LADY'S DIVORCE SUIT. I GRANDDAUGHTER OF DUKE OF CAMBRIDGE I PETITIONS. After less than five years of wedded life, Mrs. Olga Mary Adelaide Hamilton, the handsome daughter of Admiral Fitz George and grand- daughter of his Royal,Highness the Duke of Cambridge, sought a divorce on Monday from aer husband, Mr. Charles Edward Watkin Hamil- ton, eldest son of Sir Edward Archibald Hamilton, Bart. Desertion and misconduct were alleged, and the suit was not defended. The position of the parties was not stated in court, but Admiral FitzGeorge sat by the side of his daughter, who was dressed in black, with a black picture hat. Mr. Bargrave Deane, K.C. (with whom was Mr. Barnard), said the marriage took place in St. Peter's Church, Eaton-square, in December, 1897. Mr. and Mrs. Hamilton lived together until 1901, when they left their house at Midhurst, in Sussex, and came to London. The respondent then left his wife, and did not com- municate with her, with the result that in June last she instituted proceedings for restitution of conjugal rights, an order for which was made in the succeeding month. Mr. Hamilton had not complied with that order, and not having done so Mrs. Hamilton had instructed her solicitors to have him watched. Early in Auzust last Mr. Hamilton stayed at Chingford, witl a lady who was not his wife, and on that the present petition was founded. Mrs. Hamilton gave evidence to this effect. A coachman stated that he had driven Mr. Hamilton and a lady (who was not Mrs. Hamilton) from London to Chingford, and that Mr. Hamilton and the lady stayed there for three nights. On this evidence Sir F. Jeune granted a decree nisi, with costs. The respondent is only twenty-six years of age. He was married at twenty-one. There is one child of the marriage, a boy, born in 1898, to whom the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall and the Duke of Cambridge stood sponsors in person. Duke and Duchess of Cornwall and the Duke of Cambridge stood sponsors in person.
