Kathleen Kennedy, sister of President John F Kennedy

https://en.m.wikipedia.or...Marchioness_of_Hartington


A love match with tragic endings for both.  The Hartingtons requested her body be buried on their estates when Rose Kennedy refused to have her body brought back to the States.  Rose Kennedy was a real piece of work, but that’s a story for another day.

She was nowhere near as bad as her husband.

I always thought they were rather a matched set. Equally awful in different ways. Joe forced himself on his daughter's friends, but Rose knew what went on and looked the other way.

I rather admire Kathleen, because of all the children, she broke away from the family and lived her own life, short though it was.

When I went to the house tour for Marble House in Newport, the docent kept referring to Consuelo as the Duchess of Manchester. After the third time (and the Duke and I were the only ones on tour) I mentioned that she had been the Duchess of Marlborough, not Manchester. The docent took some convincing that it was Consuelo Yznaga who was the American Duchess of Manchester.
