Mary Spencer-Churchill, Lady Soames

I remember once lunching with my mother at Rutland Gate and being somewhat bewildered by the sheer numbers of Mitfords of all ages, all of whom seemed to speak at once!  It was sad for me that I was not destined to ‘discover’ my matching-in-age cousins Decca and Debo until over forty years later. – Mary Soames, extracted from A Daughter’s Tale: The Memoir of Winston and Clementine Churchill’s Youngest Child.
