A prince that lived in Quorn!

During the 1930s Sardar Taj Mohamed Khan Odho, a young Indian prince lived on Chaveney Road in Quorn whilst studying at Loughborough College. He became well known in the village for his fast cars and wild parties!

In 1938 Bob (as Prince Odho was known) married 18 year old Nellie Morris from Loughborough and the young couple, who soon had three children, lived in Quorn for the next few years. Sadly the fairy tale marriage did not have a happy ending, and the attached article tells an intriguing and painful story of rejection and secrets.
