Though she may have only Prince George's stepdaughter, she retained a strong relationship with the Danish and Norway royals and some of the other royal relatives as well. Princess Beatrix is godmother to her daughter Fiona.

She was often seen at events for the continental royals. She attend GD Jean's funeral last year. Here she is with Anne, the Gloucters and the Countess of Burma at the funeral.

She was quite close to Harald and Sonja. She attended their joint 80th birthday.

Originally from the Daily Mail, but Tatler has picked this news up. Hon. Garrett Alexander Moore (son of Derry Moore, 12th Earl of Drogheda) is engaged to Colleen Camp.

Good luck to them his older brother Benjamin Viscount Moore is the heir to the Earldom,I don't think he's married yet.

For an Anglo-Irish aristocratic family not much is ever heard about them here.

Speaking to Eden, he said, ‘Colleen and her work are so inspirational and filled with light at this strange time that one forgets all else. It may seem like Harold And Maude to some on the sidelines, but I prefer the idea of Mrs Robinson in The Graduate.'
I'm not sure Mrs Robinson is a more positive descriptor than Harold and Maude but he does have a sense of humour about it.

Since I don't know either of them I can only wish them good luck.

I'm not sure that the at the time (of filming The Graduate) 37-year old Anne Bancroft would be that happy about being compared to the 75-year (at the time of filming H&M) old Ruth Gordon

Still, if it was reversed, with the male much older, nobody would give it a second thought.

It's certainly considered much more usual and traditional. That said there are still eyebrows raised if there's a large age gap and if the man in question is well off that's taken as the obvious answer as to why. There was a lot of that when Lady Kitty got engaged.

Well, perhaps the male's heirs, because they might have to share the inheritence with other babies about to be born.

I guess, the playmate here, there won't be any...

Lady Moyra Campbell, daughter of 4th Duke of Abercorn and Lady Kathleen Crichton, has passed away at the age of 90. Lady Moyra was one of the six Maids of Honour at Queen Elizabeth II's coronation in 1953. She then served as a Lady-in-waiting to Princess Alexandra (1954-1964), them to the Queen (1964 to 1966) and then as an extra lady-in-waiting until 1969.

Her husband's name is actually Peter Drummond Campbell-Grove. He legally added Grove, the surname of his paternal grandmother, in 1973.

Her son Rory Campbell-Grove is 53. He and his wife Dr Catherine Shaw are the parents of her three grandchildren. They have two daughters 18 and 14, and one son who is 16.

Her younger son Michael Campbell-Grove is 50. He is the godson of Prince Michael of Kent. Michael is married to Lady Georgiana Gascoyne-Cecil, the daughter of the 7th Marquis of Salisbury.

The townhouse that was once lived by Mary Caroline, Duchess of Sutherland (2nd wife of George Sutherland-Leveson-Gower, 3rd Duke of Sutherland) is up for sail. She was described as a "wicked stepmother" over the 3rd Duke's inheritance.

Unity Mitford

I have read a couple of books on the Mitford sisters and am currently reading "Wait for Me", by Deborah Cavendish, Duchess of Devonshire. I have been wanting to read books on each of them. I have found three books on Unity Mitford that I am considering: Hitler's Valkyrie, Unity Mitford: A Quest, and Hitler's English Girlfriend.. I have read that Hitler's Valkyrie is not well-researched, but is based on recall from the author's grandmother. Are any of these book reliable? If not, can someone recommend one that is? Thanks.

Thanks eya for the links, The Marchioness of Bath looks beautiful in these two pictures.

Tatler has now released four articles on The Marchioness of Bath

A history of Longleat, the Marchioness of Bath’s family seat
The sprawling country estate provided the backdrop to the January issue cover shoot starring chatelaine Emma Weymouth
https://www.tatler.com/article/longleat-history

The Marchioness of Bath’s most stunning beauty looks
Whether she’s making a statement with a pillar-box red lip or wearing an ethereal up-do adorned with flowers, high glamour is always on the agenda for Tatler’s January cover star

The Marchioness of Bath’s life in parties
https://www.tatler.com/gallery/march...n-social-scene

The Marchioness of Bath stars in a costume drama at Longleat on the January cover
There’s a new era dawning at Longleat – and a new Marchioness. Strictly’s Emma Weymouth, now Emma Bath, opens up about spending lockdown with the lions and the family’s wildly ambitious plans for the estate
https://www.tatler.com/article/march...ary-2021-cover

I would love to visit Longleat in the future, not just the stately house, but also the safari park. Of course, there is also Emma's Kitchen.

Apparently there was nothing of interest for Queen Mary to nick at Eastnor. The family are rather amused by their distinction.
