On Thursday, the couple was photographed at the Royal Academy of Arts where they were taking in the Francis Bacon: Man and Beast exhibition. They were both dressed casually and wore face masks. Yet, Harry Styles was noticed by several One Direction fans on his birthday.
“Harry and Olivia looked like they were having lots of fun as they browsed the gallery,” a witness told the Daily Mail. “Only a few One Direction fans noticed that Harry was around, so they mostly remained undisturbed….They didn’t hold hands, but you could still see their closeness as they admired the art together.”
Olivia did eventually post on her Instagram Stories about her visit to the museum, urging other people to see it. “Francis Bacon at Royal Academy if you’re in London go, go, go,” she wrote.
Olivia Wilde also posted a photo of herself standing at a table lighted with candles and covered with flowers during a dinner party honouring Harry Styles’s birthday at St John’s Bread and Wine near London’s Spitalfields Market. Over the photo, she wrote “happy, happy.”
Styles is said to be filming a music video for the first single off his upcoming third album in London. Bradley and Pablo, who also directed the video for the musician’s song “Watermelon Sugar,” are in charge of the video.
Styles has met Wilde’s two children, Otis, seven, and Daisy, five, according to a source, who told The Sun in late December that it was becoming his most serious relationship.
“This looked like quite a showbizzy thing at first, two glamorous people hooking up but now it’s obviously a lot more than that,” the source claimed. “They held back a bit at first but now that things are more settled the time was right to do the next thing….It’s really exciting for them – and for Harry it’s the most serious he has ever really been about somebody.”
The couple began dating in January 2021 when they started working together on the film Don’t Worry Darling.
Olivia Wilde, 37, opened up to Vogue in January about the stigma surrounding her relationship with Harry Styles because of their enormous age gap, saying: “It’s obviously really tempting to correct a false narrative. But I think what you realize is that when you’re really happy, it doesn’t matter what strangers think about you. All that matters to you is what’s real, and what you love, and who you love.”
She continued, “In the past 10 years, as a society, we have placed so much more value on the opinion of strangers rather than the people closest to us. I’m happier than I’ve ever been. And I’m healthier than I’ve ever been, and it’s just wonderful to feel that.”
