The Earl of Sandwich and Viscount Hinchingbrooke talk about their plans


Quote:
PROPOSALS to improve facilities at an historic west Dorset house have been submitted to planners.

Mapperton House near Beaminster will open its doors from Easter until Hallowe'en - as the owners hope to have completed their first phase of improvements by the end of the year.

Mapperton House has been the home of the Earl and Countess of Sandwich for the past 30 years - with management of the historic house and estate now passing to their son, Viscount Hinchingbrooke, who intends to turn the property into a more widely-known tourist destination.

This would explain why Lord Bowmont and Miss Sahafi told that they don't plan to marry.
Everything I've seen and read about Charlie screams that he has issues w/commitment. And now there is a baby. I hope he doesn't turn out to be one of those guys who is very comfortable w/walking away from a 'family' unit (which is what he & his girlfriend will be regardless of marriage) when it suits him.

The DM is really a ludicrous "newspaper". "Norris Castle that Queen Victoria once tried to buy"... So not the castle, its history, the breathtaking view, whatever, but the fact that Queen Victoria once was there is the headline?

#Breaking George Bingham, the only son of missing peer Lord Lucan, has been granted a death certificate by a High Court judge in London.


Quote:
The son of the missing aristocrat Lord Lucan goes to the High Court today hoping for a legal ruling which would allow him to inherit the Earl's title.

George Bingham was seven years old when his father vanished after being suspected of murder.

An inquest decided that Lord Lucan killed his children’s nanny Sandra Rivett, after mistaking her for his estranged wife Countess Lucan.

The two had been engaged in a custody battle for their three children.
Over the years there have been many reports of sightings, or theories about how he may have died.

The late Lord Harlech was the second and only surviving son of David Ormsby-Gore, 5th Baron Harlech, and of his first wife, née Sylvia Thomas.
The 5th Baron Harlech was the British Ambassador to the USA in 1961-1965. He was the second (and only surviving) son of William Ormsby-Gore, 4th Baron Harlech, and of his wife, née Lady Beatrice Gascoyne-Cecil.
Lady Beatrice was a daughter of the 4th Marquess of Salisbury and sister of Mary, later Duchess of Devinshire and Mistress of the Robes to Queen Elizabeth II in 1953-1967. This means that the late 5th Baron Harlech was a cousin of the late Andrew, Duke of Devonshire, whose wife Deborah wrote about the Harlechs in several paragraphs of her memoirs "Wait for me!".

Blink and you'd miss this! Story thrown away.

I know this is old but this is exactly what I came on here to find - I didn't learn about this until yesterday! Does anyone else find it a bit odd that this has been kept so quiet? Usually the tabs would be all over this sorta thing - especially given their royal connections. Thoughts?

It made a bit of a stir on several forums when the news first leaked out but then was quickly forgotten. I am a bit surprised that it didn't create a paragraph or two with Hardcastle, Sebastian Shakespeare and co. but perhaps they didn't hear anything of importance, no other person involved etc.

The Percy girls just don't seem to be lucky in their marriages. Katy Percy's marriage also broke up barely a year after her huge wedding at Alnwick. Tom and Missy had split up before, a few months before their engagement, as it was said Tom was seen in a nightclub with another girl. It's to be hoped that nothing like that occurred after marriage. I believe Katy is travelling in Asia with her mother the Duchess at the moment, divorce pending.

It is surprising that it didn't get much play in the press. Especially with how much Guy Pelly gets mentioned for every little thing. The split of William's best friend and daughter of Duke who got tons of wedding pub should have been bigger than Pelly's back taxes.

Definitely surprised to hear that Lady Melissa and Tom's marriage has ended - and such a small piece in the press. Considering how much media coverage there was of the wedding. Tom and Melissa were at Charlotte's christening cause Tom is godfather.

Ok, glad I'm not the only one who was a bit surprised there wasn't more of it in the papers. Even a quick google search and you'd be hard pressed to find something. This would normally be headline news on the Daily Mail! Odd
