In the US, it's the only reason anyone even knows his name (actually, for all I know, the younger people don't at all). If I didn't go on message boards with people from the UK, I probably wouldn't know he had a daughter other than Fifi. Well, I did once read a Vanity Fair article about the death of Paula, but I certainly wouldn't have retained the names of the other kids.
