Lord Madden…

Lord Madden, the recently ennobled British ambassador to Athens, his wife Lady Penelope, and their daughter Cordelia celebrated Queen Elizabeth II’s birthday on June 25 with a reception at the embassy. Among the crowd of visitors roamed the family’s seven cats, including the one-eyed King Oedipus. The Maddens found King Oedipus (r), formerly of the National Gardens, and fluffy Martha (l). Lady Madden is keen to save the homeless animals of Athens from being impounded or put down, and has made her telephone number available to any animal welfare organization, public or private, that is willing to help.
