Khan Do

‘CAN you believe that Jemima Khan is only 30? No, nor could we. And neither could we believe that she didn’t invite us to celebrate with her.

‘There’s no place like home, there’s no place like home’

However, Hello! got the nod on a guest list that ‘read like a Who’s Who of international fashion and London high society’.

‘Hugh Grant arrived with Princess Rosario of Bulgaria, cover girls Elle Macpherson and Laura Bailey set flashbulbs popping,’ the magazine says.

‘Jools Holland and Steve Coogan kept the conversation flowing wittily and designers Tom Ford, Valentino and Calvin Klein all joined the birthday girl’s family, the famous Goldsmith clan, in wishing her many happy returns.’

In fact, apart from us, just about the only notable absentee was Jemima’s husband, Imran Khan, who couldn’t leave Pakistan because of ‘political commitments’.

What exactly Imran’s political commitments, which seem to prevent him ever being seen with his wife, are we don’t know, but his place was taken by odious high-society columnist Taki, who apparently delivered ‘a high-flown personal tribute, saying that when Shakespeare wrote about Juliet, he really meant Jemima’.

And when he wrote the words ‘the portrait of a blinking idiot’ in Merchant of Venice, was he not thinking about a certain Mr Theodoracopulos?’
