Belgravia, London - (Tabloid Mess): Lord Linley's blonde bombshell wife Serena has been seen arriving at the Red Lion Square orifices of top-notch London divorce lawyers Mishcon de Reya, looking thunderous.
M'Lady is said to have got a horrible shock in September after some lowlife narcotics peddlers demanded fifty thousand pounds from a Buckingham Palace under-valet who had been videotaped performing an act of oral resuscitation upon Lord Linley as the two enjoyed a snort of two of cocaine.
Then earlier this week the UK tabloids plastered the news-stands with headlines hinting broadly at the identity of the 'minor royal' caught in flagrente, without actually pointing an unsubtle finger at David Linley, her husband of 14 years.
The couple were to have dined on Tuesday night at Buckingham Palace's lavish Official State Reception for the Saudis.
But at the last moment, Lady L threw a wobbly, hit her feckless AC/DC spouse over the head with one of her 5 inch heeled Manolo Blahniks, set fire to his dinner suit and then kicked him out of the Belgravia matrimonial home.
Today's sighting of Serena Linley outside Princess Diana's famous divorce lawyers has sent a shiver of horror in Buckingham Palace ahead of the expected revelations that a December 20th court case at the Old Bailey is likely to bring as two men accused in the blackmail, coke and sex drama appear in court.
