TALK OF THE TOWN: Stuart Wheeler’s 300-acre estate sale falls through – to the delight of his three daughters

The daughters of tycoon Stuart Wheeler were hugely upset when they discovered a clause in his will stipulating that their magical family seat, Chilham Castle was to be sold and the proceeds given to charity. 

But there has been a reprieve for the trio – willowy model Jacquetta, Sarah and Charlotte – because I can reveal the sale of the £15 million 300-acre estate in Kent has fallen through. 

‘The buyer pulled out,’ my source tells me. ‘The girls will be thrilled.’

 It  has been a playground for rock royalty for decades, welcoming the likes of Mick Jagger, David Bowie and Eric Clapton over the years. 

Now this stunning £15 million six-bedroom Georgian mansion in Richmond, owned by The Who’s Pete Townshend, is understood to have been snapped up by art aristocracy – Damien Hirst.

Maybe it’s the stress of her ex-husband’s legal battles, but it looks like Sarah Ferguson is back on the ciggies. 

She’s tried to kick the habit many times over the years but was spotted with a packet of upmarket Vogue cigarettes, circled, in her bag after an evening at top Mayfair club Loulou’s. 

It would not have been a cheap night – the Vogues would have set Fergie, 62, back £14 and it’s hard to find a cocktail under £20 at Loulou’s. 

Still, she was steady on her feet as she strode to a waiting carafter midnight. 

She clearly still knows how to party!

Meanwhile, the wedding celebrations of billionaire oil heiress Ivy Love Getty and photographer Tobias Alexander Engel were so decadent that guests were offered IV drips – jokingly dubbed ‘Ivy drips’ in honour of the bride – to help them recuperate during the gruelling three-day schedule.

The opulence included a Mark Ronson DJ set, an Earth, Wind & Fire gig, and US Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi officiating at the San Francisco ceremony.

Barbie bride Paris is truly dolled up 

Demure never was in Paris Hilton’s vocabulary – and so the hotel heiress seemed only too happy to emulate a Barbie doll with this neon pink dress, veil and heart-shaped sunglasses on the second day of her weekend-long wedding bash.

She and new hubby Carter Reum, both 40, hired the entire Santa Monica Pier in California to host a modestly titled ‘Paris World’ carnival on Friday. Guests included musicians Demi Lovato and Billy Idol.

The couple had tied the knot in a relatively sedate affair earlier at her late grandfather Barron Hilton’s Bel-Air estate.
