EDEN CONFIDENTIAL: Harry Enfield leaves his wife of 23 years who once hailed his ‘huge sex appeal’

Harry Enfield’s wife, Lucy, once hailed his ‘huge sex appeal’ but she’s now found that life with the celebrated comedian is no laughing matter.

I hear the couple’s marriage has hit the rocks after 23 years and Enfield, 59, has moved out of their elegant family home in Notting Hill, West London.

‘It’s very sad, but Harry is living elsewhere,’ a friend of the couple tells me. ‘He’s being comforted by a female friend. Lucy’s heartbroken.’

Talented Enfield, who created and performed such grotesques as Kevin the Teenager, Loadsamoney and The Slobs, has three children with Lucy, 57. She’s a children’s clothes designer, but the brand she co-founded, Wild & Gorgeous, filed for administration last year.

The firm received great free publicity when her dresses were worn by David Cameron’s daughters in their final appearance in Downing Street. The former prime minister and his wife, Samantha, are pals with Enfield and Lucy.

Before the comic met privately educated Lucy at a dinner party, he had a three-year relationship with TV and film producer Alison Allen, former wife of actor and comedian Keith Allen.

During that time he and Alison shared a flat in Primrose Hill, North London, and he played a part in bringing up the three Allen children, Sarah, Game Of Thrones star Alfie, and Lily, the now-famous pop singer. He called them his ‘common-law stepchildren’.

Enfield, who plays Prince Charles in hilarious Channel 4 sitcom The Windsors, was at the height of his fame when he met Lucy, but she was oblivious.

‘I didn’t have much of a take on who he was,’ she later said. 

‘When we were introduced it was, “Oh, this is Harry; he’s a comedian.” ’

They met for decorous walks on Hampstead Heath. ‘I fancied him from the outset and gradually I realised what a fantastically good and kind man he was,’ she said.

‘Harry and I have a lovely relationship. He is very generous with his words; very demonstrably loving. He tells me I’m beautiful — I never believe him, of course — and he’s very quick to say he loves me.’

A spokesman for Enfield declines to comment.

The smart set’s talking about…

Dire Straits star’s daughter Issy

Mark Knopfler sang Money For Nothing with Dire Straits but his daughter Issy is determined to earn a living through hard work.

The 22-year-old is making waves as an actress after landing a role in Everything I Ever Wanted To Tell My Daughter About Men. Starring Jason Isaacs and Alan Cumming, it’s an anthology of 23 short films which traces a woman’s relationship history backwards.

Issy — who grew up in London with Knopfler, pictured inset, and her novelist mother Kitty Aldridge — has found happiness off screen with the actor Charlie Field, 26, who played Prince Harry in the TV drama Harry And Meghan: Becoming Royal. He makes her ‘the happiest girl alive’, she says.

Having inherited her father’s love of rock ’n’ roll, Issy publicly pleaded with him to perform at Glastonbury where she’s a regular festival-goer. 

‘Come on, Dad, make your daughter happy,’ she said.

How about a post-crisis Dire Straits reunion at Glastonbury 2021?

What odour comes to mind when you think of former cricket star Shane Warne? The manly scent of leather and linseed oil perhaps, or something less pleasant?

The Aussie lothario has taken a leaf out of the book of his ex-fiancee, Elizabeth Hurley, and launched his own eau de toilette, SW23. 

It claims to open with ‘notes of fresh bergamot, mandarin leaf, cardamom and crisp apple’.

The 50-year-old credits Hurley, the face of Estee Lauder, with inspiring his appreciation for self-care. 

‘I know there’s still a bit of a stigma about it, and that it’s seen as not a masculine thing to do to take care of yourself,’ he says. ‘But it’s just as important for men to look after themselves.’

Lady Isabella’s on top of the world with new love

Dukes’ daughters may have once met prospective husbands at grand balls in stately homes, but Lady Isabella Somerset has found love in the Himalayas.

The 28-year-old daughter of colourful rock musician Harry ‘Bunter’ Worcester, now the Duke of Beaufort, is going out with Santiago Santos, 27, a Mexican lawyer she met in Nepal while leading her Wellness Adventures treks.

‘Santi is lovely,’ Bella tells me. ‘Trekking adventures are deeply connecting experiences; endorphins flow and you feel happy and peaceful so connection happens very naturally.’

Bella — whose mother is the duke’s first wife, actress-turned eco-campaigner Tracy Worcester — adds: ‘Two of my clients, who met on my trek in 2018, are now engaged.’

Must be summit in the air…

Prince Andrew has suffered a new humiliation, and this one will be particularly painful. 

The Queen’s second son, under pressure to co-operate with the FBI inquiry into sex trafficking, has been relegated on the official royal website to a lowly position below his little brother, Prince Edward, his sister-in-law the Countess of Wessex and his sister Princess Anne.

On the ‘Members of the Royal Family’ page, Andrew is now dumped next to the Duke of Gloucester, a cousin of the Queen, and is four places behind Meghan Markle.

‘It will be a major matter to Andrew, who, like most of the royals, takes these points of precedence extremely seriously,’ a source tells me. 

‘Remember, Andrew spent 22 years of his life as second in line to the throne.’ 

The source adds: ‘No change such as this would be made without the approval of the Queen.’ 

Cressie’s pop at Harry’s £11m palace?

While Prince Harry and Meghan have spent £11 million on a mansion with nine bedrooms and 16 bathrooms (right), his ex, Cressida Bonas, is keen to make the point that she’s happy with a simpler life.

The 31-year-old, who married her own Harry, Wentworth-Stanley, last month, shared this snap (left) of herself sitting on the steps of a rustic bungalow. ‘Happiness in the woods,’ she wrote in the caption online.

Cressie is thought to be on honeymoon in the Mediterranean but her husband will have no trouble finding her a more impressive pad back home: he works as an upmarket estate agent.

…as Meghan gets green light for film ambitions

Lights! Camera! Action! The Duchess of Sussex has won approval for her plans to return to the screen.

The American former actress has been given the go-ahead by the Intellectual Property Office in London to trademark the name of her and Prince Harry’s planned foundation, Archewell, for ‘television shows’ and ‘motion picture films’.

The couple had listed a vast range of potential ventures in their application, from ‘digital entertainment content’ to physical fitness websites.

The couple had set up a similar ‘not-for-profit’ organisation, Sussex Royal, but were banned from using the word ‘royal’ when they quit official duties in January. They declared that they planned to become ‘financially independent’ of the Royal Family.

(Very) modern manners

Prince Charles has found a stylish way to comply with social-distancing rules — by bringing back butlers.

He is welcoming bed-and-breakfast guests to his Scottish stately home, Dumfries House, again, but with a significant change. 

‘As part of a renewed offering that adheres to government guidelines, guests will be offered a full butler service that includes room service,’ says a spokesman for the property, which Charles saved for the nation in 2007. 

The change will prevent guests mingling in the dining and lounge areas.

No word on whether the butlers will squeeze toothpaste onto your toothbrush…

Fresh volley from battling Beckers

Boris Becker normally never misses a return shot, but now his friends have hit back at his estranged wife, Lilly, over her comments about his new girlfriend.

Lilly publicly slammed Lilian de Carvalho Monteiro, for daring to put suncream on their son, Amadeus, ten, after they were pictured on holiday together in Ibiza. 

‘Step away from my son!’ she demanded.

Now, a close friend of Becker tells me: ‘It’s a bit rich for Lilly to criticise his girlfriend when she’s had her own boyfriend, Pierre Uebelhack, for two-and-a-half years. 

Boris has never complained about Pierre spending time with his children, and certainly not in public.’ 

Lilly is said to have met television executive Pierre while appearing in one of the shows he produced, Global Gladiators.

Sounds like there’s no chance of mixed doubles then.
