Princess Marie d’Orléans (1865-1909) is probably the most famous person born in Ham, at what is now Cassel Hospital. She married Prince Valdemar of Denmark, and was accomplished, successful and engagingly eccentric.
Sir David Williams represented Ham and Petersham on Richmond upon Thames Council from 1974 to 2014, and was Leader of the Council from 1983 to 2001. He is also a keen collector with a particular interest in the Orleans royal family in exile.
