"And how lucky was the Duke of Argyle?!"

"Were it not for imagination a man would be as happy in arms of a chambermaid as of a duchess."

(Dr. Johnson)

Actually, DD, this is the Duchess of Sutherland. The famous picture of the Duchess of Argyle is a photograph featuring the "headless man" whom the hapless Lord Denning was called upon to identify.

And the Duke of Argyle was not a lucky man at all, if his divorce lawyer is to be believed.
