From today's Page Six:
"One of English society's long-lasting couples (19yrs.) has called it quits. Designer Allegra Hicks and decorator hubby Ashley Hicks, the son of David Hicks and descended from Lord Mountbatten, have separated. Friends of the couple are unsurprised, noting that Allegra had been unhappy with the moody Ashley for years, and has shed more than 20 pounds since the split. But weight and a spouse aren't the only things Allegra has lost: Her design business recently shuttered its Madison Avenue and London locations, both recession victims."
