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.
