Tatler reveals its ‘200 hottest dates in Britain’

Tatler has this month revealed a list of the 200 most eligible people in Britain and Ireland, including boxer Anthony Joshua, footballer Jack Grealish and Normal People star Paul Mescal. 

But alongside the household names there are some singletons most readers probably won’t recognise – from wealthy heiresses to fashionistas.

That Tatler ‘Little Black Book of the Hottest Dates in Britain’ gives a rundown of the unmarried up-and-coming movers and shakers everyone needs to know, including the Queen’s distant cousin Alexander Ogilvy, 26, Princess Alexandra’s grandson, who keeps a low profile despite his royal ties. 

Another on the list is Colin Firth’s lookalike son Luca, a budding musician who can be spotted meandering through the Italian countryside in linen. 

Elsewhere there are names like Freya Jones, the daughter of Soho House founder Nick and Desert Island Discs presenter Kirsty Young, and Azzi Agnelli, of the ever powerful and influential Fiat dynasty. 

Here, FEMAIL reveals some of the lesser known – but no less desirable – singletons who make the cut…  

Azzi Agnelli

The 24-year-old Italian, who moved to London in 1998, enjoys festivals and holidaying in Ibiza and Mexico with friends Bella Broekman-Tilbury and Lola Bute. 

In 2014, the Fiat family was listed by Town & Country as one of the ‘world’s most powerful families’ with the household coming in at number 30.

Giovanni Agnelli ventured into the automobile business in 1899, and in 2013 CNN Money reported that the family fortune stood at $142billion.

Fashion is in the blood for model Emilia – she’s a signed-up member of sartorial society thanks to her father, Savile Row stalwart Ozwald Boateng. 

The 21-year old studied history of art at Goldsmiths, winds down in Ibiza and can be found with her model posse each year at the Notting Hill Carnival. 

Posting to her stunning Instagram account, she captures vacation snaps with her film camera, jet-setting from New York to Marrakesh. 

She often appeared at fashion events with her father, who would bring her into the limelight at the end of his shows.

The Mavroleon family is a Greek family of shipping magnates with strong UK connections, with their wealth said to amount to around £2 billion at its height.

Glamorous Carolina, 19, is the latest star of the family, and spends her summers in Greece on her family’s yacht. Her winters are spent in Saint Moritz. She is a good friend of Damian Hurley’s, the 19-year-old model son of Elizabeth Hurley.

Carolina’s relative Alexia, 24, was also previously named in Tatler for being a New York socialite to watch. She was born and raised in London and studied at Rhode Island School of Design.

The artist creates installations inspired by her personal and social experiences living in in Manhattan, NY.

Online, she describes her artwork as ‘investigating personal and social narratives by bringing them into new spaces predominantly through installation and performance.’

She wrote: ‘She experiments with the notions and ideas of control and her own relationships with it.’

Jude Fry

Chocolate heir Cosmo Fry and stylist Lulu Anderson’s son Jude, 20, is a model and student at Newcastle University.

He set up a business with a fellow alumnus of £39,930-per-year Marlborough College called Pass It On, which sells second-hand private school uniforms.

‘We realised students leaving school were desperate to make money, and there was a huge market,’ Jude previously told The Scottish Daily Mail.

‘Private school parents not only pay these incredibly expensive fees, but are also hit with a huge bill for uniforms.’ 

He spent the summer before university in the South of France with his older brother Orson, and you can most likely spot him at The Strokes gigs, said Tatler.

‘We aim to have 30 schools with a couple of thousand items to be doing very well, but we are happy at the moment,’ he added.

Alexander Ogilvy

From their flowing auburn locks and to their high standing in the upper echelons of society, Daphne Bridgerton and heiress Blanche Howard have plenty in common.

The 26-year-old daughter of the Hon Nicholas Howard and his wife Victoria, Blanche grew up at Yorkshire’s Castle Howard where Bridgerton was filmed.

But unlike Daphne, the socialite is straying from the usual aristo path by getting a proper job as an architect – a career surely inspired by growing up beneath the famous baroque turrets.

Meanwhile her Instagram page is full of enviable sunny getaways and stylish outfit snaps which she shares with her 1,000 or so followers.

Blanche lives in the sprawling grounds of Castle Howard, 15 miles north of York, which doubled up as The Duke of Hastings’ country estate, Clyveden Castle in the saucy series. 

Dan Hall

He also has muses like Mia Regan and his cousins, the Campbell sisters (Lady Jean, Lady Eleanor and Lady Beatrice).

Tatler says you’ll find the stylish photographer capturing his cousins on the Cawdor Estate in the Highlands, or enjoying a dip in cold Scottish waters.

He previously explained to Vice about his passion of taking photos, saying: ‘My father (a cinematographer) enjoyed taking photographs and has several cameras, so I learnt the basics from him and eventually got into it myself.’

The photographer staged a successful crowdfunded exhibition on his work ‘Eternal Youth’ at the age of just 18 in 2020.

He told Dixie Magazine: ‘I am inspired by going to exhibitions, looking through art and photography books, my friends, subjects and surroundings. 

‘I have always been fascinated with the idea of image and film. I love capturing and creating an image. For me shooting on film instead of digital is a more rewarding and tactile experience. You have to be patient and focus more.’

Freya Jones

Jones, who borrowed £1 million from the late property mogul Paul Raymond to launch Soho House, 13 years ago sold 80 per cent of his empire to restaurants tycoon Richard Caring. 

Freya studied at Marlborough College and joined The Foundation Year at the Royal Drawing School, graduating in 2020. 

She is reportedly going on to The Certificate Programme at The New York Studio School, to continue honing her craft. 

The budding artist has also dabbled in modelling, walking for Roland Mouret at London Fashion Week in 2019, and posing for the designer’s website, saying in a brief bio that ‘the best thing about being a woman is the connection you share with other women, and that the best thing in the world is laughing.’

Luca Firth – son of Colin Firth and his ex-wife Livia – is an aspiring musician, playing guitar in a band.

The 20-year-old has even played at the Isle of Wight Festival. Although when he’s not concentrating on his music, he can apparently be spotted roaming around Sicily, ‘wearing white linen and Birkenstocks’.

Colin and Livia, who ended their marriage in 2019 after spending 22 years together, co-parent Luca and his brother, Matteo.

Luca was born in Italy and reportedly feels a strong connection to the country, spending some of his summers there.

He previously noted that he fills his days with university work, binging The Sopranos and cooking elaborate meals.

He told Reel Culture magazine in June 2021: ‘I would want to do a tour as soon as possible. To be fair… I just want to release [my new] music and see what happens.

‘I feel like it just needs to get out there now and I want to get out and perform it. Yeah, there’s no big dreams yet, apart from headlining Glastonbury.’

Lady Eliza Dundas

Lady Eliza Dundas, 23, is the eldest of four daughters born to Robin Dundas, who is the Earl of Ronaldshay, and eldest son of the 4th Marquess of Zetland.

She studyed Psychology at New York University and is involved in the Daughters’ Rights campaign to overhaul the rules based on male primogeniture that mean only male members of a noble family will inherit titles and the family seat. 

Under current rules, Lady Eliza’s uncle Lord James Edward Dundas would benefit upon the death of her father, rather than her. 

‘We are such a close family everyone is supportive of the campaign,’ she explained. ‘My grandfather, 80, thinks it’s fantastic.

‘My father has yet to inherit the title, so the prospect of seeking election to the House of Lords is a long way off, For me, this is about equal rights for women, not holding on to our family estate. 

‘I would use the peerage to highlight issues surrounding mental health of students and help end the stigma surrounding its discussion.’

The family live on the Aske family estate in North Yorkshire, which her father runs. Robin ended the family’s reliance on long-serving land agents and took on the role himself. 

He overhauled the residential lettings business, modernising the estate cottages and reforming the traditional tenancy agreements.

She previously stated: ‘We grew up in a Grade I-listed Georgian hall, but these days the estate is a commercial operation, with office blocks for rent. Our parents brought us up to get a good education and work hard, so we are pretty down to earth.’ 

Tyrian Khan-White

Tyrian White, 29, is the daughter of Imran Khan, the Prime Minister of Pakistan, and heiress Sita White. 

She was born to Imran in June 1992, three years before his marriage to Jemima Goldsmith. But at the outset, he publicly denied that Tyrian was his. 

Her early years were tumultuous, marked by Sita’s determination to have Imran recognise Tyrian as his biological daughter. In 2004, seven years after a judge declared Imran to be Tyrian’s father, Sita suddenly died, aged just 43. 

Thankfully, Jemima stepped in as a mother figure in Tyrian’s life, according to The Daily Mail. 

Even though Jemima divorced Imran in 2004, she has been a constant in Tyrian’s life following Sita’s early death and regards her as her daughter. Publicly, Jemima refers to Tyrian as her ‘stepdaughter’, but that is thought to be simply out of respect for Sita.

‘Tyrian is like a daughter to Jemima,’ said a family friend previously. ‘They are extremely close. She also has a good relationship with her brothers Sulaiman and Kasim, and Jemima’s brother Ben.’

Tyrian divides her time between New York and the UK, and when she is over here, she lives with Jemima.

Although not as well known as her big sister, Vogue model Adwoa Aboah, Kesewa has her own seriously cool credentials.

‘London-born, Brooklyn-based Kesewa, 27, is instantly admired by all who meet her,’ wrote Tatler previously.

‘Catch the artist and model this side of the pond at Taqueria in Notting Hill, or searching for vintage pieces on Portobello Road. Fashion finds aside, she never goes anywhere without a hoodie.’

Adwoa and Kesewa are the daughters of Charles Aboah, a Ghanaian location scout in the fashion industry, and Camilla Lowther, a British fashion businesswoman and talent manager.

Kesewa attended private school Millfield, in Somerset, and later studied for a degree at the School of Visual Arts in New York City.

Both Adwoa and Kesewa are family friends of Lady Lola Bute and spent part of lockdown on the Scottish island.
