The couple regularly share snaps of their adventures around the world on Instagram, visiting snowy Amsterdam in January and St Barth last August.

Meanwhile David’s relatives Lord and Lady Tollemache live close to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in the ancient, vast and moated Helmingham Hall, where the Queen is a regular overnight guest.

Their two sons are both true Turnip Toffs: banker Edward, Prince Charles’s godson, and his wife, Sophie, have two young sons; and fund manager James, who was at Eton with William, is married to Princess Florrie von Preussen (of Prussia), who used to style for Oka, the upmarket interiors label owned by Samantha Cameron’s mother.
