Speaking at the family home in Richmond, South West London, Mr Knightley, 64, told the Mail: ‘It wasn’t a decision that either of them took lightly. I don’t think there was any one thing that led to their break-up – it was a whole raft of things, I think.
‘It’s very unfortunate, but Keira is coping well and is focusing on a new West End play that she is opening. I know that she and Rupert will remain great friends.’ Miss Knightley, 25, and Mr Friend, 29, who shared a flat near Hyde Park, met when they appeared together in the 2005 film version of Pride And Prejudice.
She's collaborated with Mulberry for a range of bags this season, so it's no surprise to see Cara Delevingne repping the label even more by stepping out to a red-carpet event in one of their Spring/Summer '15 creations.
