Separate lives: Chelsea Clinton, pictured with husband Marc Mezvinsky on their wedding day in July, are said to be spending three months apart
Their lavish wedding last summer had the world captivated. But it seems that the honeymoon period is already over for Chelsea Clinton and her new husband.
Marc Mezvinsky has quit his job as an investment banker in favour of a three-month break at the exclusive ski resort of Jackson Hole in Wyoming.
But rather than accompanying her husband on the extended break, the Secretary of State's daughter will be remaining in New York instead.
The nature of the couple's temporary separation remains something of a mystery.
Mr Mezvinsky, 33, is still listed as a partner on the website of hedge fund G3 Capital, though a colleague told the New York Post yesterday that he was 'unavailable'.
The paper reported that he had left his job in order to spend a season skiing at Jackson Hole, which is a favourite with celebrities such as Clint Eastwood and David Beckham.
Ms Clinton, meanwhile, is remaining in New York, where she is currently studying for a degree in public policy at the city's Columbia University.
The fact that the pair will be living apart comes as something of a surprise, given that friends claim Ms Clinton is desperate to start a family.
A representative for Ms Clinton declined to comment on the reports, but a source close to the couple said that the 30-year-old would be visiting her husband every few weeks.
The couple married on July 31 in a ceremony estimated to cost $5million, that was dubbed by the press as 'America's Royal Wedding'.
They live on New York's Fifth Avenue in an apartment Mr Mezvinsky has owned since 2008.
The pair met while they were both studying at Stanford University in California in 1997, though they didn't start dating until 2005.
Marc is the son of former Republicans Ed Mezvinsky and Marjorie Margolies-Mezvinsky.
Marc’s family were close to Bill and Hillary Clinton during their time at the White House – and were frequent guests at state dinners.
Like his wife, Mr Mezvinsky is no stranger to political controversy.
His father, an Iowa congressman, served five years in jail after pleading guilty in 2002 to charges of bank and wire fraud.
