Lady Sarah McCorquodale (née Spencer) and Family
 
Hello,

To me, Sarah Spencer comes of as an interesting person in the book "Diana, her true story". So I tried to find some info and pics of her on the internet but found nothing!
I'm curious about what she does now, what she did, looks like etc. Has anyone got some info and/or pictures to share?

I'd be happy,

Marina :flower:

an article about the sisters


Lady Sarah Mccorquodale and Lady Jane Fellowes
Keeping a sister's legacy alive and her boys in their hearts
Growing up, the Spencer girls were a study in contrasts: Sarah, the oldest, was the wildest of the bunch. Jane was considered quiet and dependable. Then came Diana, shy, pretty and eager to please the outgoing Sarah, whom she idolized from the start. "When Sarah returned home from West Heath School, Diana was a willing servant," Andrew Morton wrote in Diana: Her True Story, "unpacking her suitcases, running her bath, tidying her room."

Ironically, by the end of Diana's marriage, McCorquodale, now 43, had become her unofficial lady-in-waiting. "I think Sarah knew about Diana's affairs," says royals author Judy Wade. "In a way she even encouraged Diana to be wild and to have lovers." Meanwhile, Jane, 41, grew more distant from Di because of her own marriage -- and loyalty -- to Sir Robert Fellowes, who became the Queen's private secretary in 1990. Now, a year after Diana's death, the two sisters find themselves again in contrasting states: one thrust reluctantly into the public domain and the other constricted by her own grief.

Diana may have called her "the only person I know I can trust," but McCorquodale has had less success in winning the confidence of the British public. As president of the Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fund, she has borne the brunt of criticism that the fund has been slow to hand out its $132.8 million to charities and has accepted endorsement deals of questionable taste, associating Diana's memory with lottery tickets and margarine. (In March the fund dispensed its first $12.8 million to eight of Diana's favorite causes, and an additional $8 million is currently being distributed.) But a warmer reception may greet McCorquodale across the Atlantic. In the fall the fund will open an office in New York City. A town that saw a 300 percent jump in the number of newborns named Diana last fall is unlikely to balk at Princess of Wales keepsakes.


Yet the strain is beginning to show. "Sarah looks more tired, more drawn," says a royal watcher. "She has aged." Her three-hour commute twice a week from Lincolnshire -- where she lives with her husband, Neil, a farmer, and their three children -- to the fund's London office can't help. As for Fellowes, also the mother of three, her emotional state prevents her from pitching in. Still mourning deeply for Diana, who died before they could resolve the strain between them, Fellowes has kept a low profile.

The sisters are like-minded on one subject: making time for Di's boys. They've attended Harry's Ludgrove soccer games and visited William at Eton. And though the boys' summer schedule has left little time for their aunts (they turned down an invitation to vacation with them and their cousins in Cornwall in August), the sisters are there for their nephews, says the British Press Association's Archer, "at a time when they need friendship and support."

Thank you Martine!

Wow, great pics, and so many. And a nice story too.
If anyone else has some more info and or/pics... you're welcome!

I read Sarah attended a conservatoire in Vienna when she was younger. So, like her grandmother Ruth, Lady Fermoy she has to be a good pianist. I'm curious about info about her pianistic skills too...

Lady Jean 04-27-2004 09:15 AM

A few months there was a story that one of her children was very ill. Does anyone have an update, or the girl's name?

CathyEarnshaw 04-27-2004 10:00 AM

Actually, it was more than a few months ago. Emily was 19 at the time, and was dignosed with plasma cytoma, a cancer rare in young people. She underwent treatment, but the family has not given out further information.

Princess Diana's stepbrother found dead



Phnom Penh, , Apr. 28 (UPI) -- The step-brother of Britain's late Princess Diana has been found dead of an apparent drug overdose in the red-light district of Phnom Penh, Cambodia.

Police confirmed the body of Adam Shand Kydd, 49, was taken from a hostel late Tuesday, The Times of London reported.

An attending ambulance worker said the body showed signs of drug use.

"When I picked up the body I saw blue bruises on his arms and on his whole body. I assumed he overdosed on drugs," said Yim Mongul.

A Foreign Office spokeswoman in London said they received confirmation of Adam Shand Kydd's death Tuesday.

"We are in contact with the next of kin and providing assistance. We have no information about whether the death is being treated as suspicious," the spokeswoman said.

Shand Kydd is the son of British wallpaper tycoon Peter Shand Kydd, who went on to marry Diana's mother, Frances, in 1969, but they divorced 19 years later when he left her for another woman.

Lady Jean 04-30-2004 10:40 AM

This is interesting (and sad). I didn't know Shand Kydd had any children. So Diana had stepsisters and brothers on both sides, because Raine had children, too.

Looks like it was announced May 18, 2003, so it was earlier in 2003 than I thought.....
but my point in bringing up the illness was that this is another difficult time for Sarah to be going through.....since 1992 she has had the death of her father, death of her sister, the Burrell trial, a sick child, and now it looks like a serious illness with her mother.

Elspeth 05-03-2004 12:37 AM

I think there were three Shand Kydd children, and their mother had custody of them after the divorce.

A few years ago I read that Princess Diana's niece Emily (?) McCorquodale was ill with cancer. Has anyone heard how she is doing?

Thanks,

Jean 06-14-2004 10:28 PM

I heard about this too, I guess she's fine now. Haven't heard anything else about it in a while.

tiaraprin 06-15-2004 12:37 AM

I have heard nothing over here in the States--I hope she is well.

Lady Jean 06-15-2004 08:52 AM

It was announced in May 2003 that Emily had a rare cancer plasma cytoma...but I think she did a reading at her grandmother's funeral last week, so she must be doing reasonably well.

Sarah basics
 
Here are the Sarah's basics:

Lady Elizabeth Sarah Louise Spencer McCorquodale

Born: 19 March 1955 at Barrat Maternity Home, Northampton
Married: May 1980 to Neil McCorquodale ( born 1951 )
Child: Emily Jane McCorquodale
Born July 1983
Child: George McCorqudale
Born 1984
Child: Celia McCorqudale
Born 1989

CasiraghiTrio 09-08-2007 01:37 PM

Lady Sarah Spencer (*19 March 1955) and Neil Edmund McCorquodale, married on 17 MAY 1980, Great Brington, Northamptonshire. Neil was born in 1951 and served in the Household Cavalry.

Emily Jane McCorquodale*2 JULY 1983**In 2003, she was diagnosed with a rare cancer, plasmacytoma, near her spine. She underwent successful radiotherapy in Nottingham. She was educated at Queen Margaret’s School and Leeds University. She lives in London.

George Edmund McCorquodale*1984

Celia Rose McCorquodale*1989**She lives in London like her sister, to whom she is like a best friend.

Thanks for the info on Sarah's children.

It was great seeing the Spencer grand children at the Diana memorial. Sarah's son, George looks more like Harry's brother than William sometimes.

sirhon11234 09-11-2007 10:21 PM

She has a similar nose to Diana.

CasiraghiTrio 09-11-2007 10:48 PM

Yep, Emily is totally Spencer in her face, no doubt about that. :smile:

Here is a special picture of Lady Sarah and Lady Diana watching a cricket match on the pitch at Althorp.

Source information
The late (eighth) Earl Spencer, father of the subjects, was the photographer.
The photo from the photographer's private collection was reproduced in Andrew Morton's Diana: Her True Story with permission of the present (ninth) Earl Spencer.

Six pics of Lady Sarah on the ABACA website.
In the fifth picture, from Diana's funeral, you will see her daughter Emily walking behind her, next to Laura Fellowes who wears a brown suit. Then just behind Lord Fellowes, the boy or "Prince harry lookalike" with the red hair, is George McCorquodale, and next to him is his father, Neil.
I don't see Celia here. She was born in 1989 so at the time of Diana's funeral she must have been only eight. Perhaps her family thought she was too young for this ordeal.

In the fourth pic you see Sarah and George together with Earl Spencer at the funeral for Frances.

Here is Diana in 1981, pre-wedding during engagement, at Wimbledon with the Duchess of Gloucester and Lady Sarah McCorquodale. (Abaca)

thanks

CasiraghiTrio 10-07-2007 07:01 PM

Thanks for the rumor, smgaries. That sounds like Celia. I don't know her or know much about her but from what I can see, she seems like a very outgoing person. I have the impression she is much more outgoing than Emily. I think Emily is a social person, no doubt, but maybe is a bit more reserved than Celia, who knows? I see a strong physical resemblance between Celia and young Diana. Does anyone else see this? To me, there is something very similar about their expressions.

One more question, though: Celia's birth year is said to be 1989 almost everywhere, except on the Althorp site, where the family tree for the Spencers declares that Celia was born in 1990. It's not important but I just wonder about it.

smgaries 10-09-2007 12:50 AM

is it me that it seems CELIA MCCORQUODALE has the same characteristic as HARRY the mischevious fun loving look

George Edmund McCorquodale*1984**He attended Harrow School. (Smgaries, I wonder if you meant that he went to Harrow "like his forefathers McCorquodale" rather than Spencer because the Spencer males traditionally went to Eton, not Harrow.)

Celia Rose McCorquodale*1990**She attends Queen Margaret's School like her sister. Every source except the Althorp website says that Celia was born in 1989. The Spencer family tree (in PDF file on the Althorp site) says she was born in 1990.

the SPENCER forefathers either went to HARROW or ETON. If im not mistaken it was written in EARL SPENCERs book THE SPENCER....anywayz...here is some links for proof
John Spencer, 5th Earl Spencer - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
John Spencer, 3rd Earl Spencer - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
"Sir" George John SPENCER "2nd Earl Spencer"
Charles Spencer, 6th Earl Spencer - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Albert Spencer, 7th Earl Spencer - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

the SPENCER-CHURCHILL also either goes to HARROW or ETON

i just did a search under MCCORQUODALE and HARROW == it does seem that the forefathers of MCCORQUODALES did go to HARROW and NIEL MCCORQUODALE was educated there

iowabelle 10-09-2007 02:18 PM

I have always found it amusing that Sarah married Neil McCorquodale, a relative of her stepmother, Acid Raine, nee McCorquodale.

I have tried to figure out exactly how they are related. Do you happen to know it? Many sources say Neil is Raine's nephew, but I think that is wrong. At the most, they must be distant cousins, no? In some searches through the genealogy pages (i.e. Peerage, Worldroots) I wasn't able to find the connection.

iowabelle 10-09-2007 03:49 PM

I heard that Raine and Neil were cousins, of some sort.

And, of course, Barbara Cartland had to marry two McCorquodales, who also happened to be cousins. (What a confused family tree.)

CasiraghiTrio 10-09-2007 05:31 PM

The McCorquodales
 
Here we go.... I had another look at the genealogies, determined this time to figure the thing out. :smile:

Barbara Cartland married firstly Alexander George McCorquodale (son of Alexander Cowan McCorquodale) and had daughter Raine.

Barbara Cartland married secondly Hugh McCorquodale and had sons Ian and Glen.
*Hugh is the son of Harold McCorquodale, brother of Alexander Cowan McCorquodale. Therefore, Hugh and Alexander, Babs Cartland's two husbands, were first cousins.

Neil McCorquodale is the son of Alastair McCorquodale and Rosemary Sybil Turnor. Neil has one sibling, a sister, Sarah a/k/a Sally van Cutsem since her marriage to Geoffrey van Cutsem in 1969. Through Rosemary, Neil and Sally are great-grandchildren of the 13th Earl of Westmorland.

Neil's father, Kenneth McCorquodale was brother of Hugh McCorquodale being the eldest born (Hugh the third born) of Harold. So Neil is nephew of Babs Cartland's second husband, and Neil would be second cousin of Alexander Cowan McCorquodale. This makes Neil and Raine related twice.
One the one hand, they are third cousins. But Neil is first cousin of Raine's half-brothers. :biggrin:

The links will direct you to the Peerage website which guided me through this web of confusion.
*Geoffrey van Cutsem, I now learn, is brother of Hugh van Cutsem, who married Emilie and then sired the famous van Cutsem brothers.

If I get you right, the infamous van Cutsem-brothers are first cousins of the children of Lady Sarah and these are first cousins of William and Harry... Or you could say that Lady Sarah is both the aunt of William and Harry and the van Cutsem-boys....

georgiea 02-01-2008 03:55 PM

Rosemary and Geoffrey van Cutsem whose camp where they in Diana's or Charles'. If my memory is correct it was Prince Charles'. Did Diana have any sister free to love her and not aline with the BRF in any way? I don't think so.

Mermaid1962 02-01-2008 04:32 PM

Lady Sarah acted as Diana's lady-in-waiting on numerous occasions. I don't think she would do that if she aligned with the BRF against her sister.

Celia looks very Spencer, and more like Diana's siblings than Diana. She looks like a young Diana though too, but not so much like Diana when she was older.

Lady Sarah McCorquodale joined by hundreds at funeral of teenage soldier killed by rogue Afghan policeman | Mail Online

Hundreds of mourners packed into a church today to pay their respects to the youngest of five soldiers killed by a rogue Afghan policeman.
The streets outside St Peter's Church in Cleethorpes were also lined with crowds as the funeral of Guardsman Jimmy Major took place.
A piper played a lament as the Union flag-draped coffin was brought into the church.
The service was also attended by Princess Diana's sister, Lady Sarah McCorquodale, 54, wearing traditional dress for her role as High Sheriff of Lincolnshire.

silverstar 12-30-2009 10:38 PM

Sarah was as lovely as Diana in her younger days,
its easy to see just why the young Prince Charles was
attracted to her.
The loss of Diana must have been a terrible blow to
her and now her mother Frances has gone too.
but heres a picture of happier times....

Prince william arrives accompanied by his aunt, Lady Sarah McCorquodale, The High Sheriff of Lincolnshire (C), as they arrive at RAF Coningsby January 11, 2010 in Lincolnshire. During his visit to RAF Coningsby, the Prince got the opportunity to sit in the cockpit of a Typhoon FGR4. The Prince was also shown around the Gym Tots playgroup where he met the wives and girlfriends of serving personnel.

I think now we are a lot smart about the sun's damage to our skin. I hope Kitty Spencer wears suntan lotion because she lives in sun drench South Africa. :flowers:

I agree, she seems only a little tanned:

Thanks for those photos. Most of which I have never seen before.
In the first one, the sisters look so much alike.

How nice it was for Diana to have her sister as lady in waiting.
Her sister must miss her terribly.

What we would not all give if Diana could have just settled down
she would be here today.

Diana's niece and the royal send-up: Alcoholic-fuelled poses are a far cry from the Princess
Quote:

They are not the sort of poses her aunt Princess Diana would have dared to strike for the cameras. However, like the rest of today’s social networking generation, Celia McCorquodale is clearly not noted for her discretion. Celia, 21, has posted a wide range of pictures on her Facebook site.

Sarah was a really pretty girl especially with that beautiful red hair. But I must say that she was far to attractive for Prince Charles.

Thanks so much for posting these lovely photos. The sisters look like dead ringers for each other in the first one, even down to the same haircut but for the color. Sarah was indeed a beautiful young woman. I like the one at the airport where they're kissing each other. How Diana's family must miss her each day of their lives.

sirhon11234 05-20-2012 03:10 AM

Indeed. It wasn't just the death of a famous Princess. But that of a beloved mother, daughter, sister, and friend. I can't imagine losing a sibling at such a young age. I'm sure Diana's siblings treasure the memories they have of her.

Oh, that wasn't anything much, really.

I heard he was trying to cheer her, because she'd been dumped by Gerald Grosvenor (Current Duke of Westminster) and was taking it badly.
Neither was in love with the other, it was more of a friendship thing.

Rare Picture:
Sarah Spencer and her boyfriend at the time, HRH The Prince of Wales-
Royal Emerald

Frelinghighness 03-16-2014 09:39 PM

I remember the picture above, and it demonstrates how Sarah did suffer from an eating disorder also, anorexia.
I didn't realize however, how much shorter she was than Diana.

Lenora 03-17-2014 05:12 AM

But why does this photo demonstrate that she was anorexic?

My mother has always had such a type of body.

Of course, maybe I don't know her background,

I can't say with absolute certainty, but it's my understanding that she was recovering when she started spending time with the Prince of Wales and so wasn't at her thinnest.

Princess of Durham 06-10-2014 08:47 PM

I don't see anything in that picture that would suggest anorexia. She may indeed have faced that issue but in that picture it is not evident. I think people tend to fling around the term much too freely, JMO.

Lady Sarah has spoken publicly about her struggle with anorexia. IIRC she stated that for a while she lived on little more than vodka and cigarettes.

Has this wedding taken place yet?? Harry and George were close as children and seem to have remained fairly since. Would imagine you would see Harry attending but maybe the wedding managed to remain under the radar without press and paps. Guessing it could have taken place in South Africa without anyone being aware of it

I have no clue if the wedding has taken place. I haven't heard anything about it. A surprise to me. Perhaps someone on here knows more about it.

I just googled "McCorquodale Moore wedding" and came up with this, which looks legitimate:

Thanks for that

Interesting no personal guest pictures or mobile phones allowed. And no kids at wedding.

If anyone attends it will be Harry more likely than William - and even then its a push if he goes.

Mermaid1962 02-12-2016 03:24 PM

George's looks have really changed, perhaps because of weight gain. He and Harry used to look so much more alike.

PrincessofEurope 02-12-2016 05:33 PM

I hadn't realised that George was also based in South Africa until i read their wedding website.

Also, I hope Lady Sarah likes to ride the hunt with the band on live foxes.

She had some health issues around her upbringing, she had Anorexia, drank heavily as a teenager, and smokes, plus time outdoors a lot can add up, not to mention family drama.

CyrilVladisla 04-25-2016 07:32 PM

Numerous people assume Lady Sarah Spencer was born with the title of Her Ladyship. However this is not true. Sarah did not become Lady Sarah until 1975 when her father became the 8th Earl Spencer.

Duch_Luver_4ever 04-26-2016 12:45 AM

That's true, before that all the Spencer girls/young women were called "The Honorable" before their names, i believe.

Honeybees 04-26-2016 03:52 AM

If I don't mistake, Her Ladyship is a form of address (and not a title) used to address to Baronesses, Countesses and Marchionesses. So Her Ladyship isn't and has never been the proper form of address to Lady Sarah.

PrincessofEurope 07-26-2016 04:00 PM

It would appear Harry is spending the remainder of the summer doing conservation work in south africa - perfect timing for his cousin George's wedding in a weeks time.

CyrilVladisla 07-28-2016 10:15 PM

When Lady Sarah Spencer was dating Prince Charles, she learned that a mere weekend at Windsor Castle demanded a suitcase full of clothes. A typical day might require a riding habit for Her Ladyship for the morning, a day-dress for lunch, a skirt for tea, and a long dress for dinner.
