Quotes from Christine Keeler

'I took on the sins of everybod'... More

Christine Keeler’s fame rests solely on her part in the Profumo Affair that threatened for a time to bring down the government of Harold Macmillan, and delightfully exposed Lord Astor to national ridicule. She had a brief liaison with then Secretary of State for War John Profumo, while (possibly) involved with a Russian naval attaché.

She has published several books about the scandal, but is more likely to be remembered for the iconic sixties portrait of her astride a plywood chair than for anything she has penned.
