She was a family friend of Royalty at a time when the media began to take more notice of people's private lives than they had previously. I think that's it tbh.

She was an 'IT' girl In other words a socialite . did nothing but appear at events for the rich and famous. Well connected as said above. Too fond of cocaine and booze. The tumour was benign so they are not sure what killed her yet. A sad waste of a privileged life

I just read his obituary on the BBC. I didn't realize he had become a priest. I loved his music too. RIP Peter.
