editor’s letter

We all know the country is divided. Families don’t speak to each other. Fights break out at Notting Hill dinner parties. Where do I stand on the most divisive debate in Britain today? Well, I think the Duchess of Sussex is fabulous. I love that she is independent and not afraid of doing things her own way. I like her fashion choices, which are chic, sophisticated and grown-up, and the way she is bringing a breath of California cool to the drab and dusty corridors of the old guard. But not everyone agrees. So, for this issue we conducted a nationwide poll on the country’s opinions on Meghan (p. 86) – and the results are fascinating. Founded 310 years ago, Tatler has a long memory – and the trials of Meghan are…

MICHAEL PHILOUZE Paris-born and New York-based Michael Philouze (left) is Men’s Editor at American Vogue and also a contributor to its international editions. This month, he styled theatre producer and couture buyer Jordan Roth (right) as he hit Paris. Jordan, he says, has become a friend: ‘We’ve been working together for two years and it’s been a journey of discoveries,’ says Michael. ‘He is a true artist who understands glamour, fusing the world of theatre and fashion with unprecedented style.’ DAVID LINSEY Earlier this year, David Linsey lost his teenage siblings in the devastating Sri Lanka Easter bombings.

The South of France was even chicer than usual as 150 guests flew in to St Tropez for Gabriela Peacock’s weekend-long 40th birthday celebrations. First up was a dinner at the Peacocks’ house. The theme? Glitz & Glamour – with the birthday girl wowing in a backless gold dress. Astrid Harbord, Sofia Wellesley, and Princess Beatrice regaled guests with a hilarious poem about Gabriela, before everyone decamped to the in-house nightclub for dancing. Saturday saw a seated lunch on Indie Beach, with an afterparty at Giles Mackie’s house that stretched into the night. The weekend of revelry ended poolside, naturellement.…

Social creatures from 65 countries ventured into the Rajasthani desert to celebrate the 35th birthday of Dhruv Raj Singh, son of the Maharaja of Udaipur. The theme of the 48-hour party, set between the desert dunes and Khimsar Fort, was ‘Radical Self-Expression’. Dhruv’s sister Devisha Singh stole the show in silver trousers and an enormous light-up cape, arriving fashionably late to the first night of partying – where a 3am cake fight was started by Alix Mountbatten and Daisy Lines. As morning drew in, guests shuttled back to the Fort, where a row of massage therapists awaited to cure hangovers. Then followed a wild night of dancing and sand duning, ending with partygoers watching the sun rise over the horizon.…

Ladies’ Day at the Qatar Goodwood Festival began with history being made, as 18-year-old Khadijah Mellah became the first jockey to race in a hijab – and win the Magnolia Cup. It was all the Gordon-Lennox family could talk about, as the Duchess of Richmond hosted a lively lunch in their box. Floral dresses were de rigueur, with Jemma Mornington in one of the most stylish. She and her husband swapped betting tips with Lucy and Ben Sangster, but William De La Warr dispensed the ones everyone wanted, as he continued his winning streak from Ascot. The Tatler cup was presented by Lohralee Astor – who was considered best dressed of the day.…
