Lady Constance Stewart-Richardson - The Sketch Supplement - 19 November 1913

Constance Stewart-Richardson (1883–1932) was a British dancer and author.

In 1910 her semi-clad dancing for the ‘shilling seats’ of theatres incurred the displeasure of Edward VII who considered it unsuitable behaviour for a noblewoman and she was barred from Court – which constituted social death.
