“I will never remarry,” she told Net-a-Porter. “I mentioned my husband the other day with someone, and they said to me: ‘You mean your late husband?’ I said, no, he is always going to be my husband.”

She conceded: “I do feel very lonely. But do I want a relationship? I can’t say never, but no, not now.”
