A very fine lady who used her advantages for the great benefit of others and in particular the hospice movement. Her husband was a brave man.

Miserere mei, Deus: secundum magnam misericordiam tuam. Glora Patri, et Filii, et Spiritui Sancti.

She and her husband chose not to live in Arundel Castle because it was "too grand". Her husband did not expect to become the Duke but inherited from his heirless cousin and didn't like the castle much.

Their son, the current Duke, and family moved into Arundel castle after the death of the old Duke.
