I think was Leonida unequal birth to Kyril (which was arguable) that disqualify her and her offspring from the family law. Baby Bee's reason for not receiving Leonida was due to her alleged bad reputation in Spain.

This came from a Spanish writer who have information on Baby Bee & her family. He also gave information on the first Spanish biography on her. Both Leonida and her brother were involved with shady people in Spain.

Yes. I have a copy of it and the author is a woman name Ana something. She had help from the descendents of Baby Bee and other British and Spanish Royal authors. It has quite a few tidbits on Ducky, Kyrill and Vladimir.

Why was Victoria Melita so shocked that Kirill betrayed her?
Who was it? Man or woman? Any name mentioned?
Most men are unfaithful, especially russian Grand Dukes..
I can't understand that VM made her last years so much misery because of that.

That's what I thought.
A Lady XY would not get this destructive reaction from MV.
With exception of a close family member or friend. (I had her sister Sandra in mind)

It's curious that both of MV's husbands ended in bed with men...
That's just embarrassing for her.

The source was "Fatal Passion" the only full length biography on Ducky. However I do got other independent sources confirming that it was a man. It does make sense as her argument for leaving Ernie was that he was gay and did not love her (as she wanted to be loved). Her hard fought battle end up with her husband with a man. That would truly kill her. Ducky's pride would not let her forgive the her husband, but she also couldn't forgive herself for making that mistake. As Missy wrote "She was the most unforgiving of us all". No it could not be Sandra since Ducky was the one sister that she respects and fears.
