“The History of Walton Hall and its Scandal” by Elizabeth, Lady Hamilton

Friday 7th September, 8 pm, Lighthorne Village Hall

In 1866, Sir Charles Mordaunt brought his young bride, Harriet Moncreiffe, back to his Warwickshire mansion, Walton Hall. She was part of the Prince of Wales’ infamous set, and when she had a baby there were several contenders for fatherhood. The ensuing trial, involving the Prince himself, became a scandal.

Lady Hamilton of Walton Hall, the President of the Warwickshire Local History Society, is the author of a book on the scandal. Her talk is sure to be very entertaining.
