Jemima Goldsmith enjoyed a sunny day out with her new male friend Alex Chitty earlier this month in West London.
The screenwriter, 48, cut a chic figure in a white shirt and matching rolled-up trousers while strolling with Vice executive producer Alex through the capital.
Following lunch together at the trendy River Cafe in Hammersmith, a source told the Daily Mail: ‘They certainly seemed to be very comfortable. And they weren’t at all bothered at being seen together.’

Alex, who is based in Los Angeles, kept things low-key in a navy polo top and tan shorts.
Jemima’s past relationships include romances with actor Hugh Grant, comedian Russell Brand and The Crown writer Peter Morgan.
She was previously married to Pakistan’s former Prime Minister Imran Khan, whom she married when he was 42.
The producer later said: ‘It [marriage] is not a normal decision, aged 21, with all the freedoms and privileges we grew up with, to essentially give those up, to go and live in an extremely black and white culture and adopt a black and white way of life and doctrine, with a man who was twice my age and a born-again Muslim.’

Neither Jemima nor Alex were available for comment.
It was previously revealed in early 2021 that Jemima was dating The Crown writer Peter Morgan, just weeks after his split from Gillian Anderson.
Jemima’s relationship with Peter emerged less than four weeks after Gillian and Peter announced they had split after four years together.
Peter and Jemima started a romance which saw him spending time with her in a ‘social bubble’ at her house earlier that new year, amid the Covid pandemic.
Reports of them already living together were said by sources to be wide of the mark.
However, the pair, who have known each other for years, were thought to be ‘serious’ about each other already.

‘There is a bit of a feeling that Jemima might have been holding a candle for Pete for some time, or at least have had her eye on him’, an insider told the Mail On Sunday.
And Gillian – who has gained plaudits for her portrayal of Margaret Thatcher in the fourth series of The Crown – was allegedly ‘upset’ at the way her former partner has moved on so quickly.
She was reportedly ‘bemused’ at the new relationship, with friends saying ‘she has certainly raised an eyebrow or two’ at news of the romance.
One friend of Gillian’s suggested to the Mail On Sunday that Jemima has been trying to make a romance with Peter for ‘quite some time’.
A source close to the couple said: ‘They have been seeing each other happily since the New Year.

‘They are old friends and are now in what they call a legit support bubble.’
Jemima has two sons – Suleiman, 25, and 22-year-old Kasim – from her marriage to former cricketer Imran. The couple married in 1995 but divorced nine years later.
Since then, the daughter of the late tycoon James Goldsmith and socialite Lady Annabel Goldsmith has dated several high-profile men including Hugh, Russell Brand and the late Shane Warne (ex of Liz Hurley).
There also seem to have been brief flirtations / friendships with comedian Jack Whitehall and former footballer Jamie Redknapp, conducted at the Chiltern Firehouse restaurant in 2018 and 2019.
Jemima was associate editor of political magazine The New Statesman and was European editor-at-large for the US magazine Vanity Fair and now runs a film production company.
