Elizabeth Maxwell was overlooked in her memoirs as a result of her daughter I wrote that it was. 3 Her she said to her: "Mummy, I exist."
"I was devastated," she wrote. "And from that day on, we all worked hard with her and made a fuss that made her spoiled. Only one of my children can really say."
The family lived in Hedington Hill Hall, a huge mansion overlooking the city of Oxford, England, where celebrities, politicians and media ancestors regularly held gorgeous parties.
