coutts HQ to give the bank a digital content makeover.
These are decidedly NOT the kind of people one usually spies in its hallowed halls. What the bank’s blue-blooded customers will make of it all, I really can’t imagine!
CRUSH OF THE WEEK… A new Royal beauty emerges
This week’s crush is lovely Lady Marina Windsor, who at last seems to be taking the first steps out of the shadow of little sister Amelia – once dubbed the ‘most beautiful Royal’.

Strangely, Lady Marina isn’t technically a Royal, even though they have the same parents and are grandchildren of the Duke of Kent – because she converted to become a Roman Catholic.

Revealed: Lurid truth about painter Pierce…
Seems these days that the only thing Pierce Brosnan is shaking, not stirring, is his paint pot.
The former 007 star has put his James Bond days well behind him – and is now happiest when he’s painting, complete with Old Master-style beard.
Pierce created this fabulously lurid mermaid mural last week and it will take pride of place in his 18-year-old son Paris’s bedroom.
The Mamma Mia actor, 66, who trained at London art school Central Saint Martins before acting, said of his psychedelic creation: ‘Work in progress.’
I’d say so!
