So why exactly do you not like the current system? And why do you "hope"?

Saying that someone cannot comment on the constitution or politics of another country is pure xenophobia IMHO. I favor separation of Church and State as a principle, in the same way for example that I oppose the death penalty as a matter of principle. That is true whether I'm talking about the US, the UK, Iran, or any other country.
I get that you favor separation of church and state but why would you post an opinion about another country's constitution without an explanation of why it should be different. To have an opinion without any weight behind it is not necessarily something to be proud of.

DNA evidence could be used for the first time to resolve a feud over a hereditary aristocratic title after the Queen personally intervened in the case.

The dispute was triggered when an amateur genealogist revealed that a distinguished baronet came from a different bloodline to his relatives, suggesting there may have been an illegitimate child in a previous generation.

The two rival branches of the family have since spent thousands of pounds on a legal battle to prove which is the true line.

Peerage authorities have been called upon to determine if genetic material could be used to determine who should inherit the Pringle of Stichill baronetcy.

The Queen herself referred the case to the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council.

The little-known court of top judges will rule on whether DNA evidence can lawfully be used to settle the issue of the hereditary title.

Am I the only one who doesn't get a sound for this video? It looks like it would be very interesting.

What a sad article. But yeah, if the British aristocracy started having these problems already back in the Victorian age, we can only imagine what they have to go through today.

I think they may have their sound muted or something.

A question I have been wondering about for some time: does a settled and definite correct way exist for styling the daughters of Peers who are married to Baronets?
A couple of examples:
Annabel Goldsmith (née Vane-Tempest-Stuart): as the daughter of a Marquess, she would be called Lady Annabel Goldsmith; as the wife (now widow) of a Baronet, she should be Lady Goldsmith and later Annabel, Lady Goldsmith.
Carina Frost (née Fitzalan-Howard): as the daughter of the Duke of Norfolk, she shoud be styled Lady Carina Frost; as the wife (now widow) of a Baronet she should be Lady Frost and now Carina, Lady Frost.
Which of the two is the most correct way to style them?

A Baronet is not a peer. The holder of the title is a commoner. So for example Lady Carina Frost is the correct style and not Lady Frost

The same would apply to Annabel Goldsmith. Her style would be Lady Annabel Goldsmith and not Lady Goldsmith.

This style applies to the daughters of Dukes. Marquess and Earls who marry commoners

Thank you; I had not considered that, in any case, it is the daughter of a Peer marrying to a commoner, and this is the decisive point of the question.

It's a sad story all round, particularly for Sandra Rivett, the murdered nanny, and her family. I also feel for Lady Lucan and hope her children will reconcile with her one day.

Was it ever determined if the blood in his car belonged to the nanny, Lord Lucan or Lady Lucan?

There must be more to the story if the children have not spoken to their mother since 1982.
