I'll Have a Blackie & Tan

If she had married (or consorted with) a fellow nicknamed Blackie, they would have been announced as "Blackie & Tan" -- perfect for a Guinness heiress.

Little Guinness Princess

I love the picture of her as a kid with the dog. I love her hat.

Tanis is a nice name

but it really doesn't fit with Guinness

One busy lady

Like many fashionable women of the time, Tanis Guinness accumulated a fine collection of husbands. She threw over her first spouse, the Hon. William Montagu, for the Earl of Carnarvon, only to stand him up at the altar and run away with Howard Dietz. Fourteen years later they divorced and she married a Royal Navy veteran, Lt. Cmdr. Charles Philips.
