TALK OF THE TOWN: PR guru falls for yet another Goldsmith… Matthew Freud and ‘Shazza’ keep it in the family
If you ever needed proof that British high society is a very small world, look no further than publicist Matthew Freud’s new relationship.
The well-connected PR guru used to date Jemima Khan – and now, I can reveal, he is dating her brother’s ex-wife. Matthew took up with Sheherazade Goldsmith, after meeting through mutual friends.
Astonishingly they didn’t previously know one another despite their families intertwining.
Matthew, 57, and Jemima (once a Goldsmith herself, of course) dated in 2016, while 46-year-old Sheherazade – or Shazza to her friends – was married to Jemima’s brother, politician Zac Goldsmith, for 11 years before they split in 2010, having had three daughters together.

She went on to date Mexican screenwriter Alfonso Cuaron, while Zac married Alice Rothschild.
News that Matthew and Shazza are now together comes two weeks after The Mail on Sunday revealed that film director Jemima is dating her friend Gillian Anderson’s former boyfriend Peter Morgan, writer of Netflix series The Crown.
Yesterday, a source close to Matthew and Shazza said the pair met between lockdowns through a work project linked to Sheherazade’s jewellery business, Loquet London.

The friend said: ‘Over the course of an admittedly gratuitous amount of meetings, they started spending time together and rather gingerly began a relationship which, so far, is properly lovely to watch happen.
‘Not only did the project allow Matthew and Shazza to meet, but the lockets they worked on sold like hot cakes and raised lots of money for a teenage mental health charity.’
I’d love to be a fly on the wall when there’s a gathering of the extended family…
A gift that’s hard to bear
And the winner of my least romantic Valentine’s gift idea of 2021 is… the Houses of Parliament.
Rather than rely on the old favourite of a bunch of flowers, they seem to think we should delight our loved ones with a House of Commons teddy bear or box of chocolates – or even a House of Lords branded bottle of champagne.
All are on offer at the Houses of Parliament website.
Who said our politicians have lost touch with what the public really want?
