Very tragic indeed to die so young. I just did some research on Skye Wellesley and found that both her parents and herself were on the Rett: There Is Hope documentary, which explored the "incredible family dynamics, groundbreaking treatment, care and science" of Rett's Syndrome. The Skye Wellesley Foundation was set up for Retts Syndrome research.

Quote:
Just outside of London live Lord Christopher Wellesley and his family. He and his wife Emma have four children. Skye, their second youngest was diagnosed with Rett a year ago and since then the family has been focused on her care and the search for a cure. The family is followed while dealing with a feeding tube medical procedure being administered to Skye.

Another sad news as Lady Farnham, The Queen's lady-in-waiting passed away at aged 90 on 29th December 2021. She has served her lady of the bedchamber for 34 years. This comes after the death of The Duchess of Grafton on 3rd December less than a month ago. She married to Barry Maxwell, the 12th Baron Farnham, an Irish peer and Nova Scotia baronet in 1959. He passed away in 2001.
