Celebrity hairdresser Daniel Galvin Jnr has split with his glamorous wife after 20 years, MailOnline can reveal.

The 51-year-old society stylist, friends with Prince Charles and hairdresser to stars like Kylie Minogue and Amanda Holden, is in the advanced stages of divorce from former model Suzanna Galvin, 62.

She told MailOnline today: ‘I can confirm that Daniel Galvin Jr and I have been separated for over a year. We have been going through divorce proceedings since September 2020.’

Suzanna, 62, who is now a celebrated designer responsible for the interiors of her husband’s high-end Belgravia salon, declined to comment further saying this was because of ‘ongoing court proceedings.’

Suzanna had been married to the renowned hairdresser since 2000 and they had been something of a golden couple, feted by royalty and high society and featuring in publications like Hello magazine where their glamorous lifestyle was detailed.

The high-profile stylist, who was awarded an MBE in June for his work with The Prince’s Trust, became personal friends with Prince Charles, who invited him to collaborate on charity projects at his Highgrove estate, as well as other members of the royal family like Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie.

But friends had become concerned in recent months that things weren’t right between the couple who shared a stunning £1.5million Georgian farmhouse in Worcestershire which has opulent interiors designed by Suzanna and magnificent four acre gardens with views over the Malvern Hills.

Daniel, who in younger days had a chronic cocaine addiction and was a regular at hedonistic Mayfair nightclub Annabel’s, would often post gushing tributes to the ‘love of my life’ Suzanna in the first months of lockdown last year.

On Valentine’s Day 2020 he wrote: ‘Punched above my weight 26 years ago with this beautiful creature,inside and out!! Excited to be spending our 26th valentine’s weekend with my soul mate, Suzanna, together in the countryside.Filled with love in our garden…..Love you truly, deeply, madly as ever!��❤��❤ #valentinesday2020 #truelove’

In May he wrote: ‘I feel very grateful to be in lockdown in my countryside home with my stunning wife and muse Suzanna. She is the love of my life and without her I would not be where I am now.’

And in June he called her ‘My love, My Wife, My Life’ as they celebrated their 20th wedding anniversary, adding: ‘I wouldn’t be here without her love, patience, self-determination, intelligence and unconditional support. She is truly beautiful, inside and out. I’m so proud of everything she has achieved and she is the most wonderful wife and mother.’

But as summer turned to autumn the loving tributes began to stop and there were signs that the marriage when the Galvin family celebrated his MBE at Buckingham Palace and Suzanna was absent.

The hairdresser took his mother Mavis and celebrated at top London restaurant Mosimann’s. He told an interviewer: ‘There was only one woman I wanted with me – and that was my mother.’

Mr Galvin Jnr is the owner of award-winning haircare ranges Dubble Trubble and Organic Head and runs a salon in a listed building in Belgravia London.

The couple met at a society christening and married at a church in Hampstead in June 2000.

Daniel Jnr is the fourth generation of his family to run hair salons in London. His father Daniel Galvin Snr famously gave Diana Princess of Wales blonde streaks and styled Lady Thatcher’s hair.

Against his father’s wishes, Daniel Jnr left the family business years ago to join a rival salon, before setting up on his own. It regularly features on Made in Chelsea.

The 51-year-old spent his 20s battling a £1,000-a-day cocaine addiction before his drug problems ended in 1998 with a six-month stint at Narconon, a ‘non-medical’ rehabilitation facility in America, based on the philosophies of L. Ron Hubbard,

They have a 21-year-old son, Rhett, together and Suzanna has another son from her first marriage, 31-year-old Raphael Yadgaroff, who has been accused of the assault on the hairdresser, as reported by MailOnline last Thursday.

Their son Raphael Yadgaroff (pictured) denied assault at Worcester Magistrates Court and will stand trial

Yadgaroff is said to have carried out the assault during a blazing row at the family’s luxury 200-year-old farmhouse in June. Police were called after Daniel was allegedly set upon by his stepson.

Yadgaroff appeared at Worcester Magistrates Court where he formally denied assaulting his stepfather – and the case was adjourned for a full trial in October.

Yardgaroff, 31, a martial arts enthusiast from Bristol, was granted conditional bail.

He faces a maximum sentence of six months’ imprisonment or an unlimited fine if convicted.

Galvin Jnr himself appeared in court in the town himself in 2008 – and was emotional after being cleared at nearby Worcester Crown Court of an attack upon farming neighbours with an air rifle and rocks.

He was handed a suspended jail term over lesser chargers relating to a bitter boundary dispute but this was later quashed on appeal.

Daniel also has a son, James, now in his twenties, from a brief relationship with former topless model Gaynor Goodman.
