The Lady Sarah Clutton, née Fitzalan-Howard, died on 14 June 2015 aged 73.

Lady Sarah Margaret Fitzalan-Howard was born on 28 September 1941, the third of the four daughters of the 16th Duke and Duchess of Norfolk.
She was married since 1988 to Nigel Clutton; she didn't have issue.

She was the heiress presumptive to the title of Lady Herries of Terregles, whose currently holder is Lady Mary Mumford, older sister of the deceased; the new heiress is their younger sister Jane, Marchioness of Lothian.

Secrets of the royals' party planner, Lady Elizabeth Anson | Daily Mail Online

I guess Lady Anson capitalises on her royal connections ... as usual. Her remarks about her clients are mauvais ton.

I would be surprised if she said anything that wasn't cleared through the palace first.

And in fact she doesn's say anything too much extraordinary, IMHO.
Just the most important point of the interview is that she hasn't been actually fired by Sheik Hamad bin Abdullah Al-Thani and that all has been quickly solved.
Nothing outstanding and just a little advertising for her activity.

Sally, Duchess of Newcastle died July 9 2015. She and the Duke of Newcastle were divorce. Since there are 2 daughters by his second wife there are living members of the family, Sally was not the last trace of the family.

He was the eldest of the three sons of the late journalist Sir David Frost and of his wife, née Lady Carina Fitzalan-Howard. Lady Carina is the second daughter of the 17th Duke and Duchess of Norfolk and the sister of the current Duke.

Such sad and shocking news. Sounds like it'll more than likely be either an Aortic Aneurism that gave way or Sudden Cardiac Arrest. If it was an SCA, then considering both he and his Father have both passed from Heart Attacks, I hope the Family is tested for the Grinkov Factor. After the sudden death of Olympic Pairs Champion Sergei Grinkov from a sudden Heart Attack that was unexpected, when asked, his Widow and Partner Katia Gordeeva told the Coroner's Office to do whatever testing needed to be done to find out the cause.

The circumstances were the same as this. First his Dad and then Sergei died from Heart Attacks *and* Katia and Sergei had a Daughter, so if it was a genetic flaw somewhere in the DNA, she wanted it found so Daria could be tested, as well as Sergei's Sister and her Family. Sure enough, there was a flaw in his DNA and when testing was done on other victims of an SCA, that same flaw was found, which is now called The Grinkov Factor.

There are two younger Sons and Brothers left behind and considering how both their Father and Brother have passed away, I really, really hope someone they know in the Medical Community who knows about this test talks to them about it. They need to know if that same flaw is in their DNA so they can at least know about it and at least be prepared in some way.

My deepest Sympathies go to the Frost Family at this terrible time. Definitely gone too soon. :(

A brilliant portrait of Earl Marshal and Hereditary Marshall of England Edward William Fitzalan-Howard, 18th Duke of Norfolk. The image by Hugo Rittson-Thomas will form part of a new exhibition called The Queen’s People

I guess this goes here;


@RoyalCentral: The Succession to Peerages bill (which would allow women to inherit titles in UK) will be debated in the House of Lords on 11th September.

@RoyalCentral: The Succession to Peerages bill failed to make progress in the last Parliament, though is being given another chance in the Lords.

Torquhil Campbell, 13th Duke of Argyll, is not a man to put on aristocratic airs. A visit to his castle in western Scotland finds the duke greeting delighted US tourists and donning an apron for a stint behind the gift-shop till.

“I don’t see myself as a duke or whatever,” he says, taking a break from his hands-on role at what is one of Argyll’s biggest visitor attractions. “I just see myself as a person who’s very fortunate to run a really good business.”

Inveraray Castle and the duke’s 65,000-acre estate are hardly an ordinary business, however. And these are sensitive times to be an aristocratic landowner in Scotland, where calls for land reform have become a hot political topic since last year’s hard-fought referendum on independence from the UK.

I would love to see this get up, even if it was still male preference with females able to inherit if there are no sons. That would allow Beatrice to inherit York which I think would be wonderful.

She would then be the first woman to hold the duchy of York in her own right. Yeah, that would be nice.

Quote:
Kinvara Balfour has carved out a niche for herself in the challenging worlds of fashion and technology, without trading on her aristocratic status. She tells Genevieve Fox why she’s not resting on her laurels.

In a starry meritocracy where titles no longer cut it unless you are a character in Downton Abbey, Lady Kinvara Balfour, niece of the Duke of Norfolk and distant cousin of Anne Boleyn, has taken her status and run with it. Not for her the taking of tea in a stately or child rearing, charity fundraisers and chats with the chinless on the parterre. The 39-year-old energy ball has assiduously broken the mould, creating a niche for herself as a tech head, fashion pundit, playwright, public speaker and entrepreneur.

The Lead belonging to the Church where Princess Diana's Father is buried has been stolen. The vicar has held a service where the thieves were prayed for and apparently its going to take £40 k to replace the stolen Lead.
