A beautiful, witty woman, and a clever writer, Lady Desborough, who has been appointed one of the Ladies of the Bedchamber by Queen Mary, is very popular in society. At Taplow Court, Maidenhead, she has entertained Royalty, and the greatest statesmen, politicians, soldiers, sailors, and men of letters of our time. Her marriage to Lord Desborough-then Mr. Willie Grenf ell - the "Admirable Crichton" of sport, took place in 1887, her husband being raised to the peerage some years later. Lady Des-borough's parents were the Hon. Julian and Lady Adine Fane. They died young, and their daughter was brought up by her uncle and aunt, Earl and Countess Cowper. Lady Desborough still retains much of the grace and beauty of her early youth, although she is the mother of five children, the eldest of whom is twenty-three years of age. Her ladyship has contributed much to the magazines, and a very witty article by her, entitled "Hints to Eton Parents," appeared in a little paper published at Eton School.
