Her paternal grandmother Mary Frideswide was the daughter of Charles Robertson, a stockbroker and benefactor of St Philip's Priory, Begbroke and one of the co-founders of Westminster Cathedral.[5] Her older sister is Louise Bagshawe Mensch, a Chick-Lit author and former Conservative Member of Parliament.
