DIARY: Let us not to the marriage of two such PR minds admit impediments

What the Kennedys are to America and the Redgraves to the theatre, so the Watts dynasty will henceforth be to PR.

What the Kennedys are to America and the Redgraves to the theatre, so

the Watts dynasty will henceforth be to PR.



For, on July 13, within the walls of Westminster Abbey, the heir to one

of the greatest PR fiefdoms in the land will marry into another noble PR

line. Or rather, Marcus Watts, son of Reggie - former Burson-Marsteller

chairman and chief executive, chairman of the PRCA and president of the

IPR - will hitch up with Cameron Choat and Partners’s Burger King

account director Emma Sturt.



Sturt, 31, tells me it was some time after she met her 33-year-old tax

investment consultant beau, at a Honorary Artillery Company ball, that

she realised who he, or rather his dad, was. ‘I rather fell into PR, so

it was funny to find I was marrying one of its virtual founders,’ she

muses.



Reggie, whose occupations include being a Westminster Abbey steward, is

himself rather tickled by the match. ‘Jonathan Choat and I often talked

in the past about Reginald Watts Associates and his business coming

together,’ he reveals. ‘So it is funny that, although our companies

didn’t get in bed together, they’ll now be linked up like this.’



PR will not, however, rule the whole occasion. Despite Sturt’s client

loyalties, I understand the reception is taking place in Westminster’s

College Gardens - not at the Victoria Burger King.
