He Names a Viscount Petersham and an Alan Lowe!

William Henry Leicester Stanhope, Viscount Petersham, lives at the family's Scottish estate, Crimonmogate.

His sister is Serena Armstrong-Jones, Viscountess Linley (née Hon. Serena Alleyne Stanhope) who is married to David Armstrong-Jones, Viscount Linley, nephew of Queen Elizabeth II.

In Hindsight  one must ask was Ireland the Safest Place to go to escape the Viscount?

Petersham feels the crunch...

His funeral  was one of the grandest wakes seen in Ireland, as clan chiefs and aristocrats descended on Adare, Co Limerick, to pay their respects to the hunting-mad Earl of Harrington.

But for Viscount Petersham, whose daughter Serena is married to the Queen's carpenter nephew Viscount Linley, the accession to his father Bill's title coincides with an alarming nosedive in the family's finances.

Their fortune is based around substantial property holdings, mainly in South Kensington. But the combination of the global credit crunch and the collapse in London property prices have hammered the family portfolio, which includes a large chunk of affluent Stanhope Gardens.

The full extent of their loss is due to be illustrated in this Sunday's Rich List. It is set to show that Petersham has suffered more than any other of the great aristocratic property and landowners. 

Dwindling fortune: Viscount and Viscountess Petersham

Dwindling fortune: Viscount and Viscountess Petersham

Last year, Charles Petersham, 63  -  known to friends as Pete  -  was estimated to be worth £210million. But, I understand, his fortune has now been written down by Rich List author Philip Beresford to just £40million.

Petersham, who is divorced from Serena's mother Jinny Freeman  -  he has been married to the Earl of Suffolk's ex-wife Anita for 25 years  -  is a reclusive figure.

As I revealed, he cannily sold his much-loved Spanish finca to multimillionaire bookmaker Victor Chandler for £7.5million just before the property crash. He is now thought to spend much of his time in France.

His son-in-law, David Linley, has had his own financial headaches.

In 2006, Linley and his sister Lady Sarah Chatto sold the jewellery belonging to their mother, Princess Margaret, raising £14 million, to help pay off death duties.

The elevation of Serena's father means that as the daughter of an earl she now 'ranks' alongside her husband and can use her full name  -  Lady Serena Linley  -  at court.
