- Alexander Montagu, Duke of Manchester, faces trial over burglary charges

- Previously married to Marion Stoner and Wendy Burford at the same time
- He was arrested and bailed in Las Vegas and will stand trial in September
When, just a few days ago, Norma Lopez was woken at 2am by a burly, shirtless man prowling around the hallway of her Las Vegas home, she immediately called the police.
In little doubt there was a burglary in progress, she was directed to hide in the bathroom – and did as she was told.
She could scarcely have known, but this was no mere break-in, but the latest tawdry instalment in the long-running soap opera of Britain’s most bizarre – and notorious – branch of the aristocracy.
When police arrested the intruder, they discovered he was Alexander Charles David Drogo Montagu, the 13th Duke of Manchester. MORE
