Short biography
Loelia, Duchess of Westminster, née Ponsonby, was a daughter of Sir Frederick Ponsonby and his wife Victoria. She was brought up at St. James's Palace, where her father served as a courtier to British royalty, and at Park House, Sandringham and Birkhall. She was considered one of the "Bright Young Things" of the 1920s. In 1930, she married the vastly wealthy Hugh Grosvenor, 2nd Duke of Westminster. Their union was dissolved in 1947 after years of separation. Afterwards she busied herself with needlework and gardening, and worked in the 1950s as a feature editor for House & Garden magazine. In 1969, she remarried to Sir Martin Lindsay, 1st Baronet, a polar explorer and politician. Her memoirs, published in 1981, were entitled Grace and Favor: The Memoirs of Loelia, Duchess of Westminster.
