    The Prince of Wales's goddaughter and socialite. Very famous in the UK.

    Here's more about her:

    Tara Palmer-Tomkinson (born 23 December 1971) also known as T P-T, is an English socialite, "it girl", television presenter, columnist, model and charity patron. Her activities have been well-covered by the British tabloid press, and in the mid to late 1990s, she wrote a weekly column for the Sunday Times and subsequently contributed to The Spectator, The Mail on Sunday, GQ, Eve, Harpers and Queen, Tatler, Instyle and The Observer sporadically.

    I'm not gonna justify her behavior but I think it's stupid by that lounge to refuse her the entrance.

    Huh? Why because she is the Prince of Wales god-daughter? :rolleyes:

    She was flying J to Switzerland... BA does not have F service in Europe and she attempted to enter the F lounge and went into a rage even after quite correctly directed to the Galleries (business class )lounge

    This person is a DYKWIA. End of story. Evidently, a slow "news" day for the UK tabloid media.

    From what I have read there are no reports that she had the required status.
    There are lots of reports regarding BA lounge staff misinterpreting entrance rules, particularly at LHR but I doubt
    considering who she is, that the situation would have gotten this far if she was eligible for admission.

    The UK tabloid media tends to fixate on royals and quasi-royals.

    By the way, nice seasonal dachshund.

    It was unclear if she was trying to get into the Galleries 1st Lounge (which was packed last time I was there) or possibly the Concorde Room (the real 1st Lounge) which is exclusively for 1st Class PAX only(?) - not even OWE - alas...:(
