The well-heeled partygoers who attended swanky event at Annabel’s

Confectionery heiress Jemima Cadbury and Lady Tatiana Mountbatten lead the well-heeled partygoers attending a swanky event at Annabel’s last night.

Jemima, the great-great-great-granddaughter of confectioner John Cadbury,  commanded attention in a sleeveless black ensemble with a plunging neckline, teamed with eye-catching diamond earrings when at the private member’s club in Mayfair.

Looking as equally stunning, Lady Tatiana, 31, the daughter of the Marquess of Milford Haven, a first cousin of the Queen, appeared radiant in a shimmering sliver frock, cinched at the waist with a black belt and paired with a matching blazer.

Joining the dazzling duo at the glitzy inaugural Under 35s Committee Dinner and After Party in The Jungle Bar was Jacobi Anstruther-Gough-Calthorpe, who went to prep school with Prince William and spent a lot of his twenties going to nightclubs with Prince Harry.

TikTok star Francis Bourgeois, who won a legion of fans thanks to his trainspotting videos and was unveiled as the face of the new Gucci and North Face campaign earlier this month, was also in attendance.

Other guests included boutique owner Annie Doble – who counts Kate Moss as a client, US property developer Taylor McWilliams amd Natalie Salmon, the digital editor of Vogue Scandinavia. 

Appearing picture perfect, Jemima’s jumpsuit accentuated her svelte figure, while the heiress opted to keep her locks down and opt for a smattering of glamorous makeup. 

In her spare time, Jemima, who works for the highly selective Annabel’s, liked to write about the chicest events around the capital on her blog Bee’s Bazaar. 

The socialite and chocolate dynasty scion was dubbed one of the new ‘movers and shakers’ among London socialites by Tatler Magazine. 

In March 2021, Jemima announced her engagement to boyfriend David Tollemache, the nephew of Lord Tollemache.

Timothy Tollemache, who is 81, has had a Knight Commander of the Royal Victorian Order since 2015, and the Tollemache family are also patrons and presidents of several organisations.

Meanwhile, Equestrian Lady Tatiana added a touch of glitz to her ensemble last night by opting for a dazzling set of earrings and a dainty necklace. 

She is the eldest child of George Mountbatten – whose brother Lord Ivar Mountbatten is the first openly gay member of the Royal Family – and his first wife Sarah Georgina Walker. He is now married to Clare.

Her younger brother Henry, 30, is Earl of Medina.

Tatiana, who trained under Olympian Charlotte Dujardin, was educated at the elite £12,000-a year Millfield private school in Street, Somerset.

Horse-mad Lady Tatiana once wanted to be a ski instructor, but now works training dressage horses.

Her polo-playing father George swelled his fortune by founding and selling price-comparison company uSwitch, and is thought to live in Switzerland.

After stints in Denmark and Germany, ‘Tatty’ has settled in Windsor, where she runs a very smart horse yard. Tatiana is also training to be a psychotherapist.

Earlier this month, she announced her engagement to startup founder boyfriend Alexander ‘Alick’ Dru.

Also in attendance at yesterday’s event was Jacobi, who came close to being related to the royals by marriage. One of his sisters, actress Cressida Bonas (they share the same mother, former 60s IT Girl Lady Mary-Gaye Curzon), is well-known for having dated Harry for two years. 

She tied the knot in July 2020 with her old university sweetheart Harry Wentworth-Stanley, the son of the Marchioness of Milford Haven, in a small ceremony at Cowdray Park in West Sussex. 

Jacobi posted an image on Instagram of them riding into the sunset on horseback. Another of his sisters, Isabella, is married to Sam Branson, Richard’s son.

The former city worker has previously spoken openly about how tough being in the public eye is for his beloved sister, and how she coped with the attention while dating Prince Harry.

He told Evening Standard: ‘She’s not a tough cookie at all. She’s a very sensitive, sweet girl, all my family are — they’re incredible.

‘It’s challenging, you can’t deny it. It’s not something that is easy for anyone dating a royal or marrying into the family or anyone in the royal family themselves. I think on some level it is different to any other type of fame.’

Jacobi, who is the only male among Cresida’s siblings, previously worked as a DJ and club organiser following a career as a financier, before moving into the world of sound technology – having founded an ‘audio advance’ called IRIS in 2018.

Meanwhile fellow Annabel’s guest Francis Bourgeois, a Mechanical Engineering student at Nottingham University, went viral last year with his trainspotting clips, with 11.3million likes and his most popular effort notching up 6.8million views.
