I am not attacking but being attacked here. I never told people to shut up. People should respect other people's views. Isn't it ? Anyway one day I will publish what I learn from others, but I am pretty sure it may not please everybody. But after all that is what democrasy is all about ? As Marlene did not say I was lying but need hard evidence. But in terms of hard evidence it may be difficult, unless the lover tells it. Yet even then it may not be enough, after all it all happen behind closed doors.

Eric: You are not being attacked, you are being admonished about not being factual. Plenty of writers accept gossip as fact, and you are certainly welcome to follow their lead and publish gossip, and but has nothing at all to do with democracy. If you were stating opinions, such as in my opinion, the Marchioness was an xyz, there might be some to agree and disagree, but that would involve opinion.

Marlene is an historian, and she was telling you not to state gossip or opinions as fact. I agree with that. Be clear about what you are stating is all I have been saying.

Also, Svetabel is a moderator, and when she admonishes posters about staying on topic, we expect her rulings to be respected just as if the FA or me had said it. So, kindly give it a rest if it is not about Nada, and if you are stating an opinion or gossip, kindly label it as such.

According To Royal writer Robert Golden, Nada was still quite a brassy creature in her old age. I guess that must be her style.

As I recall, Gloria Vanderbilt jr may have mentioned Nada and her mother in her autobiography, the first one, Once upon a time- I know it was either in that book or it was in her second book Black Knight, White Knight, or maybe both that she mentioned her mother and Nada. I should look up again what she had to say about her mother and Nada.

I think Nada and Gloria were at least close friends. I don't think there is a biography of the Morgan sisters published yet...

From left to right:
Nada, Marchioness of Milford Haven, the Countess of Airlie, Lady Zia Wernher and George, 2nd Marquess of Milford Haven at the State Opening of Parliament, 15th January,1924.  Nada and Lady Airlie are attempting to wear their ancestral tiaras in the fashionable manner, low on the brow, in the style that the fashionable bandeau tiaras were meant to be worn; they both have shingled hair as well.  Zia looks quizically through a lorgnette and George looks dapper in morning coat, top hat, striped trousers and spats over his shoes.......

Nada's fur coat is very luxurious and she is wearing the Bolin ruby and diamond tiara.......

Martyn had posted hed the photo some time back, including the Countess of Airlie (DIL of QM's Countess of Airlie?). I believe the photo comes from one of Robert Golden's books?

There was a separate thread on George so I merged the two and re-named it.

The sisters wrote their autobiography "Double Exposure".

I wonder if the 'mobile' is actually a cigarette case.
