EMILY PRESCOTT: Lady Amelia Windsor's car review seems slightly fishy

EMILY PRESCOTT: Top Peer! Lady Amelia Windsor gives a glowing test drive review of the new Polestar 2… despite being unable to drive

Lady Amelia Windsor is full of praise for electric vehicles in her review of a trip to a Cornish eco hotel in a Polestar 2 car for Country & Town House magazine. 

But I can’t help wondering if the 27-year-old  was really the best person for the job – given that she can’t drive.

Describing how she headed off on a road trip to review the hotel, the granddaughter of the Duke of Kent said the Polestar was ‘a marque I’m positive will become more common on our roads as we accelerate the transition to EVs’. 

She reports that the car was ‘exquisitely smooth to drive along the winding Cornish roads’ and praises its leg room before conceding: ‘My friend took the wheel (I’m still an aspiring driver).’ 

Well, at least she’s honest.

The Duchess of Rutland knows Americans love the British aristocracy… and is ready to exploit it. 

She’s throwing a ball in Palm Beach, Florida, next year to raise funds for her family pile, Belvoir Castle – saying she’s found Americans are ‘happy to reach into their wallets’ to preserve our heritage. 

Canny!

Comic and former model Camilla Cleese is tired of being referred to as ‘the daughter of John Cleese’. 

After working for years in stand-up in the US, Camilla, 39, said: ‘Yes I am proud of him, I love him but… it just feels really unfair at this point.’ 

She told the Reza Rifts podcast: ‘I work too hard to just have that be my title.’

It’s notable, though, that she said this before the announcement that she’ll be starring alongside her father, star of Fawlty Towers, in a revival of the madcap sitcom – a gig we’re sure she landed with no help at all from papa!

Dog owners will do anything for their pooches, but can they be tempted to have their paws read? I only ask because palmistry sessions, massage and sound-bathing for hounds will be on offer at the Duke of Richmond’s ‘Goodwoof ’ event later this month when he throws open his Goodwood estate in West Sussex for ‘influencer dogs’. Barking!
