Poor kid, bullies are going to have a field day. Triple Douglas is just too much.
Sometimes parents should really think about consequences before naming their kids.

Well at least when someone calls him Douglas it won't matter to him if they are calling him by his first name, family name or title. Maybe he will actually just use the name Charles. Anyway he will probably acquire a totally unrelated nickname in school.

It also seems to be something of a family tradition, for at least the last 4 dukes, to include the name Douglas amongst the heirs Christian names.

Duke's son launches legal battle after claiming he was 'duped' into selling £10m painting for just £4m | Mail Online

Quote:
A member of one of Britain’s most colourful aristocratic families has launched a legal battle to recover a painting he says he was duped into selling for less than half its true £10 million value.
Lord Edward Spencer-Churchill, 37, a son of the Duke of Marlborough, claims he was ‘screwed’ into agreeing a price of £4 million for Jean-Michel Basquiat’s 1983 work Museum Security (Broadway Meltdown) last year.

Lady Mary Charteris weds in an odd cutaway bridal gown by Pam Hogg | Mail Online

Was the dress supposed to be edgy? Lady Mary looked cheap.

While not traditional by many people's standards, if the bride loved her dress and was happy more power to her. Everyone has their own unique taste.

Nicole, Duchess of Bedford, née Schneider, passed away in Monte Carlo on 7 September 2012, aged 92.

She was born at Paris on 29 June 1920. Aged 18, she married to painter Henri Millinaire, by whom she had four children: Didier, Catherine, Gilles and Agnes.
Her first marriage wasn't a happy one. In 1960, she married secondly (as his third wife) to John Russel, 13th Duke of Bedford; they didn't have children together. Their marriage lasted until the Duke died in 2002.

She is survived by her two sons and one daughter (a daughter having predeceased her in 1998).

A shame about the Dowager Duchess of Northumberland. Just two weeks ago I watched on YouTube a documentary about the 1939 debutante season and she had a good many stories to tell in it.

Jemma Kidd's makeup is really excellent quality (her foundation has to be one most my favourite ones ever, be it High Street or high end), so I'm a bit surprised to learn of the company's difficulties. This said, even the most promising venture can go bankrupt without a proper administration.

^ At least Nicholas looks a lot healthier, though I dare not utter the word clean yet, given his history.

Does anyone (or is anyone able to find out or tell me how to find out) if Sally, Duchess of Newcastle, and Anne, Duchess of Leinster, are still alive? I would really appreciate it

You could try searching thepeerage.com
Anne appears to still be alive, I did not look for Sally.

I had tried thepeerage.com but it's often out of date. I doubt there really are that many supercentenarians in the Howard family, for example I'm especially curious about Sally, as she (if alive) is the last trace of the Dukedom of Newcastle.

The Dowager Duchess of Newcastle (nee Sally Ann Anstice, daughter of Brigadier John Anstice, and the third and final wife of Henry Pelham-Clinton-Hope, 9th Duke of Newcastle-under-Lyne) is definitely still alive.

I am not entirely certain about The Dowager Duchess of Leinster (nee Anne Smith, daughter of Lt. Col. Philip Eustace Smith, and second wife of Gerald FitzGerald, 8th Duke of Leinster), however all the sources point at her being alive and well.
