Great-granddaughter of H.H. Asquith, British Prime Minister (1908-1916).
She is a first cousin of Baroness Jane Bonham-Carter, and only a distant cousin of Crispin Bonham-Carter: Crispin’s father, Peter Malcolm Bonham-Carter, is a third cousin of Helena Bonham Carter. The first ancestors that Crispin and Helena have in common, are John Bonham-Carter (1788-1838) and his wife Joanna Maria Smith (1791-1884).

- are pale
- have strong jaw line
- are slim
- have the same heart-shaped face with pointed chin
- share the same zodiac "Gemini"
- have really a good sence of humor
