Born to a Russian aristocrat and Italian industrialist, Mr Francis, full name Mark- Francis Vandelli Orlov- Romanovsky, somehow found himself in London. He was educated at St- Paul’s boys school, possibly the route of his impeccable manners, then University College London where he graduated with a degree in Art History.
His mother, the aristocrat, was a Russian princess and ambassador for Yves Saint Laurent during the 70s and 80s. Rather little is known about her past, with no pictures available either. This is surely most bizarre, for a representative of a global fashion brand, and former princess.
From his former title as a distant heir to the Russian throne, to his speedy quips on Made in Chelsea, he is the epitome of the modern day gentleman. Mr Francis’ style in fashion, and interior design, with MIC showing snippets from inside his boudoir which look utterly fantastic, certainly make him one the most respectable TV personalities.
Simply from viewing the image below, his aristocratic upbringing is evident. The large fireplace, classic leather chair, combined with his lightly coloured chinos and blazer, demonstrate the interior of very few affluent households in the west of London. For a gentleman, the lifestyle of Mark Francis is the ultimate goal.
