I can't be 100% certain but it looks like Jean Shrimpton.

The outdoor shots at the beginning are in London's West End. You just see a bus passing the cinema, and then goes to Great Windmill Street. link https://www.google.com/maps/@51.5109121,-0.1339933,3a,75y,9.15h,90.33t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sKcEuSNW20OEZOJlMQShVgA!2e0!7i16384!8i8192

I've created a png file with Jean Shimpton and the lady in the video, side by side:

The actress is the one that re-appears often throughout the video. I've been trying to find her name for the best part of a decade (the video on that youtube link has only been there for three years).

This webpage has still shots from the video. The actress, or model, is shown at 1:06, 3:19 and 4:26

Cat Stevens posted this when Barry Ryan died in September 2021:
Yesterday a good old buddy of mine passed away, his name was Barry Ryan. Our time together began back in the 60's when he and his twin brother, Paul, were all tuxedo-suited, poppy teenage stars. I had written a song for Paul and Barry Ryan called 'Keep It Out Of Sight' and so we began hanging out. Their step-father was the major entertainment agent, Harold Davidson. We were prone to raving-a lot. It was through Barry I met Patti D'Arbanville."

I've created a webpage showing Patti D'Arbanville (aka Lady D'Arbanville) and the lady in the video side by side:

Here are some other shots of Lady D'Arbanville:

It might be her, but it's not a 100% match.
