Lord Spencer should be very familiar with those names since they apply at least equally to himself

Lord Kinnock's son embroiled in tax row that might cost his wife the Danish prime minister's job | Mail Online

Quote:
An investigation into a tax scandal involving Neil Kinnock’s son Stephen threatens to destroy his glamorous wife’s hopes of becoming Prime Minister of Denmark.
The curse of the Kinnocks has struck again after it emerged that Mr Kinnock junior pays taxes in Switzerland - which has the lowest taxes in Europe - and not in Denmark, where his family home is situated but which has the highest tax rates in the world.

well connie it looks like paul fitzgerald, in the scotsman newspaper, nov 5th 2010 might have the dna evidence to prove that he is the next duke of leinster and that current duke is not heir at all. tyler 123 might want to check into that to see if they are actually related.

FOR more than 40 years Theresa FitzGerald Caudill, a widow based in Scotland, has been trying to prove that her nephew has been wrongfully denied one of the most prestigious dukedoms in the British Isles.
Her journey could now be coming to an end, with the production of DNA evidence to back up her claim that her nephew, Paul FitzGerald, is the rightful Duke of Leinster and should be the head of a colourful aristocratic family beset by scandal and tragedy.
The new evidence supports Mrs FitzGerald Caudill's theory that the title, Ireland's premier dukedom, has gone down the wrong branch of the family. Now there is likely to be a legal challenge to the existing holder Maurice FitzGerald, from Oxfordshire, who is currently recognised as the ninth duke.
The DNA indicates that Paul FitzGerald, a builder based in San Francisco, is descended from Lady Hermione FitzGerald, a Victorian society beauty and Leinster matriarch from whom the titled family also claims descent. - Scotsman

Interesting article.

To be honest here, I'd rather have the aristo's owning and using the land than have it open for foreign buyers/investors such as Mr. Fayed was.

BeatrixFan said "A Duke or a Duchess is "Your Grace",..."

Would a Duke not of royalty be called Your Grace?

(Baby here in the ways of English aristocracy)

Do you mean a Duke who was not born into the royal family?
Such as the Dukes of Norfolk or Westminster?

The answer is yes, all Dukes are referred to as Your Grace.

In the British system -

Royals are Your Majesty for Kings and Queens (with Ma'am and Sir after the first time - so greet with 'Good morning Your Majesty and thereafter 'Sounds like a good idea Ma'am"),
Princes and Princesses, including royal dukes, are Your Royal Highness to begin and then Sir or Ma'am.
Non royal Dukes, Duchesses, Archbishops and Bishops are Your Grace at first and then depending on acquaintance Sir or Ma'am or continue with Your Grace.
Oher titles, Marquisates, Marchionesses, Earls, Countesses (again exempting royals), Viscounts, Barons and Baronesses are My Lord and My Lady, Baronets are Sir and their wives are Lady.

So The Duke of Gloucester would be Your Royal Highness but when his son inherits the title the son will only ever be Your Grace as the present Duke is a royal duke but his son won't be royal (same with the Duke of Kent).

Nobility is a state-privileged status which is generally hereditary.

The aristocracy are people considered to be in the highest social class in a society which once had a political system of Aristocracy. Aristocrats possess hereditary titles granted by a monarch, which once granted them feudal or legal privileges,

I think a noble title is given by the government, like Lord Alan Sugar. Whereas aristocracy is given by the monarch, such as The Duke of Norfolk etc.

The aristocracy is a social class which includes nobles.
