With Prince Harry signed up to appear in a series for Meghan & # 39; s friend Oprah Winfrey on Apple TV +, does the Duchess of Cambridge prepare her own secret screen project?
Because I heard that Kate had private talks with BBC Director General Tony Hall at Broadcasting House in London on Thursday.
& # 39; It would not be appropriate to discuss the content of the meeting & # 39 ;, his spokesperson says.
Kensington Palace points out that the Duchess met Lord Hall in her capacity as patron of the Royal Foundation, so any project would be for charity.

(Very) modern ways
When choosing a baby's name, parents should think carefully about the initials, warns David Gandy.
Britain's best-paid male model has a one-year-old daughter, Matilda, with his lawyer friend Stephanie Mendoros.
& # 39; We wanted to call her Ophelia Matilda Gandy, but then her initials would have been OMG & # 39 ;, Gandy tells me at a Kensington party to celebrate the 50th anniversary of TAG Heuer & # 39; s Monaco watch .
& # 39; So we had to turn it around. Now it's Matilda Ophelia Gandy and I call her Mog. & # 39;
Ellie places Jonah & # 39; s World On Fire …
As an army officer from World War II Harry Chase in the hit drama World On Fire of the BBC, Jonah Hauer-King is torn between two beautiful women.
Outside the screen, he only has one leading lady.
I can reveal that Eton-trained Jonah, 24, is film producer Ellie Fenn, 29.
Jonah is the son of Jeremy King, who is co-owner of London restaurants, including The Wolseley and Colbert.

Olympic gold medalist Samantha Quek has struck a blow for old-fashioned chivalry.
The 31-year-old hockey player and former I & # 39; m A Celebrity star says: & # 39; For the avoidance of doubt – when you open a door for me, when you pull out my chair, when you lend me an umbrella when it rains or your coat when it's cold, when you see me upset and put your arm around me – I don't think you're sexist, I think your mother raised you well. & # 39;
The smart set talks about … the erotica etchings of Lady Liza
Since she was posing nude for society snapper Patrick Lichfield at the age of 20, Lady Liza Campbell knows how to attract attention.
Now 60, she has chosen a tempting title for her latest exhibition of artworks, & # 39; Erotica Requits A Feather & # 39 ;.
Among those who felt attracted to a private view in the Rebecca Hossack Gallery of Fitzrovia was actor Bill Nighy with Liza.

Lady Liza was advised by her father, the late 6th count of Cawdor, to trade her appearance.
& # 39; He said my face was my fortune, which is & # 39; n terrible advice, & # 39; she tells me.
& # 39; First, the appearance does not last. For another it is incredibly sexist.
& # 39; But luckily I have always known that my face was not my fortune and that I had brains. & # 39;

Sir Elton John is still standing after a remarkable career of more than 40 years – and now you can put your guard on him.
JCB billionaire Lord Bamford & # 39; s son George has made 40 timepieces in collaboration with the superstar.
The Bamford watch, priced at £ 450, wants the & # 39; character and history & # 39; by Sir Elton, with colors that go back to the famous blue Dodgers outfit he was wearing when he performed at the Los Angeles baseball team stadium in 1975.
Gym is a tonic for busy Boris
Do you miss those funny pictures of Boris Johnson while jogging in colorful outfits?
I hear that the prime minister instead sneaked out of Downing Street for early morning gym visits.
& # 39; Boris has asked those in charge of his election diary to make sure he makes time to go to the gym & # 39 ;, says a source.
& # 39; He has told them to close at least two gym visits a week.
& # 39; Some of his best ideas come when he trains. & # 39;
The deceased Lady Bathurst (photo) completely cut her stepson out of her will
Stepmother cuts Earl out of will and leaves decorator friends £ 33m of fortune
When the count married an American heiress in ITV's hit drama Downton Abbey, it helped secure the future of his family's stately home.
In the real life of Count Bathurst, an Anglo-American union left its legacy bitterly.
Because I can reveal that Lord Bathurst did not leave a single penny behind his deceased American stepmother, Gloria, Dowager Countess Bathurst.
Instead, she has left almost her entire £ 33 million fortune to a few interior decorators.
& # 39; The countess's will has left the entire estate in deep shock & # 39 ;, a source says. & # 39; Although it was known that Gloria had her differences with her stepson, no one thought she would completely remove him from her estate. & # 39;
Gloria lived in Cirencester Park, which has a 15,000-hectare estate and a polo club where Princess William and Harry have often played, until the death of her husband in 2011.

Newly released inheritance documents reveal that the countess, who died 90 years ago last Christmas, has decided that the vast majority of her £ 33.2 million estate should be shared equally between Grant White, an interior designer based in Fulham, and New Yorker Geoffrey Bradfield.
The estate includes an entire village.
Allen Bathurst (photo), the current count, said he and his stepmother & # 39; disagreed & # 39;
Bradfield organized a party in 1998 for Gloria and her husband in Manhattan, where top Labradors were shown in honor of the count and countess.
The countess had renounced her American citizenship in 2008 in order to escape paying US inheritance taxes.
Lord Bathurst had accused his stepmother of a & # 39; lack of standards & # 39 ;. Allen Bathurst said to me the week after her death: "It was no secret that my stepmother, Gloria, and I did not agree, despite a number of reconciliation attempts, all of which are in our faces."
He inherited the house and the title at the death of his father. However, Gloria brought a Supreme Court against him in 2017 because she failed to use & # 39; use and enjoyment & # 39; of family portraits and antiques searched for an estimated £ 13 million.
He claimed that Gloria changed her aristocratic status after becoming the second wife of his father Henry in 1978.
& # 39; After marrying the family, she used the family name, & # 39; Allen told me. & # 39; It was simply disappointing that she could not adhere to the manners, standards, and loyalty of the family from the past. & # 39;

After the death of her eccentric husband, known as & # 39; Barmy Bathurst & # 39 ;, Gloria refused to extend the lease with Cirencester Park Polo Club before finally admitting.
Her husband had Prince William & some young kid in a beaten up car & # 39; named after his Land Rover was overtaken on a country road by the VW Golf of the Prince.
And in 2013, Gloria closed the parking lot at Cirencester Hospital, located on the property she owned, shaming her stepson president of the Cirencester Hospital League of Friends acute.
Zac wins a place in the (Privy) Council
Even if Zac Goldsmith does not cling to his very marginal seat in Richmond Park – with a majority of only 45 this is Lib Dems' main goal – he will leave Parliament with a trinket.
On Wednesday, the Tory eco-campaign was sworn in by the queen as a member of the Privy Council, which advises the prince.
It means that he & # 39; the right honorable & # 39; for his name, regardless of the election result.
Zac & # 39; s father James Goldsmith got a knighthood but never made a private counselor.
A friend tells me: & # 39; Zac is very honored. & # 39;
Having been married to Philandering Bake Off judge Paul Hollywood for almost 20 years, it seems that his ex-wife Alex has completely got rid of men.
Asked about finding love, she protests: & # 39; Most of the time women are asked, as if we are some kind of property in the found items department. I am not & # 39; owned & # 39 ;, waiting for someone to pick me up. I don't even want to think about it. & # 39;
Alex, 55, who filed for divorce earlier this year, adds: & # 39; If anything should happen, I would agree – but I have no intention of looking forward. & # 39;
