If I recall correctly, also Lady Brabourne attended William and Catherine's wedding.

Together with Norton?

Lady Penny has been seen quite frequently in the last weeks.

Here she watched the procession for the Order of the Garter together with Sarah Chatto:

She looks fantastic! Well maybe this separation is for the best (although I wouldn't have wanted to go down that way with my husband) but since we don't know the specifics of the relationship.

Lady Brabourne looks nice in these pics. A bit tired maybe, but I don't think she has lost much of her beauty and radiance. Thank you for the photos, Dierna23!

Is Lord Brabourne still in the Caribbean? You definitely see her more with the BRF than him. Or just plain out and about in England these days than him.

She does look fantastic!

Yeap, Lord Brabourne is still in the Caribbean.
He and Lady Genie Nuttall seem to be seen quite openly and regularly together: http://www.sunpostweekly.com/wp/wp-c...ie-Nuttall.jpg

Strolling with his father, the tattooed ex-drug addict heir to £100m Mountbatten fortune

Quote:
In suede jacket, checked shirt and smart loafers, the grey-haired gentleman walking down the street is a picture of well-to-do respectability. A few paces ahead, with cropped hair, tattoos and jogging pants, is a young man who looks like life has dealt him a somewhat tougher hand. But although they appear to come from opposite ends of the social spectrum, this is, in fact, father and son.

Interesting article, except they are wrong is saying the son is also known as Lord Romsey. That was his fathers courtesy title as the heir to the Earldom of Mountbatten of Burma and remains technically his even though he is now Lord Brabourne having inherited his fathers peerage. The sons only style is "Honorable", both as the son of Lord Romsey and Lord Brabourne.

It is nice that he may be recovering from his addictions, although I do hope his parents have done everything possible to protect the fortune and the estate. Addicts have a tendancy to backslide.

Thanks for the article!
It is a real ordeal for any parent to deal with problems a child may encounter. Hopefully Lord Nicholas will be able to overcome the difficulties in his life.

^ Well, I for one would like to see Alexandra Knatchbull inherit the estate. She seems like a hardworking, intelligent girl and an excellent daughter unlike her terrible brother. Of course, she won't be able to inherit the title, but I've never understood the preference to have a sub-par male manage the estate rather than any female at all.

Once a junkie, always a junkie. People who stop taking drugs, are still addicts mentally for the rest of their lives, and often just transfer the attention of their addiction to some other thing or action. If they want the estate the survive, it should go to Alexandra, who could still keep the family line going, though without the accompanying title.

On a side note, I find it rather interesting that Nicholas Knatchbull has no wikipedia aritcle despite his very eventful life, and yet Alexandra does. I think someone (perhaps close to the family) has removed it from wiki and now has Nicholas' link directing you back to his father's page. Hmmm...

The article stated that the parents had thought about disinheriting Nicholas, in which case the estate would have gone to Alexandra, right? But the old traditions about inheriting tiles, and even family estates, are still strong in the United Kingdom. Brothers also still come before sisters in the succession to the throne. I guess it wouldn't be totally impossible to have Alexandra inherit the estate instead, if Nicholas is unable to stay away from drugs. But inheriting a title would be harder.

The money of the Mountbattens comes mostly from Edwina nee Ashley, who inherited Broadlands from her father's side and millions in money plus other estates via her late mother, who was a daughter and heiress of banking magnate Sir Ernest Cassel. Edwina was after the death of her father raised by her maternal grandfather and became his heiress.

As the estae and money came over a female inheritance, it is surely not entailed, so Countess Mountabtten could leave a safe trust form her grandson to care for him even though he is an addict. but leave the rest via her son to Alexandra. No problem, I guess, as this is not old nobility money. When her father suceeds to her grandmother's earldom, Alexandra will become Lady Alexandra anyway, so she'll have her own title.

That could be finally a start of the happy revival for the family,if only Nicholas tries to put a definite point to all the past bad connections and dangerous habits.
It's unbelievable how good-looking he was , while a teenager.

Earl Mountbatten’s great-grandson, the Hon Nicholas Knatchbull and his dreadlocked lover Zeaphena Badley have scrapped plans to marry — to the relief of his family and to her sanity.
