A nice sketch of Lady Iris
This comes from 1945. Although Lady Iris was separated from her husband, Hamilton O'Malley, a captain in the Irish Guards, she continued to use her married name until 1949, when she resumed her maiden name by Deed Poll. The couple's marriage ended shortly after the wedding ceremony. Lady Iris' egregious behavior led to her being shunned by her own family. She was not permitted to attend her grandmother, Princess Beatrice's funeral.
