Radziwiłł married Countess Rose de Mauléon[citation needed] (1913–1996)[2] on 10 April 1940. They had no children and their marriage was annulled in 1945. She later married Baron de Chollet, a Swiss banker.[3]

Radziwill married Grace Maria Kolin on 2 May 1946. They were divorced in 1958. The marriage produced one son:

  • Prince Jan Stanisław Albrycht Radziwill (8 August 1947), who married Eugenia Carras on 14 September 1978. They have two sons and four grandchildren:
    • Prince Jan Michal Radziwill (29 August 1979)
    • Prince Filip Radziwill (4 February 1981) he married Devon Schuster on 16 January 2010. They have four children:
      • Princess Eugenie Elizabeth Radziwill (24 October 2012)
      • Princess Isabella Sophia Radziwill (17 July 2014)
      • Princess Arietta Grace Radziwill (17 July 2014)
      • Prince Stanislaw Radziwill (2018)

Grace Maria Kolin later married William Ward, 3rd Earl of Dudley (1894–1969) as his third wife,[4] and from 1975, she lived with Robert B. Silvers.[5]

Radziwiłł married Caroline Lee Bouvier Canfield on 19 March 1959. They had two children:

  • Prince Anthony Radziwiłł (4 August 1959 – 10 August 1999) he married Carole Ann DiFalco on 27 August 1994.
  • Princess Anna Christina "Tina" Radziwill (18 August 1960) she married Octavio Arancio in September 1999 and they were divorced in 2005.

Later lifeEdit

Radziwiłł was one of the organisers of the Sikorski Historical Institute in London and founder of St. Anne's Church at Fawley Court, the site of Divine Mercy College, a school for boys of Polish origin, set up by the Marian Fathers in 1953 near Henley-on-Thames, England.

He died on 27 July 1976, in London, six days after his 62nd birthday. His body was interred in the crypt of St Anne's Church at Fawley Court.[6] As of 2010 the Marian Fathers were seeking authorisation to exhume the body following the closure of Divine Mercy College (in 1986) and the sale of Fawley Court (2010).[citation needed]


Upon becoming a British subject and in keeping with standard practice, Radziwiłł would have needed permission from Queen Elizabeth II to use his princely title,[3] but did not receive special dispensation and was known in Britain as Mr. Radziwiłł legally and as Prince Radziwiłł by courtesy.
