The Viscount appears to have fully embraced the vodka aspect of the party.

A Lady with an incredibly interesting lineage, as well as being the wife of the Duke of Abercorn. She was the granddaughter of Lady Zia Wernher (neé Countess Anastasia de Torby, daughter of Grand Duke Michael Mikhailovich of Russia).
Lady Zia's daughter Georgina, Lady Kennard (the mother of the late Duchess of Abercorn), was a close friend of Prince Philip Duke of Edinburgh in their youth, partly due to the marriage of Lady Zia's sister Nadejda to Prince George of Battenberg, later 2nd Marquess of Milford Haven - and an uncle of Prince Philip.
The wedding of the 4th Duke of Abercorn to the late Duchess at Westminster Abbey in 1966 was attended by many members of the Royal Family including The Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh, and Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother.

A lot of people don’t realise Canada has a few hereditary peers.

David Thomson, 3rd Baron Thomson of Fleet, is the richest person in Canada. To put it in perspective, he’s about 3 times richer than the Duke of Westminster.

Yes, there are a few. But most were created when we were still a dominion. Since 1917, you have to have British citizenship to accept a peerage. Which by the old Canadian citizenship act, you could only hold dual citizenship if you married a Brit. 1st Baron Thomson actually gave up his citizenship to be a peer. His son and grandson who followed though were/are Canadians still. And yes they are 5 billion pounds richer then the Duke of Westminster.


Anyone who used to watch the show 'The Nanny' or who watched Days of Our Lives back in the day and know the character Shane Donnovan, know another Canadian peer. The actor Charles Shaughnessy is 5th Baron Shaughnessy. As he only has daughters, his brother is heir. Though they hold a Canadian peerage, Charles and his brother were raised in London.


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_Shaughnessy


The other Canadian peerages that are extant:


Peers created before 1917

Baron Strathcona and Mount Royal: Currently held by 5th baron
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baron_...nd_Mount_Royal

Baron Shaughnessy (above)

Baron Beaverbrook: held by the 3rd baron. Another who lives in UK
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maxwel...on_Beaverbrook

Baron Morris: held by the 4th baron
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baron_Morris

after 1917

Baron Thomson of Fleet

Baron Coleraine: technically was born in the UK, but had duel citizenship due to his father. Holder is his son


There are 8 extinct peerages, including 3 viscounts. And a number of life peerages as well. There are also peers who have chosen to live in Canada, but whose titles originated in the UK of course.


There were also Canadian peers in the French system as well. All but one of them have gone extinct.

Baron de Longueuil is still extant. Its the only French colonial peerage recognized by the queen. The first baron was given his peerage in 1700 by Louis XIV. It is currently held by the 12th Baron.


Note the current Baron Longueill is actually a second cousin of the queen. His mother was Ernestine Bowes-Lyon. Her father was the queen mum's older brother Ernest. Ernestine grew up at Glammis castle, and around the queen mum. His daughter is actress Rachel Grant

A Conservative backbencher Member of Parliament will propose a Ten Minute Rule Bill today regarding female succession to hereditary titles. Ten Minute Rule Bills are not expected to become law, but they can serve as a test of the amount of support in Parliament for potential changes.

Hereditary Titles (Female Succession) – Hansard

Ten MPs became co-sponsors of the bill, including eight women but only two men. A Ten Minute Rule Bill may be challenged by one Member of Parliament, and Martin Docherty-Hughes held a speech bitterly opposing it. Mr. Docherty-Hugues called the proposal "tosh", claiming that it would "enshrine privilege in the hereditary peerage" and that older women and the women in his community who voted for him would be "appalled" at it. However, his claims are false. Female hereditary peers do not, and would not according to the bill, enjoy any privileges above male hereditary peers. The YouGov survey last year showed that 79% of women, 75% of people age 50 and older, and 74% of supporters of Mr. Docherty-Hugues' party (the SNP) believe daughters should have the same rights as sons to inherit titles.

But it seems allowing women and girls to inherit remains a very controversial proposal in Parliament.
