Damian is the spitting image of his mum 

She told Tatler: "I could have my millionth midlife crisis because it will be the first time in 18 years there are no half terms, no school holidays, no school runs or sewing name tapes.

"And of course, I embrace it, but it's a real milestone in Mummy's life." 

Damian has followed in his mum's footsteps and has launched his own modelling career. 

He's also a keen photographer and has snapped some of Elizabeth's best swimsuit snaps
