A Newspaper Clipping March 23, 2016

I found an old address book and in it was a newspaper clipping from the Court and Personal column of The Times.  In this particular clipping it starts out with “The Prime Minister Mr. Wilson is expected to attend the wedding in London today of Lady Rachel Pakenham,25, third daughter of the Earl of Longford…….. ”      Read down a little bit and you read about the Queen Mother.  And then da da there’s the McKee-Miller  The engagement is announced etc       Fun to find that clipping 50 years later.  I don’t know how we made it to The Times – we certainly aren’t Sir Ian and Lady Janet.  But in my genealogy there are a few Lady Janets way back in time so maybe I can pretend I carry the mantle.
