I think this could be an example of a fictitious name of public house
being given to the Court, in the hope that it doesn't attract bad publicity.
ALTERNATIVELY: it could have been a journalistic error.  I don't suppose
we'll ever know.

Is this a jounalistic error, or was it known as the
'Duchess of Kent' for a period of time?
