She was described as the most dangerous woman in Europe by Adolf Hitler; Noel Coward said people who spent any time with her were always reduced to "gibbering worshippers;" she adored Margaret Thatcher and disliked Germans; and she found the French comical and hankered for the old days of Empire and Commonwealth.
