Christine Keeler, the former model at the centre of the Profumo affair, which shook British politics in the 1960s, has died at the age of 75, her family and a close friend have said.
Her son Seymour Pratt, who now lives in Ireland, told the Guardian: 'There was a lot of good around Chris's rather tragic life, because there was a family around her that loved her.' he said.
Christine Keeler was just a teenager when she had affairs with Conservative minister John Profumo and a Russian diplomat during the height of Cold War tensions in 1963.
In his Facebook tribute, Mr Platt stated: "My mom, the grandma to my delightful young lady, passed away before the end of last night".
"The same number of you know my mom, Christine Keeler, battled many battles in her momentous life, a few battles she lost however some she won".
"We are all very proud of who she was".
A healing facility representative affirmed Ms Keeler had passed on at the Princess Royal. It was considered to be a factor behind the fall of the government led by Harold Macmillan, which was replaced by a Labour government in 1964 led by Harold Wilson.

Eventually he admitted lying to the house and resigned as Secretary of State for War and from the Commons.
Keeler, who had been living under the name of Sloane for many years, was briefly married twice; both marriages ended in divorce.
