She was born on 15 June 1913, and became the second wife of Sir Michael Duff, 3rd Baronet, on 14 July 1949.

Later Professor Charles David Duff, M.F.A., a theatre historian - Associate Professor, Notre Dame University (London Centre); author of "The Lost Summer; the Heyday of the West End Theatre"; Lecturer, Huntington Library.

Lady Alexandra Mary Cecilia Caroline Paget usually went by her middle name of Caroline.

During the thirties, she was a notable British socialite, and a minor actress. She was beloved of the artist Rex Whistler, who painted numerous portraits of her, including a startling nude, which is on display at Plas Newydd, (the ancestral home of the Marquess of Anglesey). There are several references to her in the published journals of Edith Olivier and The National Screen and Sound Archive of Wales has footage of short films featuring Caroline and her sister Elizabeth, as well as other material. Also see the illuminating article concerning the love affair between Caroline and Rex Whistler.

The marriage became increasingly acrimonious. Lady Caroline Duff died aged 59. She had one child, an adopted son, Charles Duff (b. 1950).
