DIARY: For a magazine full of tittle-title, Hello! can’t stop losing Maurice’s

Shame on the nobility-hobnobbing caption writers at Hello!. Those unashamed lovers of the aristocracy may be able to tell a marquess from a duke at 50 paces or list the family tree of any piece of titled totty, but they’re clearly not so au fait with the nouveau noble.

Shame on the nobility-hobnobbing caption writers at Hello!. Those

unashamed lovers of the aristocracy may be able to tell a marquess from

a duke at 50 paces or list the family tree of any piece of titled totty,

but they’re clearly not so au fait with the nouveau noble.



Take Maurice Saatchi. As the whole world and their corgi must surely

know, M&C’s top dog was raised to the ranks of the peerage amid a swirl

of press controversy back in 1996.



Not good enough for Hello!, which insists on referring to him as Mr

Saatchi in its latest issue. Presumably Hello! staff don’t read The

Mirror or any other papers. Or maybe they thought that Mozza’s ’demon

eyes’ Conservative Party campaign was, well, a bit common.
