“Where are they now?” – James Hewitt

What has become of the “love rat” James Hewitt?

 

In the first of a new series, we seek to find out what has become of well-known individuals who have faded into obscurity or moved on into others arenas.

 

Our first subject, James Hewitt, will forever be remembered for two things: One will be his affair with Princess Diana. The second will be his “caddish” attempts to sell stories and information relating to this.

 

After the death of “The People’s Princess”, Hewitt appeared on various reality television shows and attempted to sell 64 personal letters he’d received from Diana for £10 million in 2003. Uproar followed and though no purchase followed, his copybook was well and truly blotted.

In a March 2009 interview with the now wife of Piers Morgan, Celia Walden, for The Telegraph, Hewitt commented:

 

“London became like living in a goldfish bowl… I’ve let go of England but I do wish it all the best. And honestly, it’s paradise [in Spain]: I feel so lucky… And I don’t deserve that luck… I’m no longer wanted in England. I could never walk down Oxford Street again. I couldn’t live with the rejection that may happen.”

 

Walden’s feature was timed to coincide with the opening of a bar and restaurant named Polo House that Hewitt has run with Ram Nandkishore since then. The bar, which the recently arrested “celebrity PR” Max Clifford has promoted, became the haunt of the likes of Pat Cash, Martina Hingis and Lauren Goodger, Cara Kilbey and Frankie Essex of The Only Way is Essex.

Today, though, it was announced by The Telegraph’s “Mandrake” that the Polo House has closed. A spokesman for Hewitt and Nandkishore told the paper:

 

“After four relatively happy years, and one bad year, James and his business partner, Ram Nandkishore, decided to call it a day… The split was amicable and James will be staying in Spain and pursuing other interests. He’d had enough in the end. Polo House was a victim of the Spanish recession, but it was fun while it lasted”.

 

Whilst Polo House will now morph into a modern Indian tapas restaurant named Chowka, what, we may ask, will James Hewitt do next?

  1. Quite what the gorgeous Martina would be doing with such low life I can’t imagine. Hope she doesn’t have any red-headed children…. (Reaches for sick bucket)

  2. It’s a shame that Polo House has closed. Excellent food and live singers the night we went. A big loss to the Marbella restaurant scene.

  3. I’ve known James for decades and he is actually a wonderful gent whom I adore. He didn’t say a word until long after Diana’s well-rehearsed and orchestrated interview which left him up the proverbial creek. I wish him all the luck in world.

  4. I am sorry but Hewitt specialises in a rather greasy form of charm. I had the displeasure of being seated next to him at a hen party years ago. He brazenly took cigarettes off me until I told him to desist.
    Quite why anyone would think this social climber worthy of publicity is beyond me.
    And he did spill a lot of the beans. Anna Pasternak was at that same party and the two then became an item and her book followed….
    I can spot a chancer from afar

    • That’s the second comment (under different names) about sitting next to him at a hen party. Liar liar…
      He has always come off as a gentleman. Read his real autiobiography (not the Pasternak drivel).

  5. And this obsession with being being ‘charmed’. As Charlie Saatchi said quoting his mother…”it is better to charmed than be charming”
    I know many ‘charmers’ and often there is little beneath-and some are downright psychopathic
