Laura, Duchess of Manchester, and her non-relationship with the truth.



Sigh.  Laura is still ranting, publishing lies about Alex's first marriage to Marion Stoner Montagu on her blog.  This entry was made November 1, 2015. Laura should find another hobby and accept that she and Alex will never be respectable. 

See Post on The British Royals Message Board

The marriage to Marion Stoner took place.  It was legal and binding.  Marion fled after Alex attempted to shoot her with a spear gun after only a few weeks but no divorce was ever filed for or granted until 1996 three years after Alex had fraudulently married Wendy Buford in Orange County, California.

In 1984, because she was being threatened and stalked by Alex, Marion filed papers for a legal separation against her husband, who according to her testimony,  had abused her disabled daughter as well as abusing her.

Details, including the whole court transcript, are available on this site.   See legal papers at links below:

Because his uncle, then the Duke of Manchester, Sidney Arthur Robin George Drogo Montagu, 11th Duke of Manchester was still living and could have had a child with his wife, Alex was not considered likely to succeed to the title.  His father,Angus Charles Drogo Montagu succeeded to the title of 12th Duke of Manchester upon the death of his brother

on June 5, 1985 while Alex was facing criminal charges in Australia.  For more see Time Line.

In 1992 Alex moved in on Wendy so he could stop sofa surfing and to evade deportation.  If there is a victim in this entire story it is Wendy and her two children.   Having endured years of trauma, abuse and lies, Wendy discovered they had never been legally married after a lengthy divorce during which Alex tried to extract support from her and take the children from her in 2007 because each child was receiving support from the Manchester Trust. 

At his mother's insistence Alex finally signed divorce papers three years after he and Wendy were married in 1993.

Another lost opportunity for Alexander, 13th Duke of Manchester

 From: What about an Australian republic now?

The quote below is from the article discussing the possibility of an Australian Republic, an issue which sharply divides that nation.  It seems likely the author has visited this site. 



"I’ve got my own proposal. We have a republic (so the republicans are happy) but the ceremonial job of President (to replace the Governor-General) should be an Australian-born citizen who also has an inherited noble title – and there are quite a few of them. That way the monarchists will be happy – well, less unhappy – with the republic idea because they can still bow to the President and call him “Your Grace” or “My Lord” or whatever salutation is appropriate for the title.

Our most senior noble is Alexander Charles David Drogo Montagu, the 13th Duke of Manchester who was born in Australia in 1962 but has lived most of his life in the USA. He is, and has been, a cad and a scoundrel, marrying three times and accused, among other things, of bigamy, fraud and passing dud cheques. He has served jail time in the USA and once was expelled from Canada. He admits to being flat broke.

His younger brother, Lord Kimble Montagu, a Monash University academic, will inherit the title because the Duke’s children are technically illegitimate because of his bigamy. So, perhaps not His Grace the Duke for President."  

Her Grace, Laura, Duchess of Manchester, must be really annoyed.  What an opportunity - lost.
