Ben Goldsmith's 15-year-old daughter has been killed in a quad bike accident tragedy at the family's farm in Somerset.
Ambulance crews were called to the home in the village of North Brewham yesterday afternoon after the millionaire financier's eldest daughter Iris Annabel was involved in a crash.
Locals in the quiet village told of their shock as the high-profile family comes to terms with the teenager's death, who is the daughter of heiress Kate Rothschild.
'Everyone here who's heard what happened is devastated by this,' said a man living nearby.
The teenager was heir to two of Britain's, and the world's, most powerful dynasties, the Goldsmith and Rothschild families. She was one of three children from the marriage of environmentalist Ben and his society former wife, Kate Rothschild (pictured together bottom right). The tragic girl's uncle is Tory MP Zac Goldsmith and her aunt is Jemima Khan (inset). A family friend told the Mail: 'This is the most awful accident. Iris was a complete firecracker – an absolute delight. Everyone in the family loved her to bits. She was beautiful, charming, intelligent, wonderful company and absolutely the loveliest person you could meet. Ben and Kate are completely devastated. They are numbed to their core and united in their grief. Iris captured the charm of Ben and the sense of Bohemian charisma of Kate. All the family are rallying round Ben and Kate.'
