RICHARD EDEN: Sleeping beauties! Cara Delevingne reunites with her sisters for pyjama party
Pillow fight, anyone?
Society model Cara Delevingne enjoyed a pyjama party as she was reunited with her sisters, actress Poppy and former midwife Chloe, for the first time since Christmas.
Newly brunette Cara, near right, flew in from California, where she now lives, to join Poppy, and mother-of-two Chloe, for the nocturnal get-together in London.
Naturally, the affluent trio didn’t sling on any old nightwear but matching £460 horse-print silk jim-jams.
Happily, this party didn’t flout any rules.
At Christmas, their property developer father Charles was said to have defied lockdown rules by hosting a secret bash for the family at a rented mansion in Oxfordshire.

She has been accused of handing down ‘genetic pain and suffering’ and her family tarnished by racism claims, but the Queen clearly does not hold a grudge against Prince Harry.
I hear the monarch has invited her grandson to join her for lunch at Windsor Castle when he flies over from California for the unveiling of the Princess Diana statue next month.
‘It’s a typically magnanimous gesture by Her Majesty,’ a courtier tells me. ‘The lunch will be a chance for them to talk things through.’
The invitation is said to have been made before the birth of the Duke and Duchess’s daughter last Friday. Harry and Meghan announced that they had called her Lilibet after the Queen’s family nickname.

Meghan is expected to stay behind at the couple’s £11 million mansion in Montecito, California, with baby Lilibet and their two-year-old son, Archie.
It would be the first time that Harry has had a tete-a-tete with his grandmother since he and Meghan announced that they were quitting Britain more than a year ago.
After the rancour of the Sandringham summit and tense ‘Megxit’ negotiations, she hosted an informal Sunday lunch for Harry in March 2020 — a month before he and Meghan formally stepped down as working members of the Royal Family. They ate in the Queen’s dining room in her Windsor Castle apartment. When Harry attended the funeral of his grandfather, Prince Philip, he spoke to the Queen only outdoors with other members of the Royal Family.

They will certainly have much to discuss. In his and Meghan’s now infamous interview with Oprah Winfrey, they made a string of distressing claims about the Royal Family and accused an unnamed royal of racism. In a string of public appearances since, Harry has blamed his family for his mental anguish and said just the thought of flying back to London was enough to fill him with dread.
The Queen, by contrast, has made clear that Harry and Meghan will be ‘much-loved family members’. A Buckingham Palace spokesman declined to comment.
Cheering news for Sir Malcolm Rifkind. The Tory grandee, who was widowed two years ago, has a new lady in his life: socialite Sherry Bodie, mother of Prince Andrew’s ex, Arabella Bodie.
‘They are the talk of North London dinner parties,’ a friend tells me. Rifkind declines to discuss his new companion.
Sherry’s daughter made such an impression on Andy he introduced her to the Queen just a month after they met.
Stars are always desperate to shine on the red carpet, but Billie Piper’s happy to share a more candid view
Stars are always desperate to shine on the red carpet, but Billie Piper’s happy to share a more candid view.
The actress made a video of herself in a London hotel bathroom preparing for the Bafta awards, where she was nominated for best leading actress in the Sky series I Hate Suzie.
Wearing nothing but a towel, she was recorded by the show’s creator, Lucy Prebble, whom she nervously asked: ‘Do you think I’ll win best actress?’
When Lucy replied yes, Billie burst out laughing. In the event, she lost out to Michaela Coel, in I May Destroy You. First prize for frankness, though.
Could your little darling be the new Elizabeth Taylor? A nationwide search is on for two young girls to play the role of a teenage Cleopatra and as a young woman in a lavish new West End musical about the Egyptian queen.
‘Our Cleopatra should have an amazing voice, striking good looks and be able to dance and act,’ songwriter Rawaa Barnes tells me.
‘She definitely needs to have the “X Factor”, because she was such an extraordinary woman.’
Known as the ‘original hippy aristocrat’, baronet Sir Mark Palmer is in mourning.
The Queen’s godson has lost his wife of more than 40 years, the astrologer Catherine Tennant, who’s died aged 74.
Her childhood friend, the author Simon Blow, tells me: ‘I’m very sad, as we grew up together. I have very fond memories of Catherine.’
Gregarious Tennant was the daughter of the 2nd Baron Glenconner and mother of top model Iris Palmer. She became the stargazer for Vogue before joining the Daily Telegraph.
In the Swinging Sixties, Sir Mark set up the first hip modelling agency, English Boy.
He and Catherine went on to adopt an alternative lifestyle, travelling around the country in a horse-drawn caravan.

What do you give the man who has everything for his birthday?
In the case of the world’s richest artist, Damien Hirst, who turned 56 yesterday, his girlfriend, former ballerina Sophie Cannell, 27, unwrapped herself on a dancing pole, surrounded by balloons.
It’s installed at their £36 million, 14-bedroom home in London’s Regent’s Park.
However, Hirst seemed more impressed by his cake, baked in the shape of a training shoe and its box.
