The end of the love story is definitely a sad one. He leaves Kitty and returns to his wife and she goes on with her life. Their son, Augustus Retnuh Reebkomp, the middle name being his mother’s surname reversed and the surname an anagram of Pembroke.
Even after the end of their relationship, she continued to associate with Pembroke. She visited his riding school at Wilton and was included in a series of paintings commissioned by Pembroke of him. The Pembrokes informally recognised the earl’s son. When he joined the navy and, upon his promotion to captain, was allowed the surname of Montgomery, one of Pembroke’s subsidiary titles. His family was well supported by the Pembrokes and even Kitty received a payment in his will, but she died the following year.
Kitty married a very handsome Captain Alured Clarke, a British army officer. They had no children.
