This "news" was hardly a revelation. The rumours have been around for many decades and written abouit quite frequently in relation to Mr Canfield. Why would anyone in 2013 care about such a story?

Well if it's true, that is very good news. I find the Duchess an interesting individual and would love to read a biography about her - I don't think one currently exists.

I have owned the original edition for many years and enjoy rereading it from time to time. One of the captions for a photo in the book always stays with me, "The haunting beauty of the Duchess of Kent."

P.S. To Elly C. from Worcester, England: I was born in Worcester, Mass. People in the USA have a terrible time pronouncing Worcester, lol.
