In June 1999, Robert Fellowes was granted a Life Peerage as Baron Fellowes, of Shotesham in the County of Norfolk, after first being knighted as Sir Robert Fellowes.
More DetailsHide DetailsLord and Lady Fellowes have three children, who all bear the style of "The Honourable" since June 1999 as the children of a Life Peer:
These children are first cousins of Prince William and Prince Harry on the maternal side, and according to some news reports, are close friends of their Royal cousins.
Lady Diana Spencer came up to Scotland in the summer of 1980 to help her sister with her newborn daughter Laura Jane, and during that time, was allegedly courted by the Prince of Wales.
More DetailsHide DetailsLady Fellowes is the only member of the Spencer family who has never spoken to the media about the death of Diana or her life. After Diana's death, conflicting views about the two sisters' relationship have been voiced by different people. Diana's butler Paul Burrell stated that the relationship was strained because of Lord Fellowes's position as secretary to the Queen and that by the time of Diana's death they had not even spoken in a number of years. On the other hand, Diana's childhood nanny, Mary Clarke, author of memoirs about the nanny's experience raising Diana and her three Spencer siblings, stated that the relations between the Baroness and Diana were not as bitter as Burrell and others have said or assumed. It is not clear when their relationship deteriorated (if it did), but the sisters were neighbours on the Kensington Palace estate, with Diana living at Numbers 8 and 9, and Lady Fellowes living at a house called the Old Barracks.
In March 1978, Jane married her distant relation Robert Fellowes (b. 1941), then assistant private secretary to the Queen.
More DetailsHide DetailsDuring the ceremony at Westminster Abbey, Jane's sister Diana was a bridesmaid. Photos of Diana as her sister's bridesmaid can be seen at theroyalpost.com/2012/04/16/royal-flower-girls-bridesmaids-page-boys-part-two/ and in many books about the life of Diana, Princess of Wales.
Her parents married in 1954 but divorced in 1969.
More DetailsHide DetailsShe has always used her middle name of Jane (just as her elder sister also uses one of her middle names). One of Jane's godparents is Prince Edward, Duke of Kent.
She was a bridesmaid at his 1961 wedding to Katharine Worsley.
More DetailsHide DetailsLike her sisters, Lady Fellowes was educated at West Heath boarding school near Sevenoaks in Kent. Sources say she was an excellent student, achieving the status of school Prefect and passing a good number of A-level exams. To paraphrase Andrew Morton, Lady Fellowes acquired a "hatful" of O-level and A-level exams. Her successful exams suggest that she is the most academically gifted of the three sisters.
