Fred Astaire's sister, Adele Astaire, married into the Cavendish family. She became Lady Charles Cavendish, but unfortunately despite being a love match their marriage was unhappy due to problems conceiving and alcoholism by her husband:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adele_Astaire


Not a Hollywood star, but JFK's sister, Kathleen Kennedy also married a Cavendish. She fell in love with Lord (Billy) Hartington, heir to the Duke of Devonshire title, when her family lived in England during her father's ambassadorship. Both families were against the love match due to religious differences. But the lovebirds did marry quietly before Hartington went off to fight in WWII. Unfortunately, he died in battle. Kathleen became Marchioness of Hartington instead of the Duchess of Devonshire. But she also died in a plane crash in the early 1940s before the war ended.

Interestingly, young Kathleen took the young British nobility set by storm with her charm, grace and fun sense of humor during a party at the famous Cliveden House. The regal residence was owned during the 1930s by the Astor family:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kathle..._of_Hartington

A book by Barbara Leaming chronicles the love story between Billy and Kathleen:

Now a luxury hotel, Cliveden House was where Meghan, her closest friends, and her mother Doria stayed the night before the royal wedding last May.

Among the aristocracy and former royals, its not that uncommon it seems.

Actress (and first Hispanic Miss USA) Laura Harring was married once to Carl-Eduard, Count von Bismarck-Schoenhausen (great-great grandson of Otto von Bismark).

Actress AJ Langer (My so called life) is the Countess of Devon. She married her husband when he was Lord Courtney. They moved to Poderham Castle after her father in law died.

Interesting info re Grace Kelly in Monaco....Lee Grant on interviewing middle-aged Grace, discovered Grace felt so diminished, criticized by the females in Monaco Royal Court she had become inhibited, and fearful. A sincerely sad revelation.

Though she was a dancing queen in her day ,Frida was later Her Serene Highness Princess Anni-Frid of Reuss, Countess of Plauen,not bad at all.

Prince Ranier strikes me as something of a tragic figure in Grace's life..his attitude softened several years into the marriage as he observed apathy and long term low spirits. He began to imagine what might snap her out of it to feel well again, with an interest in possible projects. The fifties had come and gone, while the 60's were altogether different. Films beckoned but unless she embarked on a very different path from her prior work, the risks might not have been worth the reward. Otoh, a great director, other than Hitchcock.. it's hard to say what might have been.

There were clearly a few great films left in her, pretty much scuttled on behalf of the principality and people of Monaco, who felt at the time, that it was beneath her.

Fashion model and actress Keisha Omilana met Omoba Adekunle Adebayo Omilana, a member of the House of Arigbabuowo and an omoba (prince) of the kingdom of Ipetu-Ijesha in Yorubaland, West Africa when she got lost on her way to a model casting. The couple married a month later in a private ceremony in New York City with twenty guests and a clergyman from Nigeria. A week-long royal wedding was celebrated later in Nigeria.

She is an American dancer, actress, philanthropist, educator, public speaker, and author. By birth she is a Mende princess of Bumpe in Sierra Leone. As a Mahaloi, or granddaughter of the Paramount Chief, she is accorded the status of princess by the Mende people.

The former actress and celebrity chef has said she has faced racism and snobbery from the British upper classes unwilling to accept her.



Since her husband hasn't become the Marquess of Bath yet, I believe she is not the UK's first black marchioness as of 2019.

Russian Regalia

Does anyone know of the link between the present Queen of England and the Russian royals -the Romanovs? I understand Prince Phillip is the son or nephew of Princess Alice, but Queen Elizabeth how is she related to Tzar Nicholas and co, as great cousins, the argyle line doesn't sufficiently explain the House of orange of William and Mary to direct lineage of the Stuart and Tudor period?

We all know Alexeii Romanov, Tzarevich couldn't walk about much in his young years, wearing calipers etc according to the Exhibition this year of the Russian Royals at the Science Museum, does this comply with modern tastes?

Queen Elizabeth is not directly related to tsar Nicholas, however her husband Prince Phillip throught Queen Victoria is related to the romanovs, not to tsar Nicholas but to Tsarina Alexandra, he is her a great-nephew, and is DNA was used to macht the remains found of the imperial family. So yes they are both related to the Romanovs directly or indirectly through family relations.

Nicholas II, Queen Elizabeth II's grandfather George V, and Prince Philip's father Prince Andrew of Greece were all first cousins (grandchildren of Christian IX of Denmark). Empress Alexandra and Philip's maternal grandmother Victoria Milford Haven were sisters. And his paternal grandmother Queen Olga of Greece was a Romanov and a first cousin of Nicholas II's father.
