Lady Elizabeth Clyde (26 December 1918 – 25 November 2013) was an English socialite. She was the daughter of Gerald Wellesley, 7th Duke of Wellington, and Dorothy Violet Ashton, and thus a great-great-granddaughter of Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington.[citation needed]

She married Major Thomas Clyde of the Royal Horse Guards, son of William Pancoast Clyde, on 18 November 1939. The family lived at Dorney, Buckinghamshire. The marriage ended in divorce in 1960. She retired to Bramley, Hampshire.[1]

Her children are:

  • Jeremy Clyde (born 22 March 1941), actor
  • Robin Clyde (19 April 1943 – 13 February 1950)
  • William Jonathan Clyde (born 27 May 1948).
