The big news from Palm Beach is the surprise wedding of Princess Maria Pia of Italy and Prince Michel de Bourbon last week. They’re one of the resort’s most popular couples, invited to every breakfast, lunch, tea, dinner, cocktail and snacks party you can name. They even go to some of them. Now they have flown to Europe on their honeymoon. But is honeymoon the mot juste? They have been living together blissfully for the past 27 years.
Family notes from all over: Sir Paul McCartney took his wife, Heather Mills, to Liverpool for the final concert of his “Back in the World” tour, which raked in more than $100 million and took him to 92 cities. Sir Paul played for more than 30,000 adoring fans, ranging from screaming teens to grannies who had a crush on him in 1964 and still do.
When Heather was asked whether she and Sir Paul would be attending the upcoming wedding of her stepdaughter, Stella McCartney, rumored to be taking place this summer, Heather said she and Paul had not been asked, but she wished them well. Whatever, Sir Paul won’t go without her. He wants to present a united family front, he says, and has been upset by all the unkind gossip and the talk of a feud with his children. Whether all this squabbling just signals the McCartney children’s continued distaste for their stepmother, the division of his billion-dollar fortune, the jealousy over the time and love he’ll be spending with his new family now that Heather is pregnant, or all of the above — who knows?
Mick Jagger either has an unusual beauty secret — hardly likely — or he’s taking extreme precautions to protect himself against Europe’s notoriously aggressive paparazzi. Over the weekend at the Kempinski hotel in Munich, where he is preparing a Rolling Stones concert and will soon be joined by L’Wren Scott (the stylist he’s been quietly seeing off and on for several years now), he insisted that black-out draperies be installed to cover each window on his floor of suites and that all the cracks be taped so absolutely no light or zoom lens can creep in. Mick often sleeps while the rest of the world works, turning day into night. But forget those old vampire legends, at least for L’Wren’s sake. She has a very long and pretty neck.
