Famous mourners

STEPHEN FRY, Ronnie Corbett and Michael Parkinson attended the funeral of Sir David Frost.

The broadcaster’s widow Carina and her three sons kept the private service in Nuffield a secret but the family is planning a public service.

After the ceremony, Fry tweeted: “He was a wonderful father, husband and friend. The only people who didn’t like him hadn’t met him.”

Sir David died after suffering a heart attack on a cruise ship on August 31. He was 74.

He and Lady Frost moved to a farm in Nuffield shortly before his death, having sold their £5 million Grade II listed rectory in Hampshire earlier this year.

Sir David’s sister-in-law Lady Marsha George lives in Fawley with her husband Nick. Lady Frost is a daughter of the 17th Duke of Norfolk and grew up in Hambleden.
