These are officially the most eligible dates of 2022, according to Tatler
Shock! They’re not all just posh Tories!
It’s that time of year again, and Tatler is here with its 2022 “little black book” of the most eligible dates right now. It’s full to the brim with rich, cool fitties who have been named as those who we should all be after a date with this year.
The list includes footballers, socialites, royals, and for the first time ever an Islander! It really is full of a whole range of people. Unfortunately I didn’t make the cut this year, but they must just be holding out until next time. So let’s not wait any longer – mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the most eligible of them all?
Up first is Chelsea and England footballer, Mason Mount. Other than being an international footballer, I guess he’s one of the most eligible because he’s literally been on the cover of Tatler in 2022 and is worth an estimated £20million. Sure.
Maybe quite a surprising entry on the list, but here she is, our very own Love Island 2022 finalist, Gemma Owen. This is the first time an Islander has made the list, but she is also the daughter of Michael Owen and an international dressage rider. Very Tatler. Just don’t tell Luca if you think she’d make a great date.
Vimbai and Sarah Masiyiwa
If you’re wondering what makes this sister duo eligible, it’s because Vimbai and Sarah Masiyiwa are the daughters of billionaire businessman, Strive Masiyawa. Sarah is a Zimbabwean journalist, filmmaker and philanthropist, and has been appointed a board member of KidsOR, Kampala in Uganda. Vimbai Masiyiwa is a mental health activist, entrepreneur, and CEO of Batoka Hospitality, which specialises in luxury African safari lodges.
Lady Margarita Armstrong-Jones
Lady Margarita is the daughter of David Armstrong-Jones, the second Earl of Snowdon. She deserves to be on this list for her name alone. Incredibly boujee.
Up next is acclaimed fashion designer Ozwald Boateng’s daughter, Emilia. She was recently pictured on the cover of Tatler, alongside Mason Mount. Her best friend is it-girl Livi Banks, who she used to attend Tatler parties with. She also owns a bikini brand, Emilia Boateng Swim, and says she loves having dinner in Soho.
The Hon Delphi Primrose
Model Delphi Primrose deserves to be on this list for her name and her name alone. She’s 19, a TikToker and socialite and appeared on the cover of Tatler in 2021.
She was the most eligible Edwina Sharma in Bridgerton, and now Charithra Chandran is the most eligible for 2022 in the eyes of Tatler. She’s most recently become an ambassador and face of Levi’s, too.
22-year-old Gaia Romilly Wise is the daughter of Emma Thompson and Greg Wise. Like her parents, Gaia is an actor.
Would this list be complete without a Beckham child? Of course not. 20-year-old Romeo is currently a footballer for Inter Miami II and an ambassador for Puma.
Holly Ramsay is the daughter of Gordon Ramsey. She does cooking herself, has over 340k Instagram followers and has her own podcast, 21 and Over with Holly Ramsay.
For the past couple of years, the UK has been obsessed with train extraordinaire, Francis Bourgeois. He’s made train spotting cool again, and has recently had his own show all about his hobby, featuring loads of celeb guests. With a name like Francis Bourgeois and a North Face and Gucci deal under your belt, you’ve solidified yourself as eligible.
Ok yeah, Diary of A CEO host and the latest Dragon on Dragons’ Den is probably eligible to a lot of people. He’s worth £50million, after all.
Of course we all know Ncuti Gatwa as our Sex Education fav Eric. He’s earned BAFTA Awards for this role, and has now bagged himself the job of being the next Doctor in Doctor Who. Love!
Little Simz is a singer, rapper and actress. She’s recently won a Mercury Prize for her latest album, and also won the best new artist accolade at the 2022 Brit Awards.
22-year-old Rocco Ritchie is the son of Madonna and Guy Ritchie. He’s an artist, and recently had been painting under the pseudonym “Rhed”, but is now showcasing his work via Instagram under the name Maison Rhed. His paintings reportedly sell for up to £24k.
Model and it-girl Stella Jones is your textbook definition of eligible. She’s the daughter of Mick Jones from The Clash and film producer Miranda Davis. Her best friend is Kate Moss’ daughter, and they’re always on fancy nights out in London’s best spots. Stella is a model, signed to Kate Moss’ agency.
Arthur Chatto is the grandson of Princess Margaret, late Queen Elizabeth’s sister. Arthur is 23-years-old and an Edinburgh uni grad. In 2020, when he was a third year student, Arthur and three friends from Exeter University rowed in a race around the entire British coastline as part of GB Row. It took them 42 days, setting the world record for the youngest team to complete this route.
Ben Radcliffe is a 24-year-old British actor, and attended Hurtwood House boarding school in Surrey. You might recognise him from his recent role in Netflix series, Anatomy Of a Scandal.
Saka is a lot of people’s fav England footballer right now. The 21-year-old plays for Arsenal and England, and is often considered one of the best young football players in the world.
India Amarteifio is an actress you’ve definitely seen a lot of recently, because she’s just been cast to play young Queen Charlotte in Netflix’s Bridgerton spin-off! Her breakout role was as Lizzie in Sex Education.
Freddy is a model, the son of Curzon Cinemas CEO Philip Knatchbull, and the great-grandson of Lord Mountbatten. He became a model after being scouted on Oxford Street. Freddy’s girlfriend is Tatler cover girl Delphi Primrose, who also featured in the magazine’s 2022 most eligible list. Freddy is currently studying at Newcastle University.
Hero Fiennes Tiffin
Hero Beauregard Faulkner Fiennes Tiffin, another contender for the best name on this list, is an English actor, model and producer. He went to the well known private school Emanuel School in Battersea, and is best known for his starring role as Hardin Scott in the After film series.
19-year-old Joe Locke won our hearts this year as Charlie Spring in Heartstopper. For this, he received a Children’s and Family Emmy Award nomination. He’s been photographed by Soho House, GQ and Dior.
Right, can I date them all then?
