Diana & Jemima - Are They Sisters

Were Diana and Jemima sisters?

Jemima and Diana

Imran-Khan-with-Prince-Charles
Jemima and Diana – sisters?

Now we really have heard it all – Princess Diana and Jemima Khan were sisters. Yes, that’s the hot news igniting bushfires all over Australia with the ‘revelation’ in New Idea magazine this week that both women were fathered by swashbuckling tycoon Sir James Goldsmith.

In the case of Jemima, there is no dispute. Born on January 30, 1974, she is acknowledged as being the daughter of Sir ‘Jams’ and his amply bosomed wife Lady Annabel. In fact, she’s the spitting image of her dad.

But Diana? The magazine quotes an ‘aristocratic source’ as saying that at the time of her conception, her mother Frances Shand Kydd – then Viscountess Althorp – was going through a ‘very bad patch’ in her marriage to Johnnie Spencer (or Viscount Althorp as he was then).

The source is quoted as saying: ‘Her husband was drinking heavily and was beastly to her. She knew James Goldsmith and the rumour was that they had a brief fling. At that time, it’s fair to say Goldsmith was a sex maniac.’

Mistresses

Well, that could be said of most other times in his life, too. Goldsmith it was who coined the phrase ‘When you marry your mistress you create a job vacancy’, and he lived up to the expectations of that suave statement.

There were three marriages for James and lots of mistresses. He came from a red-blooded school of playboys who had no idea what political correctness meant: he took what he wanted, how he wanted, when he wanted.

But – Sir ‘Jams’ and Di’s mother Frances? Let us examine the facts…

The background

The difficulty for rumourmongers is that at the time of Diana’s conception, in October 1960, the lives of her mother and James Goldsmith could not have been more different and they could hardly have lived farther apart.

During the early months of the year, Frances, living a rural existence at Park House, Sandringham, was heavily pregnant with her third child, a boy.

When she gave birth, the child was taken from her and she never saw him again: John Spencer, as he was named, died 11 hours after delivery. The experience shattered the 24-year-old woman, who was already deeply religious.

Miscarriage

‘She barely left the house after that,’ I am told by someone who knew her. ‘Despite the terrible shock she underwent, she was keenly aware that her husband expected her to produce a son and heir.’

To Johnnie Spencer, dynasty was everything. And Frances knew it – no matter where she turned, she was reminded of the Spencer family’s 200-year-old peerage and her responsibility to further the line.

As soon as possible, the Althorps resumed marital relations and, within weeks, Frances was pregnant again. ‘She must have been in a very sorry state, still mourning the loss of her son, and now in the family way again,’ said one confidante. ‘But, being the person she was, she was determined to see it through.’

Not surprisingly, given her fragile emotional and mental condition, the pregnancy came to nothing. Within weeks, Frances suffered a miscarriage, sending her already-weakened morale tumbling even lower.

To become pregnant a third time within the space of a year was both foolhardy and, in a sense, miraculous – but at least from this last effort a healthy child, Diana, was born.

Depression

‘During that year, 1960, Frances barely left Norfolk,’ one of her close friends told me. ‘She was depressed, wrapped up in herself, constantly worried that she had let her husband down, desperate to become pregnant once more.’

Compare this picture of rural gloom with James Goldsmith’s sunsplashed life.

He was already the father of two children (Isabel, by his first wife, the Bolivian heiress Isabel Patino who died in childbirth, and Manes, his son by his secretary and mistress Ginette Lery), and he was leading a peripatetic, glamorous life between Paris, London and the Cote d’Azur.

After leaving Eton, he had set himself the task of becoming a rich man, using the pharmaceutical industry as his vehicle – developing medicines and selling on the companies.

Playboy lifestyle

Now James was on a roll, living in a suite at the Ritz while in London and with Ginette Lery when in Paris. ‘(Then) there were the attractions of young and pretty girls,’ his biographer Geoffrey Wansell wrote. ‘James had never lost his appetite for beautiful girls and he had no intention of concealing it.’

And when James wasn’t womanising, travelling or tycooning, he was gambling at London’s Clermont Club.

In the month when Frances became pregnant with Diana, James was shuttling back and forth from Paris to London.

Aged 27, he was furiously in pursuit of a deal to buy a chain of 28 pharmacies while going through a tumultuous time with his French companies, being forced to defend the very serious accusation that he was importing sub-standard medicines.

And he was completing arrangements to move into a house in London’s Regent’s Park with Ginette, bringing Isabel and Manes to live with them.

Meanwhile, that winter, Frances was 120 miles and a whole lifestyle away, grimly trying to get pregnant again.

Of course, there’s nothing to have stopped one or other party from travelling those 120 miles, casually meeting for the first time, finding each other attractive and ending up in bed for a fling. But where?

Johnnie Spencer always came home for his tea at Park House and Ginette Lery had been installed by James in London. Could it be, perchance, the starcrossed lovers met on a train?

But here is the crucial thing – Frances just wasn’t James’s type. Thin, nervy and no great flirt, she had none of the things that appealed to the swashbuckling financier.

‘What he liked was the exotic, the sexy, the dangerous, the cosmopolitan,’ said a friend who knew them both. ‘She was none of those things. It wouldn’t surprise me if the only two men Frances ever went to bed with were Johnnie Spencer and her second husband Peter Shand Kydd. She just wasn’t like that.’

Rumours

James, on the other hand, was. Even so, is this a secret which – according to the Australian magazine – has been whispered about in aristocratic and royal circles for the past 43 years?

Not according to those I know in both camps. ‘A clear case of one too many tinnies,’ I was told by my aristocratic source. ‘It’s the Shand Kydd connection that has prompted this talk.

‘James’s big friend – along with Lord Lucan, Mark Birley and John Aspinall – was Bill Shand Kydd. It was Bill who was the last person to see Lucan alive after he murdered his nanny in 1974.

It was Peter Shand Kydd – Bill’s brother – who later married Frances. That’s as close as the relationship went – James was Frances’s brother-inlaw’s best friend.’

But even this doesn’t work, since Frances did not meet Peter – or his brother, or his brother’s best friend James – until three years after Diana’s birth.

Which leaves the ‘respected’ New Idea magazine with a scoop all of its own.

The problem with the Aussies is that, having no royal family of their own, they believe anything that’s said about ours. Can you blame them, though? What comes out of Buckingham Palace and Clarence House these days you couldn’t make up.

Diana’s half-sister Jemima?

Jun 12, 2007, 12:20 GMT

Princess Diana may have been the half-sister of heiress Jemima Khan, is has been revealed.

In Tina Brown’s new book ‘The Diana Chronicles’ the author claims the princess’ mother Frances Shand Kydd had a long-running affair with Jemima’s father Sir James Goldsmith during her marriage to Earl Spencer.

She suggests Diana – who was born in 1961 – may have been Goldsmith’s love child and not Spencer’s daughter.

But the writer – who is said to have received a £1 million advance from publishers for the controversial book – could not prove the story.

Goldsmith’s daughter Jemima, 33, divorced cricket ace Imran Khan in 2004 after nine yeas of marriage and went on to date actor Hugh Grant, but split from him earlier this year.

Brown’s book – published next week – also claims Diana was in love with a Pakistani heart surgeon named Hasnat Khan.

She writes the princess did not love Dodi Al Fayed – with whom she was killed in the Paris car crash in August 1997 – but conducted the romance out of retaliation against the British Royal Family.
