Moments - 'moment' (import; weight etc) + '(file)s' (last of)
Peafowl - "pee-foul" ("water-repellent", reportedly; heard)
Puerile - 'ER I' (Tudor Queen, in) 'pule' (whimper)

Question Author

Thanks -just couldn't see moment meaning important or foul as repellent. I'll forgive myself 17d as I've never heard of pule.

You're welcome 😊
