BeccaLynn07 11-10-2005 03:04 PM

I hope he is alright....strokes are rather serious. May he get well soon.

Lady Marmalade 11-10-2005 06:38 PM

I hope he recovers as well, and quickly. His photographs are truly works of art.

BeatrixFan 11-10-2005 06:41 PM

I hope he's ok. Doesn't sound too great but he'll be in good hands.

Lady Marmalade 11-10-2005 06:43 PM

He has his wife, Lady Eloise, and Viscount Anson as support as well.

I always liked him, no airs about him whatsoever.

My condolences to Lord Lichfield's family, particulary to Her Majesty The Queen. I knew that the Union Jack was flying at half-mast, but I just assumed that was for Armistice's Day.

btsnyder 11-11-2005 08:19 AM

Can anyone find the photographs Lord Lichfield took of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor in 1967?

BeatrixFan 11-11-2005 08:20 AM

Lord Lichfield was a photographic genius. His portrait of the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh is up on my wall - the one he took for the Jubilee. One of his best. Has anyone got the one he took of Margaret Thatcher at 80?

The father of a friend of mine was a photographer in the UK and a good friend of Lord Lichfield. My friend says that he was a really nice man. It is such a shame and he was relatively young.

Lady Marmalade 11-11-2005 12:21 PM

What a wonderful man and photographer.

My sympathies go out to his three children, Tom - 6th Earl of Lichfield now, and Ladies Rose and Eloise.

He truly had a talent and passion for his vocation and will be missed....

ysbel 11-11-2005 12:42 PM

Lord Lichfield was a very talented photographer and a very charming man but I always was uncomfortable with his attitudes towards women. He seemed to regard women as pretty jewels to look at rather than full three dimensional human beings.

He also had affairs with several common women while reserving marriage for ladies of the aristocracy. I have no problem with marrying within your class but I do have a problem with having one set of criteria for women you have romantic relationships with and another for women you marry.

Zonk 11-11-2005 01:38 PM

Quick question...the Hellomagazine article said his mother was Princess Anne of Denmark. I am not familiar with her...can someone provide me with some info. Thanks!

btsnyder 11-11-2005 02:32 PM

Anne Bowes-Lyon was a member of the Queen Mother's family. Her first husband was Lord Lichfield's father. She later married Prince George of Denmark.

btsnyder 11-11-2005 02:37 PM

Anne Ferelith Bowes-Lyon was the daughter of Hon. John Herbert Bowes-Lyon (of the Earls of Strathmore and Kinghorne) and Hon. Fenella Hepburn-Stuart-Forbes-Trefusis (of the Baron's Clinton).

She was born on 4 December 1917 at Washington DC, USA. She married Major Thomas William Arnold Anson, Viscount Anson (son of Thomas Edward Anson, 4th Earl of Lichfield and Evelyn Maud Keppel) on 28 April 1938. She and Major Thomas William Arnold Anson, Viscount Anson were divorced in 1948.

She married HH Georg, Prince of Denmark, son of HRH Axel, Prince of Denmark and HRH Margareta, Princess of Sweden, on 16 September 1950 at Glamis Castle, Glamis, Angus, Scotland.

Princess Anne of Denmark was awarded the Order of the Elephant by Queen Margrethe 2 on the 16th of April 1974.

Princess Anne died on 26 September 1980 at age 62 at London, England, UK.

This was a great aristocratic match; unfortunately the marriage didn't last. Lady Leonora Grosvenor is the daughter of the Duke of Westminster, one of Britain's richest men. As an aside, she was a potential bride for the Prince of Wales at one time. But she decided she didn't want the restrictions of Royal life, so it came to nothing.

They divorced "circa 1986".

Here's something else that's interesting...

Children of Thomas Edward Anson, 4th Earl of Lichfield and Evelyn Maud Keppel
Lt.-Col. Thomas William Arnold Anson, Viscount Anson+ b. 4 May 1913, d. 18 Mar 1958

The late Earl was the son of Viscount Anson. Anson's mother was a Keppel. Camilla's extended family pop up in the most unexpected places!

kelly9480 11-12-2005 05:34 AM

They divorced in 1986, after eleven years of marriage, allegedly due to his infidelity.

Leonora is the sister of the current Duke of Westminster.

Private Funeral Held For Lord Lichfield

The coffin of Lord Patrick Lichfield makes it's way into St Michael and All Angels Church on November 21 2005, Colwich, Staffordshire, England. Royal photographer Lord Lichfield died on November 11, 2005 and is to be buried in the Lichfield family vault at St Michael and All Angels Church near to the family's ancestral home of Shugborough Hall

So non members of The Royal Family be at the Funeral?I don't think The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh will be there cause they will be in Wales tonight anyway for the Royal Variety Performance, and the Prince of Wales is quite busy today with engagements in Oxford.

wow. ok, i guess the word "romantic' isnt really appropriate for a funeral, but these photos are incredible. the fall leaves, the mist settling in, the old tomb stones...lots of atmosphere.

Lady Marmalade 11-21-2005 12:15 PM

So either they family wanted the funeral to be private...or the royals will attend a memorial at a later date...just like they did when Lord Romsey died.

He was known as a total womaniser, still he will be missed.

I completely agree. i think that is disgusting! as if women who werent aristocrats were less deserving of respect. well, I guess they did choose to have affairs with him so they enabled it. but still for him to differentiate between marriageable and non marriable based on class is repulsive.

BeatrixFan 11-29-2005 01:37 PM

I remembered an old joke today. The Queen was in Australia and had just arrived in Melbourne. She was introduced to a man and asked her usual, "What do you do?" question. "Well Your Majesty, I'm a photographer". The Queen broke into a smile. "Really? I have a cousin who's a photographer". The man looked at the Queen and said in all seriousness, "Even more of a coincidence Ma'am, I have a cousin who's a Queen". The cousin of course was Lichfield.

Lady Marmalade 11-29-2005 02:02 PM

Actually.... she said, "Oh how terribly interesting, actually my brother-in-law is photographer." To which the man said, "Really, I have a brother-in-law who is a queen." HM moved on without another word. She was referring to Lord Snowdon....not the Earl.

BeatrixFan 11-29-2005 02:06 PM

Thankyou Lady Marmalade! I originally posted Brother in Law and thought, no, that can't be right, it must have been a cousin - at least I'm not going barmy!

As a passionate photographer myself, I admire Lichfield a lot! Has anybody an idea, where I can find his portraits of the royal family? Especially those from the members of the Kent-family (saw only a few in a magazine)? I googled, but found nothing.

iowabelle 07-09-2009 07:38 PM

I was amazed to see his guest appearance on Keeping Up Appearances (the cruise show, where Hyacinth believes Onslow and Rose stowed away on the QE2).
