Lady Jane is also the aunt of the Duke of Westminster making the new Duke of Roxburghe the grandson of two dukes a "feat" he shares with the Duke of Northumberland.

The 11th Duke of Roxburghe also married the 3rd child of Maxwell Aitken, 3rd Baron Beaverbrook in 2011, Hon. Charlotte Susanna Aitken. However, they divorced a year after and Charlotte remarried last March of this year to Francesco Bellasi.

And one other piece of trivia, Lord Ted Innes-Kerr, the current Duke’s brother was a roommate of Pippa Middleton’s at Edinburgh university and also attended Pippa’s wedding with his then fiancé Celia Brook.

The duke's grandmother May Goelet was a wealthy American heiress and the niece of society hostess Grace Vanderbilt. Grace's husband Cornelius was the uncle of Gloria Vanderbilt and a first cousin of Consuelo Vanderbilt Duchess of Marlborough.

To add a bit more information, Cornelius Vanderbilt is also the great uncle of Anderson Cooper, CNN's anchorman.

Woah! You mean there's actually someone out there that has a golden toilet worth that amount of money?? Now that's what I call going in style but I imagine gold is just as cold on the bare bottom in the middle of the night in the dead of winter as any other toilet seat is. Or was the toilet seat mink?

If I understand it right, it was a piece of art called "America" - fully functional but not intended to be used...

Hmmm...

I could comment, but that would be tasteless as well.

While oddly functional, never meant to be used as such.

Quote:
A unique solid gold toilet that was part of an art exhibit was stolen early Saturday from the magnificent home in England where British wartime leader Winston Churchill was born.

The toilet, valued at roughly £1 million pounds ($1.66 million Cdn), was the work of Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan.

The artwork, called America, had been installed only two days earlier at Blenheim Palace, west of London, after previously being shown to appreciative audiences at the Guggenheim Museum in New York.

Though the duke's brother did joke about not knowing who used the toilet last.

And sadly the last Countess of Kenmare the Earldom went extinct in 1952.The family seat was at Killarney House and the family burial vault is located at St at the nearby Mary's Cathedral in Killarney.
