Charles Innes-Kerr, Marquess of Bowmont and Cessford, and his girlfriend Morvarid Sahafi are expecting their first child together.
Lord Bowmont, 34, is the eldest son and heir of the Duke of Roxburghe. He has been shortly married to the Hon. Charlotte Aitkens, daughter of Lord and Lady Beaverbrook, in 2011, but they split after just about one year of marriage.
He has been dating Miss Sahafi for one year. She is an Iranian fashion designer. The couple doesn't plan to marry.

Therefor the child will be illegitimate and if a son not in line to the dukedom, that could create all sorts of ill feeling later on. A somewhat selfish thing to do in my opinion.

The DM article says the baby is a girl so she wouldn't inherit the dukedom anyways.

The father isn't divorced from his first wife, so he can't really marry his girlfriend.

They separated in July of 2012 after less than a year of marriage.
Why has the divorce not taken place?
Is it because she is Catholic and is refusing to divorce on religious grounds?

ETA. from the DM when they separated.

Well, I don't see why she would like to keep her wows to a husband, who is clearly serious about another woman and expects a child with her. Then again, I guess I'm not Catholic.

This isn't the 30s, can't he file for divorce even if his wife doesn't want to? The divorce would be legal but just not recognised by the Catholic Church.

.. Of course he can divorce her, even if she doesn't want to - it just takes longer...

Sorry, but isn't it possible that the couple has quietly divorced sometime in the past three years and simply the thing hasn't been made public?
This would explain why Lord Bowmont and Miss Sahafi told that they don't plan to marry.

Such situation for the British upper class is typical.

It is very unfortunate that the couple is unable to preserve the union.

The 6th Earl of Erne, who has died aged 78, was for 25 years the Queen’s representative in Co Fermanagh, Northern Ireland, and the owner of Crom Castle, on the shores of Upper Lough Erne, which in 2013 became the setting for Blandings, the BBC’s adaptation of the PG Wodehouse stories, starring Jennifer Saunders and Timothy Spall.

The Earl of Erne was in my humble opinion a gentleman. May he rest in peace.

She was a member of one of the most glamorous, eccentric families the British upper classes have ever known.

Admirers of Deborah, the late Duchess of Devonshire, are to be given a glimpse into her remarkable personal life, as photographs by Sir Cecil Beaton are exhibited together at Chatsworth for the first time.

The owners of stately home Goodwood House were attacked and tied up by a robber who stole more than £700,000 worth of heirlooms including a diamond ring that Charles II gave to his mistress, police said.

Lord March was struck over the head during the robbery, while his wife Lady March was forced to open the safe at their 17th century stately home in the early hours of the morning. The couple were then bound before the robber made his escape.
