It being Friday, and  in a sardonic mood,…I thought I would institute a new ‘Order’The ‘Pretentious Moi? Award.

“A feature in Tatler magazine described how the pair liked to rise early “at their two-bedroom taupe-painted barn outside Chipping Norton” to fly to Venice by private jet for lunch at Harry’s Bar before returning to central London for dinner at Wilton’s restaurant in Jermyn Street.”
