There are 92 hereditary peers still in the House of Lords but they won't be going anywhere anytime soon.

Quote:
A bill to scrap hereditary peer by-elections has faltered amid claims of an attempt to talk it out.

Tory peer Lord Trefgarne was accused of being involved in a "clear filibuster" to prevent the House of Lords Act 1999 (Amendment) Bill from progressing.

He also tabled more than 40 of up to 60 amendments with fellow hereditary the Earl of Caithness for debate.

He was warned by other peers that standing in the way of reform risked making the chamber a "laughing stock".

The Dowager Marchioness of Salisbury also designed gardens for the Prince of Wales at Highgrove and to the delight of satirists encouraged him to talk to his plants. “Don’t all gardeners do that?’’ she enquired innocently. “If you love and care for your plants, it makes such a difference.”

The aunt of TV quizmaster Bamber Gascoigne has bequeathed an "extraordinary" collection of books to a Cambridge University college.

Mary, Duchess of Roxburghe, left more than 7,000 books - including first editions by Wordsworth, Shelley and Byron, to Trinity College's library.

The duchess, who died in 2014 aged 99, kept some of the rarest, undiscovered works in an old blue suitcase.

Mr Gascoigne said it was "a delight" to see the books in their new home.

Oh, that's wild. Historic treasures in an old suitcase, but it reads as if the suitcase kept these priceless works in good condition. The British Noble families have just as interesting lives, sometimes more interesting, than the Royal Family.

TBH it speaks volumes that no-one charged with the care of the MANY antiquities at Blenheim has not recognised it before. Even those with a cursory knowledge of the History of Art would recognise it as Roman.. it simply could not be anything else !

Many centuries artist used to make roman style copies. Now it's hard to identify original pieces without an expertize.

The Earl of Onslow has slammed the National Trust's plan to rebuild his ancestral home, which burnt down in a fire two years ago.

The National Trust has said it will rebuild Clandon Park house, the 18th-century Palladian-style mansion in Surrey, with plans to create cafés and a giftshop on the site.

Rupert Onslow, the 8th Earl of Onslow, said the trust should be honouring its remit to 'preserve and protect' and questioned whether the organisation should be spending £30 million to rebuild the house from scratch.

No date, so far. Afaik, it's not even known if they are going to marry this year or next. Nowadays people often take a lot of time to organize their big weddings, bu of course I hope for a big wedding this year.
