The woman the Queen's cousin abandoned his wife for

The reason the Queen's cousin, Lord Brabourne, left his wife of 30 years to start a new life in the Caribbean has been revealed.

Daily Mail columnist Richard Kay says that Lord Brabourne has fallen in love with 57-year-old Bahamian beauty Jeannie McWeeny.

The new couple have known each other for many years, as the 62-year-old Lord often spends his winters on the tiny Windermere Island in the Bahamas.

The pair are, according to a friend, "very content together."

They only became close after Jeannie's husband, baronet Sir Nicholas Nuttall, died at the age of 73 three years ago.

Lord Brabourne is a good friend of Prince Charles and occupied residence Broadlands - a 60-room mansion set in 5,000 acres in Hampshire - before recently leaving Britain.

Jeannie is the daughter of a hotel receptionist and runs her own fashion label - named Jeannie McQueeny - which boasts a selection of Caribbean-themed clothes and jewellery sold in luxury department store Harrods.
