Allegra has said: 'When we got married, that was the end of the relationship, instead of the beginning.' Her parents were separating after 28 years together, and friends say Allegra needed support that Boris seemed unable to give.In 1989, he became Brussels correspondent for the Daily Telegraph. That was probably the only time the comic mask dropped.So striking were her looks that she even appeared as cover girl for the society magazine Tatler.'I didn't really think Boris was making a play for me, despite the fact there was lots of curry-a- deux at the Kismet Tandoori,' says Allegra. Boris felt like a safe place - but not for very long.' The pair married on September 5, 1987, both aged 23.The first wedding was his own, to society beauty Allegra Mostyn-Owen in 1987.The nuptials were, at the time, described as 'like La Dolce Vita and Brideshead rolled into one'.'After I did the cover for Tatler, people decided I must be beautiful. The grand reception at Woodhouse, a Mostyn-Owen estate in Shropshire, featured a string quartet.
Born in 1964, Allegra is the only daughter of acclaimed Italian writer Gaia Servadio and wealthy upper-class landowner and art historian William Mostyn-Owen.Tiny and blonde, she is dressed in a tweed coat and oldfashioned 'Mary Jane' shoes, skipping beside her mother 'on a shopping tour of London's fashionable Bond Street'.Allegra's father worked at Christie's auction house, and the family maintained a London residence where they regularly entertained visiting dignitaries.A privileged existence amid the upper echelons of society seemed assured.In 1968, Life magazine went to Scotland to interview Gaia, describing her as 'a dreamy-eyed blonde who lives in her husband's 17th century castle, Aberuchill, and hasn't the slightest idea how many rooms it contains'.
