An old Tatler piece about British men falling for American women

Consuelo Vanderbilt (aka the Duchess of Marlborough) and Winston Churchill, at Blenheim

There’s been a flurry of Twitter activity this week over a piece I wrote for Tatler a couple of years ago, about British men falling for American women. ‘Twas ever thus, is the gist of my piece really. It’s only gone online now because Prince Harry’s engaged.

I put a joke about Britain ‘giving’ America its liberty back in there and I also mentioned the words ‘blow’ and ‘job’ consecutively which has apparently upset today’s Mary Whitehouses. So sorry if this has caused anyone to reach for the smelling salts.

It’s HERE if you want to read it.
