Maybe I’ve been here before

Favourite tidbit in Elizabeth, The Queen Mother, to date:

Raymond de Trafford… fell for Alice de Janzé, described as ‘a young American man eater who played with lion cubs and was said to look like a “wicked Madonna” … in 1927 de Trafford went to Paris to inform Alice that, as a strict Catholic, he could not marry her.  She came to his railway compartment at the Gare du Nord, shot first him and then herself.  Neither died.  They married in 1932.

I knew I’d love this book! [Actually, there’s no happy ending to that story – she was a crazy b!tch!  But interesting.]

Alice and Fred
