Royal Baby: British aristocracy celebrates arrival of newborn linked to Royal Family

Marina Hanbury, the Countess of Durham, shared the first public picture of her son Arthur on the Instagram account of the lavish Cetinale estate. Posing barefoot under the Italian sun in her villa in Siena, the Countess said: “Wearing my Villa Cetinale robe with my newborn son, Arthur. Both perfect!” 

Little Arthur can be seen wrapped in his mother’s arms as he appears to be fast asleep in a white shirt.

The Countess is an ex-model who has also worked as a parliamentary assistant to Kate Hoey until 2010.

A few months after leaving her post, she married Edward Lambton, the 7th Earl of Durham. 

Earl Lambton is linked to the British Royal Family as his aunt was Freda Dudley Ward, Edward VIII’s last lover before he met American socialite Wallis Simpson.

The Earl and Countess’ new addition to the family has joined three siblings.

Little Arthur will surely be much loved by Lady Stella Rose Lambton, born in late 2011, the Hon. Claud Timothy Lambton, born in 2015 and Lady Acony Belle Lambton, who is two years old.

Earl Lambton stood for the Eurosceptic Referendum Part in the 1997 in his father’s former constituency, Berwick-upon-Tweed, gaining 3.4 percent of the votes.

However, he is better known for his musical career, being a member of the band Pearl, TN.

For this reason, the Earl is better known to the public as Ned Lambton.

Before his nuptials with the Countess, the Earl had already been married twice.

He first tied the knot in 1983 with Christabel Mary McEwen, with whom had one child.

Later, in 1995, he married Anglo-Irish aristocrat Catherine FitzGerald.

The Cetinale estate where the Durhams are spending this summer of lockdown attracted the interest of royal fans exactly one year ago. 

In August 2019 Sarah Ferguson is believed to have visited the romantic Villa Cetinale, considered one of the most desirable wedding venues in Tuscany.

The Duchess of York’s chauffeur published a relaxed photograph of himself and his employer on his Instagram account and set the 17th-century Baroque residence as their location.

On top of tagging the Villa itself in the picture, the chauffeur also added American Brenda Babcock and a company called Iles Events, both specialised in destination weddings in Tuscany. 

These two clues sparked rumours Sarah, also known as Fergie by fans and family, were on the hunt for a wedding location for his daughter Beatrice.

Beatrice and her now-husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi announced their intention to tie the knot a month later, in September.

After having their wedding plans disrupted by the coronavirus pandemic, they eventually got married in front of just a handful of loved ones on July 17 at the All Saints Chapel in Windsor.
