IIRC, Pippa Middleton was also dating/is friends with George Percy.

Mirabel 11-06-2012 06:31 PM

Yes, they are all members of the same long-term circle of friends. Thomas is best friends with William and Harry, while Melissa is close to Chelsy and Eugenie.

I expect we'll see all of them at the wedding next summer, including Pippa.
Wonder if either William or Harry will be a groomsman?

Is Francois Stoffels ofthe French nobility?

Biri 12-27-2012 08:58 AM

Probably yes; in French surnames the particle "de" is the sign of the nobility.

His ancestor was Gabrielle Maria Laura d'Hautefort,daughter of Armand,the last Marquis d'Hautefort who died at the beginning of the 20th century...

Gabrielle married Fernand Stoffels de Varsberg(son of Charles Stoffels de Varsberg and Kathinka Weckbecker de Heddesdorf),a family of German descent living in part of France which is now near the French-German border...

As Gabrielle died before her father,her husband Fernand was then adopted by the last Marquis and changed the name from Stoffels de Varsberg to Stoffels d'Hautefort,as there were no male heirs left of d'Hautefort family...they had 4 sons and Francois Stoffels d'Hautefort is a descendant of one of them!
