On another shoot, Barbara Cartland, who was the mother of a school friend, insisted on laying on meringues, claiming he had loved them as a boy. He forced them on his assistants (including the mother of this magazine’s editor) then showered his hostess with compliments. Equally cloying was his admission that, when visiting his cousin Princess Margaret on Mustique, he was happy to brush her hair the 100 times she needed before she could sleep. His charm was also directed at the many models and ingénue actresses that passed in front of his lens over the years, some of whom he stayed with for a while, notably Britt Ekland and Jane Seymour. Though of average height, rather too skinny, with bad skin and traditional English teeth, that inbred confidence made him much more than the sum of his parts. Women were an unusually keen interest, one that his succession of 17 calendars for Unipart, featuring barely clad models in a variety of exotic locations, allowed him to pursue with particular vigour during the 1980s. It doubtless hastened the end of his 10-year marriage to Leonora, daughter of the Duke of Westminster, whom he’d met when taking her portrait as the Debutante of the Year. She was not prepared to keep up with his constant travelling and unstoppable drive, which was unabated by the arrival of three children. Yet he was more than charm and lust. His taste for the bohemian life of the sixties came with a keen commercial sense, leading him into businesses that ranged from clothes boutique Annacat to restaurants and property. He put money into hit sixties stage shows Hair and Oh! Calcutta!, the proceeds from which supposedly financed the house on Mustique. He saw these ventures much as he did the day job — a chance taken. “One must always keep playing hunches,” he said. “You don’t know every day that you are going to take a great photograph.” The money enabled him to sustain four homes, as well as a transport fleet that When visiting his cousin Princess Margaret on Mustique, he was happy to brush her hair the 100 times she needed before she could sleep. might include a Jaguar, a Mercedes, two Jeeps and two motorbikes. It was one reason for the constant working, but not the only one. In later years he strived equally hard for others, including Voluntary Service Overseas and hospices near Shugborough. A new partner, Lady Annunziata Asquith, brought stability, but nothing slowed him down, barring a near-fatal fall from an 18-foot wall in Mustique in 1991. At his core lay that riddle: what was the rush? Why the need to keep moving and working that meant he was unable to stay at Shugborough for more than four days or to go on holiday without taking his camera? Long before, Leonora had confided to a journalist, “I don’t know what he’s trying to prove to whom any more. When I ask I never really get a straight answer.” It’s unlikely that, when felled by a stroke at 66, he knew himself. 42
