The Duchess of Royston from ‘The Duchess Assignment’
During a visit to a casino in France, Lady Penelope bumps into an old acquaintance, The Duchess of Royston. The Duchess is losing heavily, and unaware that a pair of criminals are eavesdropping, the Duchess tells Penelope that she has been driven to gambling after "falling on hard times" and has already been forced to part with most of her possessions. Penelope realises that the roulette table has been rigged but is unable to stop the croupiers running off with the Duchess’s money and tiara.
The Duchess has just one valuable possession left: Portrait of a Gazelle, a painting by Braquasso. Penelope tells Jeff Tracy of the Duchess's financial problems. Eager to help, Jeff contacts his New York City business friend, whose company Gazelle Automations is seeking inspiration for its new logo. Although the Duchess is unwilling to sell the painting, she agrees to loan it for the same price, and flies from London to New York to supervisethe handover in person. However, before the chauffeur can collect the Duchess from the airport, he is knocked unconscious by the two criminals from the casino, who plan to steal the Duchess's fee!
