The at­trac­tions of a glossy coat

The Sunday Telegraph - Sunday - - Front Page -

ames Mid­dle­ton, Kate and Pippa’s brother, has a new girl­friend. She’s called Al­izée (French) and I was ini­tially alarmed by the way they met. Ac­cord­ing to an ac­count I read last week, it was at a pri­vate mem­bers’ club in South Kens­ing­ton “when she bent down to stroke his pet spaniel”. Ma­tron, my smelling salts! I know dat­ing is dif­fer­ent these days but, as a new sin­gle­ton, this story made me ner­vous. Is that a new eu­phemism? Was this aber­rant French be­hav­iour, creep­ing across the Ch Chan­nel? One’s mind bogg bog­gled. It was a re­lief to con­firm later that the club does al­low ““small, well­be­have be­haved dogs” and that t the story was r re­fer­ring to James’s beloved spaniel, Ella. Phew Phew. We can all sleep easy again.
