IS THE ROYAL scooper Tom Bradby trying to salvage his friendship with the future king, Prince William? Bradby hosted an interview with Prince Harry on ITV last night, the UK’s only chat for the Prince’s new book. But instead of bragging about it online, Bradby kept the schtum.

Bradby is one of the few journalists who can claim to be friends of the family: he attended the weddings of both princes and gave an engagement interview to William and Kate.

But in 2019, Bradby reportedly upset William by filming a documentary with Harry and Meghan in Africa. Following this, Bradby said he felt “caught in the middle” of heir and reserve, calling it “deeply uncomfortable”.

The ITV man was praised for asking Harry the tough questions, including the contradiction of protecting his own privacy while invading his family. Bradby frequently posts information about his journalism online. But this week, he just hooked up his new detective thriller, which he called “the top news of the day.”

One of the concert attendees told us that Mick didn’t sing, but he was nodding more and more enthusiastically as the night went on. Please, please, let me get what I want?

Prince Harry’s book seems to have gone to the heads of our politicians. The quiet man in the Tory backroom Iain Duncan Smith is so furious that he expressed his feelings with a limerick or attempt at one he posted on the Telegraph’s letter pages. Aside from the messy counter and misfire, shouldn’t limericks be fun? “God, it’s awful,” says writer Philip Pullman. We accept submissions for the better.

The art fair bids farewell to London

A FRESH disappointment in the London art world. The Masterpiece fair, which takes place each summer at the Royal Hospital in Chelsea, has been canceled by the organizer Art Basel. A spokesman tells Art Newspaper that rising costs and a decline in exhibitor numbers, partly due to Brexit, are to blame. Last year, London auction houses said they had been relegated to selling B-list paintings, while good things are lashed out in New York.
