RIP Christine Keeler

Have just read that she has passed on.

My introduction to her was through various magazines in the 90s as celebrities at the time did 'the Keeler pose' on a chair. I seem to recall I had a poster of Louise Nurding as she then was, in that pose on my wall.

Didn't fully understand the significance as a teenager, and it was pre-Wikipedia days so I didn't have an instant answer to 'who is she?'. Nonetheless it got me into interesting conversations with my parents and books about the past.

(This is possibly worthy of the Guilty Fancies thread)

Rest in peace.

Remember the Profumo affair in which through which she became famous/infamous.In brief John Profumo was minister of war (that's what they called it then) who had an affair with Keeler. At the same time she was having an affair with a Soviet KGB agent. This was leaked or found out by the press ,and there was a panic in government that she would be sharing pillow talk with said KGB agent about possible information which could be harmful to security.
Profumo resigned in disgrace and spent the rest of his life doing sterling work for various charities. It was never ascertained as to wether or not security had been compromised . The film with Joanna Whalley is a pretty good summary of events of the time.

Keeler was a very attractive woman ,although let it go in alter life.
Anyway RIP to someone who was at the centre of something that dominated the news back in the early 60's.

A lovely summary. And as others have said the film is a good depiction.

My sister's married name was Christine Keeler and she was hounded by reporters etc looking for a story. One even called her from the US, asking to do a story of her life. She said "OK, but it's not that interesting".

Her adopted notoriety did help her gain access to many clubs in London. "Tickets on the door for Christine Keeler." I joined her a couple of times. It was hilarious. Nobody knew what CK looked like, so assumed it was her.

Anyway, condolences for the other Christine Keeler. Need to call my sister later to see how many flowers she's received so far.

That made me laugh I read a book on some trial I was only about ten I found it fascinating. So the next week went to the library and got the story of the Profumo Affair Trial. First question to step mum....whats a prostitute I had no idea . She was lucky got away with a woman that sells her body.... I forgot to ask what for ?

Did what corbyn couldn't do and bought down a Tory government . On serious note , she was a very troubled lady in later life , though probably a wealthy one too ..
