The 10th Duke of Richmond, who revived the fortunes of the Goodwood estate and caused a society scandal when he adopted two mixed-race girls more than half a century ago, has died at the age of 87.

The Dowager Countess of Lucan (widow of the disappearing Lord Lucan) died yesterday.

A lonely end to a sad and rather lonely life.

I am really very saddened to hear this news - may she rest in peace.

For decades she was deemed to be an eccentric recluse, but it is no wonder given the way her family treated her.

The reality, I personally think, is that she was a very elegant, interesting and intelligent woman who lived a quiet life in the centre of London. In recent years, I read that she was often seen walking in the Royal Parks, she had friends with whom she met for lunch at good restaurants.

dy Lucan asked her publisher to remove two references about her close relatives in her book shortly before her death because she 'didn't want to upset them'.

I hope there was some sort of reconciliation between the dowager Countess and her children before she died.

I don't believe there was. She was estranged from her children and apparently had never seen her grandchildren.

RIP the late Dowager Countess of Lucan..

It cannot have been an easy life, a gambling, violent wastrel of a hubby, discovering the body of his victim, knowing that she herself was his intended target, dealing with the aftermath and attendant endless publicity after his disappearance and bringing up their Children alone, not knowing if he was alive or dead..

I think that while Lucan treated her abominably, she did have mental helath problems, which surfaced at times. He tried to take the children from her, but after his disappearance, she did end up in differences and rows with the children..

Somerleyton Hall is in the same county I live in, so I found the following article in the local news which might be of interest:

ETA: Here's a photo of Lady Somerleyton wearing, I think, the lost necklace: https://c2.staticflickr.com/8/7129/6...2c8e2bde_b.jpg
