But what about his first wife Brigit? Here’s everything we know about her.
Who is Brigit Strawbridge?
Brigit Strawbridge Howard is an environmental activist, who is known for her love of insects.
Her book – Dancing with Bees: A Journey Back to Nature – was released in 2019 and looks at how we can counter the plight of the insect.
The book’s synopsis reads: “[A] charming and eloquent account of a return to noticing, to rediscovering a perspective on the world that had somehow been lost to her for decades and to reconnecting with the natural world.
“With special care and attention to the plight of pollinators, including honeybees, bumblebees, and solitary bees, and what we can do to help them, Strawbridge Howard shares fascinating details of the lives of flora and fauna that have filled her days with ever-increasing wonder and delight.”
