  1. I really liked Sir Angus. He was a proud man who refused an earldom when it was offered to him upon marrying Princess Alexandra. It was so unfortunate that he was caught up in a scandal that was not his doing, but that blighted his career and caused him to have an early retirement. I thought that was very unfortunate. He did recover later on, to where he was very much appreciated for his charity work. No doubt he is still greatly missed by Princess Alexandra and his children- even Marina.
