EMILY PRESCOTT: Posh and Becks re-wild their £6m Cotswold estate
EMILY PRESCOTT: Posh and Becks have joined the rewilding craze with a wildflower meadow at their £6m Cotswolds estate
David and Victoria Beckham have previously been accused of ‘trying to bring suburbia to the countryside’ as they develop their Cotswolds bolthole with tennis courts, a treehouse and a huge kidney-shaped lake.
But at least the fashion-conscious pair are following the trend for rewilding, too. Documents filed by the couple show they plan to plant a wildflower meadow at their £6 million farmhouse on the Great Tew estate.
It’s part of a landscaping plan alongside boxes for bats and swifts, new trees and native hedgerow. David is already a keen beekeeper and is producing his own honey after installing a hive during lockdown.

Crush of the week… Jesse Grylls
Jesse Grylls is following in the footsteps of his adventurer father Bear. But while the 19-year-old enjoys exploring the world, he’s combining his travels with developing a career as an artist.
Since leaving Eton, Jesse has been creating stencilled graffiti-inspired work in an old grain barn at his family home and tells me his parents are ‘super supportive’.
‘Trying to become an artist you are semi-prepared for everyone to say, “When are you going to get a real job?”, but everyone has been so amazing,’ he says.
And he has high hopes for being my Crush Of The Week. ‘Maybe I’ll get a date from it,’ he jokes.
Edward’s bid to stay in Vogue
Fashion insiders were surprised the Duchess of Sussex dropped her truth bombs in little-known US magazine The Cut rather than Vogue, which is edited by her chum Edward Enninful.
Sources tell me Meghan is using this week’s UK trip to cosy up to Enninful and may even attend the launch of his autobiography at swanky Claridge’s hotel tonight.
Meanwhile Enninful is said to be saving some of his juiciest revelations on life at publishing giant Condé Nast for the second part of his memoirs.
‘Just you wait for book two,’ says my source.
