RICHARD EDEN: Buckingham Palace guest Ngozi Fulani said she was left feeling 'violated' after Prince William's godmother 'interrogated' her about where she was from at a reception on Tuesday, despite her making clear she was British.

'Like many people of her age, Lady Susan is rather hard of hearing,' one of her friends tells me. 'It's likely that her deafness contributed to the problems she had that day, and may...

EDEN CONFIDENTIAL: screenwriter Richard Curtis and his girlfriend, the broadcaster Emma Freud, are quitting Notting Hill and are believed to be selling their home for more than £20 million.
