His adopted daughters caused quite the stir back in the 1960's. The duke and duchess adopted two little girls who were biracial. One of them is the actress Nimmy March. Caused a huge stir, not only among the aristocracy at the time, but in society in general. I have read several articles, one below, where she speaks so highly of the couple who adopted her and the way they raised her.
