 David, 3rd Marquess of Milford Haven 

From 1952, David was involved in a long-term relationship with the Hungarian film actress Eva Bartok (1927-1998) - who had an affair with American singer/actor Frank Sinatra (1915-1998) and was later married to German film actor Curt Jürgens (1915-1982).  For a while, Bartok was in every magazine or newspaper holding a glass of champagne in one hand with David by her side - from Monte Carlo, Capri to fashionable society events in  London and their high profile relationship caused a scandal.  Romaine, Marchioness of Milford Haven cited Bartok in her divorce petition.
