While Honor flashed her legs in a sexy black dress and matching strappy sandals, Tilda wore an ill-fitting Chanel Fall 2019 cream satin suit styled with a feather brooch.

Honor’s father is Tilda’s former partner, John Byrne, a Scottish artist and playwright. She has a twin brother, Xavier Swinton Byrne, who so far has stayed out of the limelight.
According to a report in The Times, John Byrne’s parents were his mother Alice and her own father Patrick McShane – an incestuous relationship he’s since described as “traditional”.
In an interview, he said: “I think he gave me that wonderful mixture of genes with his own daughter, the eldest of the family. That’s what they do in Ireland. I presume it’s what they do in unlettered places, and lettered places. It’s traditional, and nobody speaks about it.”
