Four months after their marriage, her husband was killed in action while serving in World War II. Her husband's younger brother Lord Andrew Cavendish, married to Deborah Mitford of the famous Mitford sisters, thus became the heir apparent to the dukedom. Popular on the London social circuit and admired by many for her high spirits, Kathleen eventually became romantically involved with Peter Wentworth-Fitzwilliam, 8th Earl Fitzwilliam. The couple planned to wed after Lord Fitzwilliam's divorce; however, while on a trip to the south of France, both were killed as the result of an airplane crash in Saint-Bauzile, Ardèche, France. Only Kathleen's father represented the family at her funeral. Her mother did not attend and, allegedly, discouraged her daughter's siblings from attending as well.
