The two separated in 1973 but did not get divorced until 1977. This divorce occurred a month before her wedding to Prince Michael of Kent was scheduled to occur. In order for the two to get married, Princess Michael of Kent, the first cousin of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth I, was forced to give up his right to the succession of the throne given that Princess Micheal of Kent was a Catholic. Together the couple has two children; Lord Frederick Windsor and Lady Gabriella Windsor.
