MATTY BOVAN York-based, award-winning fashion designer Matty Bovan has been the toast of London’s style scene since he graduated from the legendary Central Saint Martins’ MA course in 2015 with the LVMH Graduate prize under his (extremely colourful) belt. Since then, his bold, idiosyncratic collections have become a noted talking point at Fashion Week. Known for his reinvention of knitwear, Matty writes in this issue of his lifelong love affair with wool. ‘It’s such an experimental craft,’ says Matty. ‘The whole process of knit or crochet is so therapeutic, so satisfying, and more importantly, it’s fun.’ DELILAH KHOMO In her debut section for Tatler, new Travel Editor Delilah Khomo rediscovers Ireland: ‘Epic landscapes, romantic castles, no passport queues – and it’s home to some of the most inspiring cultural happenings in the world.’…

EN POINTE International royals, principal ballerinas and pillars of the art and philanthropy worlds swept across the cobblestones of Covent Garden, many in Ralph & Russo gowns, to mingle beneath the glass-domed splendour of the Royal Opera House for an evening of dance in the name of charity Borne. A flock of foreign princesses, including Basma bint Talal and Maria Theresia von Thurn und Taxis, jet-setted in to watch The Royal Ballet’s Matthew Ball perform a room-silencing excerpt of Swan Lake. Spirits were high, though telling the difference between the two dashing Waley-Cohen brothers in attendance proved much harder after a glass or two. HORSE POWER They were a windswept three days at this year’s Cheltenham Festival, but the howling gales did little to stop Society’s racing aficionados from congregating at the course.…

princesses in peril

PRINCESS UBOLRATANA OF THAILAND Her election bid is foiled The King of Thailand’s elder sister, Princess Ubolratana, 68, made headlines in February when she announced her candidacy for Prime Minister in the country’s general election. She renounced her royal status in 1972 when she married an American but still counts as a senior royal. Within 14 hours of the posting, her brother the King released a damning statement denouncing her actions. The party for which she was candidate has since been dissolved, but the princess remains active on Instagram. PRINCESS LATIFA BINT MOHAMMED AL-MAKTOUM OF DUBAI Runaway princess returned home The 33-year-old daughter of Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum, the ruler of Dubai and Prime Minister of the UAE, spent seven years planning an elaborate escape to the US to claim asylum. She and a friend…

the big easy

Queen Victoria, in her diary of 1893, wrote affectionately of her ‘own little bed which travels always with me.’ The queen’s ‘little bed’ was, in fact, an enormous, bulky, bespoke mahogany frame, which was carted each summer to Pierremont Hall in Broadstairs on the Kentish coast, where it would be installed for a few weeks of rest and relaxation. The privileged have always had their foibles: when the 5th Earl of Lonsdale (and great-great-great uncle of Adwoa Aboah) travelled by train in the early 1900s, a separate first-class carriage was reserved for his dogs. Pink Floyd toured with an ‘Ambience Director’ to ensure their every whim was catered for in distant lands. Keith Richards has a shepherd’s pie made for him before every Stones gig, however far-flung. These comforts can be…

the magnificent seven

Men are chosen as godfathers for three reasons only: if they’re fun, rich or connected. The odd ‘best friend’ might be anointed by naïve firsttime parents – but today, more than ever, godfathering has become a serious business. With the death of the dynastic marriage, godparenting is now the ultimate power-broking union. An advantageous match can propel a family up the social ladder and set the child up for life – and, unlike marriage, there are no laws that restrict the number of godchildren one can have. Take Prince Charles – among his 30 or so charges are Princess Maria-Olympia of Greece, the Maharaja of Jaipur and the Duke of Westminster, thus maintaining the British monarchy’s links with European and Indian royalty, as well as with the man who owns more of…
