Lord March is one of us, car guys. Not only is he by far our favorite aristocrat this side of Alfonso de Orleans-Borbón, but also an overall gentleman who always has a few kind words when we meet at Goodwood.

According to The Daily Mail, the incident took place on Wednesday at 4.30am, when somebody used a ladder to break into the Goodwood House, waking up Lady March, hitting Lord March in the head, forcing Lady March to open the safe, tying them up and fleeing the scene with irreplaceable, centuries old family jewels.

While losing the family jewels is painful enough on its own, Lord March also sustained an injury to his ear, not to mention how terrifying this must have been for both of them.

I know of no better cure.
