Socialite, 53, who was bridesmaid at Princess Diana’s wedding admits stealing £680 Max Mara coat

socialite 53 who was bridesmaid at princess dianas wedding admits stealing 680 max mara coat

Prince Charles‘ goddaughter has admitted stealing a £680 designer coat from Harrods.

Socialite India Hicks, who was a bridesmaid at Princess Diana‘s wedding in 1981 and is 678th in line to the throne, stole the expensive Max Mara ladies’ coat from one of its luxury branches at Heathrow Airport in January.

The mother-of-five, who was born in London but moved to the Bahamas with long term partner David Flint Wood in 1996, was taken to court after being charged with theft.

Hicks, 53, pleaded guilty at Uxbridge Magistrates’ Court on Monday and was conditionally discharged for three months. She was also ordered to pay £85 costs and a £22 victim surcharge.

Her address was given in court as Schenectady, a US city in New York state.

A spokesman for Hicks said she had been ‘absent-minded’ and had later returned the coat.

They told The Sun: ‘The court accepted that at the time of taking the coat, India had simply been absent-minded and had not intended to leave without paying for it.

‘She was full of remorse for this mistake, and was discharged by the District Judge.’

Former fashion model Hicks is the daughter of Lady Pamela Mountbatten, a great-great-grandchild to Queen Victoria, and famed interior designer David Nightingale Hicks.

She is the granddaughter of Earl Mountbatten, the uncle to Prince Philip and second cousin once removed of the Queen, whose father George VI took over the throne when Edward abdicated.

Over recent months Hicks has shared a look at her glamorous life in lockdown in the Bahamas, boasting al fresco meals cooked by her children, painting and homeschooling in their airy library room, beach walks and family games by the beach. 

She and her long term partner share a sprawling white-washed villa – which boasts a pool and sea views – with their sons Felix, Amory, Conrad, and daughter Domino, and Wesley, who she adopted when he was 15, after his mother died.

In a 2016 interview with Business Insider, Hicks cited her grandmother – the last Vicereine of India Edwina Mountbatten- as her professional inspiration.

Despite being extremely wealthy, Hicks has been labelled ‘unusual’ as one of the few British heiresses to earn their own income.

In 2015 she launched India Hicks Style, an e-commerce business which sells jewellery, accessories, make-up and homeware, with products ranging between £15 to £400 — but announced over the summer that it would be closing down.

Hicks has described Prince Charles as being a ‘caring, considerate and involved’ godfather. She was 13 and on holiday in the Bahamas when he asked her to be a bridesmaid.

Describing her preparation, she said: ‘But first, I had to practise. It was during these rehearsals that I got to know Diana, whom I first met at a dress fitting.

‘She always seemed more like a head girl than a ­princess-in-waiting, with never a shy moment in private.’

In a recent interview she also said she had kept the flower wreath from the wedding.

Hicks was educated at £40,000-a-year all-girls Gordonstoun School in Scotland.

She previously worked for Ralph Lauren and J Crew and is often featured in society magazine Tatler.

There are now just NINE countries where Britons can travel freely

there are now just nine countries where britons can travel freely

Britain’s ‘safe to travel’ list has been reduced to just nine countries – including Gibraltar, San Marino and Liechtenstein – after more destinations were red-flagged. 

Restrictions were imposed on arrivals from Denmark, Iceland, Slovakia and the Caribbean island of Curacao this weekend.  

It means travellers returning from those destinations to England will face 14 days in quarantine when they get back. 

Transport Secretary Grant Shapps announced this evening that Denmark is one of four countries being added to the Government’s travel quarantine ‘red list’.  

The new rules will come into force at 4am on Saturday morning and mean Brits can travel to just seven countries without restrictions on either border.

NINE NATIONS WHERE BRITONS CAN TRAVEL FREELY

Poland

Germany

Italy

Greece

Turkey

San Marino

<!—->Advertisement

Germany, Poland, Italy, Sweden, Turkey, Greece, Gibraltar, Liechtenstein and San Marino are the only countries Brits can travel to without facing quarantine or tests both ways. 

Mr Shapps also said that no countries will be removed from the ‘red list’ this week. 

Other countries on the UK’s ‘green list’ – including Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, Finland and the Seychelles – are either closed to travellers, require up to 14 days quarantine or only allow travellers with a negative Covid test in the last 72 hours.

The devolved administrations often update their own lists following the UK Government’s announcement of its weekly changes for England.

In the past two months the Government has hacked its list of ‘green’ countries down dramatically – axing Spain, France, Croatia, Slovenia, Hungary, Belgium, Austria, Switzerland, Malta, the Netherlands, Czech Republic and mainland Portugal.  

Mr Shapps reminded travellers that they are legally required to fill out a ‘Passenger Locator Form’ when they return to England. 

Announcing the changes, Mr Shapps tweeted: ‘Data shows we need to remove DENMARK, SLOVAKIA, ICELAND, and CURACAO from the Travel Corridor list.

‘If you arrive in the UK from these destinations after 4am this Saturday, you will need to self-isolate for 14 days.

‘We will not be adding any destinations to the Travel Corridor list this week. 

‘Remember: You MUST complete a Passenger Locator Form by law if you enter the UK. 

‘This protects public health and ensures those who need to are complying with self-isolation rules.’ 

The UK Government currently uses a threshold of 20 cases per 100,000 when it makes decisions on whether to add or remove countries from its quarantine list.  

Downing Street remains under intense pressure to change the UK’s travel quarantine rules amid growing fears for the future of the aviation and travel industries. 

Ministers have faced calls for months to replace the current 14 day self-isolation restrictions for people returning to the UK from high risk countries with a more nuanced system of airport testing. 

Advocates believe testing on arrival could open the door to significantly reducing the two week quarantine period to potentially less than seven days. 

A double testing approach would see travellers tested on arrival and then told to self-isolate for something like five days when they would then be tested for a second time.

Two negative tests would be enough to allow people to end their period in quarantine and return to normal life. 

However, ministers have been reluctant to approve airport testing because of concerns that the approach could fail to identify some people who have the virus. 

This is because of the amount of time it can take for the virus to be detectable after the moment of infection. 

But many MPs believe the current blanket approach to travel quarantine cannot continue for much longer because of the damage it is doing to the aviation sector.

smitten kylie minogue gushes over supportive boyfriend paul solomons

Kylie Minogue has praised her ‘supportive’ boyfriend Paul Solomon for staying by her side when she was sick. 

The Australian pop star, 52, was forced to cancel gigs on her Golden Tour in October 2018 after coming down with an infection, but revealed Paul helped nurse her back to health. 

Joking that the creative was ‘thrown into the deep end’ by dating her, Kylie told The Sun: ‘He had to come to the rescue a few times on tour when I was really unwell. He’d swoop in and hold me in a way that no one else can.’

Kylie continued: ‘He cares about my fans, he cares about my world, but mostly he cares about me. It’s so nice to have that one person who’s not involved in your tour, not in that way, and just wants to know that I’m OK.’

Gushing that things were going ‘really good’ between the pair, she concluded:  We’re really low-key, we’re very real, very supportive. We’re just taking things as they come for now, for always. Who knows what’s to come?’  

The couple have been going from strength to strength since they first laid eyes on each other when they were introduced through mutual friends in February 2018.

Kylie met Paul – who works as GQ magazine’s creative director – following the breakdown of her relationship with Joshua Sasse.

The singer and her actor ex-fiancé Joshua, now 32, announced their split in February 2017 after three years together. 

At the time, unconfirmed reports claimed the singer booted the British actor out of her West London home after he grew too close to Spanish actress Marta Milans, 35.

After their split the songstress, who said she felt ‘broken at the time, took herself to Thailand to ‘heal’ herself.

In a candid interview with The Sunday Times, Kylie revealed that she came to the conclusion it ‘wasn’t the right union’.

Kylie later confirmed the sad news of her split on Instagram, thanking her loyal fans for their messages of concern and support. 

Alongside a picture of a sunrise, Kylie wrote: ‘Thank you now for your love and understanding with the news that Josh and I have decided to go our separate ways.

‘We wish only the best for each other as we venture towards new horizons. #thesunalwaysrises’.

Kylie and her new beau Paul confirmed their romance in April and the singer has been very open about the relationship, once saying she had ‘found her man.’

Kylie recently told The Mirror: ‘Who says you can’t be soppy and romantic later in life? Particularly when you find a good and true love.

‘I feel even more thankful and lucky that I have this in my life now… I’m really being taken care of.’

She also told Stella magazine: ‘When something’s precious, you want to handle it with care.’

She added: ‘We’re learning about each other’s worlds, of course there’s a part of his profession that crosses over to mine. I really just don’t want to say too much. He’s a great, great guy. We’re just doing our thing’.
