In 2011 William Cross, the author of the best selling biography "The Life and Secrets of Almina Carnarvon"  disclosed the many hidden truths about the 5th Countess of Carnarvon and her family


Now in a follow-up title  " Catherine and Tilly : Porchey Carnarvon's Two Duped Wives" Cross will provide the compelling story of the two woman who were lured into marriage by Almina's only son, the  outrageous Henry, 6th Earl of Carnarvon, dubbed 'Randy Carnarvon'


Among the many amazing facts the book will explain the following and much more 


The quaint background and social standing of Catherine and Tilly 


The family secrets of these two women


How Porchey lured Catherine and Tilly into marriage but continued countless other carnal affairs 


The identity of the high placed admirers of Catherine and Tilly who tried to save them from self-harm and ruin 


The tangled relationship Countess Almina had with her son and two daughters in law


The years of sorrow and anguish for Catherine and Tilly littered with tragedy


Using previously unpublished facts and testimony including the startling recollections of several people who knew Almina,  Porchey, Catherine and Tilly, Cross spills the beans in a highly controversial narrative that will challenge any incomplete, romantised and inaccurate stories of  Porchey's wives Catherine Wendell and Tilly Losch    


Porchey was a cad but these two girls were certainly no angels


This is another book to rock the rafters at Highclere Castle and dent the old world Establishment


A divorcee, ( she was previously married to the artist Edward James ) Tilly Losch ( pictured above ) married Porchey Carnarvon in 1939 and divorced him in 1947.    Tilly died in New York on Christmas Eve of 1975.
