Family 2: Peter SHAND-KYDDE

Marriage
1969

NOTES: Mother of the Princess of Wales, formerly the Lady Diana Spencer. The wedding of Frances and her husband rivaled Elizabeth II. They were married in Westminster Abbey. Elizabeth and Philip were among the wedding guests. So were Elizabeth's mother and sister, three royal aunts and two cousins. In all there were over a thousand guests. After thirteen years and four children they were divorced. Frances was named as the other woman in a divorce action brought by Janet Shand Kydd. Diana's father then divorced her mother on the grounds of adultery and there was a bitter battle for the custody of the children, which the father won. Frances married the wealthy Peter Shand Kydd and retreated with him to an isolated part of Scotland. Diana was heart-broken and her tendency to bite her nails stems from that time. There was a further family upset later when Diana's father became involved with the woman who is now her stepmother, the flamboyant Countess of Dartmouth, daughter of that writer of so many love stories, Barbara Cartland. The Earl of Dartmouth divorced his countess, and Diana's father married her. Diana's two elder sisters have never really taken to their stepmother. Diana herself is more tolerant while still remaining close and loyal to her real mother. The divorce became absolute in 1969 after being separated since 1967.
