It is interesting that Fellowes was first cousin to Sarah Ferguson. I think she called him "Bellowes" when exasperated with him. The two of them were also related to Princess Alice of Gloucester - or at least Fergie was. So interesting. Thanks for the interesting thread.

"Bellowes".... I forgot about that.

According to Wikipedia, his maternal grandfather was also paternal grandfather of Sarah, Duchess of York. I guess they were first cousins then, as it seems Robert's mother, Jane (not to be confused with his wife) was Major Ron's sister.

According to the same source, the baron is now Chairman of Barclays Private Banking. He returned to banking industry, where he was working before his royal service.
He is also on the boards of a handful of organizations, committees, etc.

You will find the most recent images of all the Spencer clans here:
Thread --> Concert for Diana

They were, of course, also here:
Thread --> Memorial Service for Diana but it is harder to see the Fellowes family in those pictures. The Spencer twins rather stole the limelight (at least from the other Spencers) at the memorial service.

Here is a special picture of Lady Diana and Lady Jane, back to back in the Italian Garden at Althorp.

Source information
The late (eighth) Earl Spencer, father of the subjects, was the photographer.
The photo from the photographer's private collection was reproduced in Andrew Morton's Diana: Her True Story with permission of the present (ninth) Earl Spencer.

15 SEP 1989 Diana, Wills, Harry with Frances Shand Kydd, Eleanor and Alex Fellowes at Althorp estate for wedding of Diana's brother, then Viscount Althorp. Frances is holding Eleanor's hand. Alex is walking next to William. Doesn't Alex look so much like Lord Fellowes?

Fellowes and McCorquodale families arriving for Diana's funeral Lord Fellowes holding the hands of son Alex and Eleanor. Laura walks ahead with Emily McCorquodale. Laura has the reddish hair, wearing brown suit. Neil and George McCorquodale ("prince harry lookalike") walks behind Alex, Eleanor, and Lord Fellowes.

Four pics of Lady Jane, Lady Fellowes

It's interesting that Lady Jane continued her family's tradition of marrying the older man (like Diana, their mother, and even their grandmother Ruth Fermoy)... but this marriage seems to have been successful in contrast to the others.

You're right. I didn't think of it before. Lord Fellowes was born in 1941, Lady Jane in 1957. Although she was the middle sister, I think her personality and temperment was older than both of her sisters. Maybe she and Lord Fellowes are of equal maturity in mind, and perhaps the huge gap of chronological difference is just that, chronology.

You're right, CasiraghiTrio, I think. I know Sarah is reputed to be quite fiery, but I've never heard that Jane was a handful. I have the impression that she's a very pleasant, calm person.

Indeed.... it has sometimes been said the "quiet ones" are the trouble, but in Jane's case, it certainly doesn't seem true. The nanny Mark Clarke who published her memoirs about her experience with the Spencers at Park House said she always called Jane the family "peacekeeper," and even went so far as to say she found Jane to have a strong diplomatic quality very unlike the fiesty Sarah and Diana. Well, she didn't use a word like fiesty for Diana. I can't remember exactly how she described Diana, honestly.

What ghastly bridesmaids dresses...but it was the 70's. So I will give it a pass.

I've always liked the picture of the young Diana and the young Jane posing in the garden. Its a nice contrast of my mental picture of Lady Jane giving a reading at Diana's funeral.

And I love the red hair! Harry definitely carries the look of the Spencers.

Lady Jane is serious in personality and temperment. Diana, Princess of Wales was very close to Jane when she was on her own in London.
Diana was given access to the BRF and Prince Charles through Lady Jane and Lord Fellows. But after Diana lied to her brother-in-law, Jane was not that close. I believe that when Diana died she and Jane were not talking.
Jane when she got to the Paris hospital asked if Diana died alone and cried. I think It took a long while before Lady Jane could stop griefing for Diana.

Lord Fellowes (Lady Jane Fellowes husband) gives an interview

He's now a leader in prison reform and has some interesting things to say about Diana and her work. This is well worth a read for various reasons.

I think over ten years after the death of Diana, Princess of Wales
Lord Fellowes must have mellowed towards her. During the 1992 book
they were not on best of terms.

If she had lied to me about her involvement with that book, I wouldn't be on the best terms with her either.
