Oddly enough, Barbara Cartland married into the McCorquodale family, which Sarah Spencer also married into.

She wore a very lovely, elegant blue dress to the Royal Wedding in 1981. It's too bad she didn't stick to that simplicity for her wedding to Chambrun.

Whoops!:) Should have dug deeper. I guess Raine took her stepfather's name...

I didn't know it was the same family, though of course I'd caught that the name was the same. Yahooing the name of Sarah McCorquodale's husband in the past has yielded little. Must keep digging.

Apparently both Barbara Cartland's husbands had the same last name; according to one site I was looking at, they were cousins. Saves having to buy new monogrammed stuff, I suppose, if you can marry the same last name both times.

I assume Neil McCorquodale is related to those McCorquodales somehow, although I'm not sure how.

Are there any more pics of Raine?

I was an under-butler and she was a good friend of my old employer so we saw her quite alot. I won't say exactly what she said word for word because I'm not Paul Burrell but I will say that she wasn't 'acid' at all and was a real darling. I've got a Xmas card from her which always makes me feel a little bit 'butterflies in the stomach' - very impressive character.

And the hair is as huge in real life as in photographs!
