Consuelo had a very elegant look to her didn't she?

So fascinating ....I wonder how much adjustment needed to be done when marrying into the nobility even though she was a Vanderbilt..although perhaps not as much as I would think.

David Somerset, the 11th Duke of Beaufort, and the president of the Badminton Horse Trials, has died at the age of 89.

The duke died peacefully at his home on the Gloucestershire estate, on Wednesday, August 16.

He is survived by his second wife, Miranda, and four children Harry, Anne, Edward and John, and is succeeded by his eldest son Harry, The Marquess of Worcester. His first wife, Lady Caroline Jane Thynne, died in 1995.

He was a sixth cousin, once removed, of Queen Elizabeth II, through their common ancestor William Cavendish, 3rd Duke of Devonshire.

The duke held the office of Hereditary Keeper of Raglan Castle, was President of the British Horse Society between 1988 and 1990, and was chairman of Marlborough Fine Art. He ranked 581st in the 2008 Sunday Times Rich List, with an estimated wealth of £135m in land.

Has anyone heard of any updates in regards to the Goodwood House robbery last year? I was wondering if anything was ever recovered.

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 British Nobility thread

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'.
