A source told The Sun: ‘They have judiciously avoided being photographed together as they both wanted to keep this quiet for as long as possible.

‘Annie proudly tells everyone she is the daughter of a market trader chicken-seller and is as far removed from a toff as could be — frankly it beats any storyline The Crown could possibly come up with.

‘Annie and Andrew get on splendidly — she makes him laugh, a lot, and he is one of the few people to get away with poking fun at her. 

‘She loves to joke she’s ‘new money’ — despite the fact she went to boarding school, her father got a double first and she holidayed for part of the summer at The Carlton in Cannes, when not working behind her mother’s stall. They were set up by a mutual friend.’ 

Both Anne and Andrew have been married twice. 

Anne married the journalist Charles Wilson in 1968. In 1970 the couple had a daughter, Emma Wilson, who became a British radio disc jockey. 

The presenter went on to marry journalist John Penrose in 1980, but they split in 2007 and announced that they were planning to divorce, citing “irreconcilable differences’. 

Andrew, meanwhile, divorced Camilla in 1995 after 22 years of marriage, but remain close friends – despite a complicated history which included infidelity on both parts.

Camilla was famously Charles’s mistress during her marriage to Andrew, while the latter is described by friends as having been ‘very naughty with women’ throughout.
