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

The dowager Countess was considerably younger than her late husband the late 13th Earl!

Indeed, she was some 24 years younger than her husband. IIRC the late Earl of Stair was as old as his mother-in-law.

It was late lady Lucan who didn't want to see her children. She had mental problems.
