Lord Bath's Tenant Poisoned

Alexander George Thynn, 7th Marquess of Bath (also known as Lord Bath) should keep a closer eye on his tenants, rather than his "wifelets".

A Grand Pile

Imagine that you’re next in line to inherit the family seat. It’s something you’ve dreamt about for years and now that day has finally arrived. Now, imagine your horror when you find out that twenty of the grand estate’s thirty rooms need to be torn out and refurbished, the staff hasn’t been paid in three months, and the great pile costs ₤10,000 a month to run. Ah, such is the plight of families around Europe each and every year.

Heir To The 6th Baron Hindlip Fined For Smuggling Drugs In A Condom

Yes, you read the headline correctly.

Apparently, the future 7th Baron Hindlip, The Honorable Henry William Allsopp, was found guilty of trying to smuggle 16.39 grams of cannabis resin into the Bermuda. After being stopped by customs officials at the airport in Bermuda, Henry was discovered to a condom tied to his penis which contained the cannabis resin. Henry was fined $3,000 for his offense.

What a dumb ass. But hey, we'll give him points for originality. Hey, at least he didn't try to smuggle it into the American Embassy. Now that's stupid.

Lord Frederick Windsor Finally Weds At Hampton Court Palace

Today, Lord Frederick Windsor, the son of the Prince of Kent, married Sophie Winkleman at Hampton Court Palace's Chapel Royal. Congratulations! Sophie will now be styled as The Lady Frederick Windsor.

We've been hearing that the wedding has been fraught with drama including (but not limited to) the "unrefined" guest list, wedding gift list, and the absence of senior members of the royal family. Was Princess Pushy a reason? She isn't exactly a favorite amongst her extended family. Thankfully, the couple turned down a six figure sum to have their wedding pictures published in a tacky glossy magazine. It seems that Lord Frederick erred on the side of caution after the last royal wedding...

As many senior member of the royal family weren't in attendance, but some of the distinguished guests included: Princess Eugenie, Lady Annabel Goldsmith, and Lady Gabriella Windsor.

The BBC is reporting that the couple will leave the UK tomorrow for their new life in Los Angeles. We hope the couple will have a lifetime of happiness, but with Princess Pushy as a mother-in-law, we can see why Sophia & Freddie are moving 6,000 miles away...
