Hopefully no one, in this day and age. The honour is awarded to the recipient… for anyone else to try and style themselves something as a result is rather pathetic.
Last “Lady” I head of was Lady Renouf, who’s making quite a name for herself as a Holocaust denier, and seems to receive publicity only because of her “title”, which no journo seems to realise wasn’t awarded to her at all.
Besides, it doesn’t work in reverse so it’s clearly a sexist anachronism… surely none of our enlightened Parliamentarians would betray the Sisterhood?! 😀
Greenfly – I gave you a thumbs up for that one, despite snorting coffee through my nose.
And I was about to congratulate you in my comment … I then thought “hey – I thought she was Sir Tumu’s brother?” And then I thought, “hey, but Tumu got a real knighthood anyway – before it changed to the DCNZM – so anyone married to him could already use the style Lady.” Then I got even more confused, so left the congratulations out to be safe.
