Chanelle’s en­chant­ing As­cot race date with roy­alty

Sunday Independent (Ireland) - Living - - FRONT PAGE -

CHANELLE Mccoy is tak­ing a break from world dom­i­na­tion, run­ning the med­i­cal busi­ness of her dad Michael’s glob­ally suc­cess­ful hu­man and ve­teri­nary health­care com­pany, the Chanelle Group.

But don’t hold the front page of the busi­ness sec­tion just yet. Chanelle is only tak­ing a break from world dom­i­na­tion for a night. The Ir­ish beauty is pitch­ing up at Soho Farm­house in Ox­ford­shire for the 50th of Fanny Han­non, daugh­ter of Richard Han­non Sr, the for­mer cham­pion race­horse trainer.

So I thought I’d ask Chanelle whether she is go­ing to the birth­day beano with her es­teemed hus­band, re­tired le­gend of the sad­dle, AP Mccoy. “No! It’s ladies only!” she laughed, with­out con­firm­ing whether AP would be with the kids, Archie and Eve, play­ing kiddy games at home in Ox­ford­shire while yummy-scrummy mummy is in Soho Farm­house play­ing more adult games with Fanny and friends.

In the mean­time, Chanelle and AP were two of the very few guests in­vited to join the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Corn­wall for the fourth Prince’s Coun­try­side Fund Race Day at As­cot last Fri­day.

Lunch was held in the royal box, and Camilla was seen study­ing the race­card with AP in the pa­rade dur­ing the day. It is far from lunch at Royal As­cot with Bri­tish roy­alty that Chanelle was reared in Loughrea, Co Gal­way. But then, Chanelle is now, of course, Lady Mccoy.

Ladies only for Chanelle Mccoy and friends at Fanny Han­non’s party
