Throughout much of Season 3 of Ladies of London, Caroline Fleming’s father, Niels Krabbe Iuel-Brockdorff, fought cancer, but Fleming announced that her father has now passed on. Fleming shared with fans that she was by her father’s side when he died, and even though the last days of his life were painful, he is now at peace.
Caroline Fleming joined the cast of Ladies of London last year, and though she grew up in Denmark, she was a natural fit for the Bravo show. Ladies of London wasn’t Fleming’s first time on television, as she was the star of the Danish show, The Baroness Moves In. Caroline Fleming had been estranged from her father and much of her family after her divorce from Rory Fleming, the nephew of Ian Fleming, the creator of the James Bond franchise.

The Daily Mail said that Caroline Fleming, the former host of Denmark’s Next Top Model, was quite guarded when talking about her family on Ladies of London because for years, their relationship was very fragile. Marissa Hermer, also on Ladies of London, had a friendship for years with Caroline’s sister, but Fleming was still concerned about personal things going on in her family.
Fleming’s mother, Margaretha, died when Caroline was in her teens very suddenly. Tumors were found, and shortly afterward, she passed away. On Ladies of London, the cast went up to Denmark to visit Caroline’s family home and got a chance to see her mother’s memorial, which brought Fleming to tears.
“My mother, like Julie Montagu, was another Cinderella story and married into this aristocratic family. But she was a very successful model beforehand,’ Caroline, who pursued modeling herself.”
When Caroline Fleming decided to model, she felt that she had the approval of her mother in some way.
“I felt fine about this decision because I was following my mothers footsteps, although this was most certainly not a ‘career’ of blue stamp approval or my family’s support.”
