Lady Victoria Hervey looked incredible as she soaked up the sun during her festive Barbados break on Saturday, amid explosive family feud.
The English socialite, 47, showed off her toned physique in a white and blue shell print bikini while walking along the beach.
Victoria went makeup free and her blonde locks were wet after enjoying a dip in the sea.
The star has been enjoying her stay at the luxurious Sandy Lane Hotel over the Christmas holidays.
Victoria looked completely relaxed, despite reports of her explosive row with Christophe De Pauw, her sister Isabella’s husband.

Victoria accused Christophe of being a wife-beater and insisted she could ‘no longer remain silent’ and posted photos of Isabella’s injuries on Instagram in December after allegedly witnessing her sister’s torment at the hands of her husband.
Yet that seemed far from Victoria’s mind as she also took to Instagram to share snaps of her lying back on a sun lounger on the beach.
Victoria revealed her bikini is from her own luxury swimwear brand Lady Ship Swim, as the star teased she will be relaunching with a new collection in 2024.
In another snap the star cut an elegant figure in a gorgeous full length white lace cover up which was adorned with intricate embroidered flowers.
During this festive break, she has faced personal woes after she alleged that during Isabella’s marriage her husband even left her with a fractured skull after punching her while she was in hospital after giving birth to their daughter.
She also claimed that Christophe had cheated on Isabella with a number of women – and had walked out on her and their three children.
In an exclusive interview with MailOnline, the socialite alleged Christophe was now continuing his ‘brutal’ behaviour towards her sister following their split this summer by failing to give her enough money for her and their children.

She said: ‘I have been really fearing for her safety and mental wellbeing. She was feeling that nothing was ever going to improve, and nobody was going to find out what he was really like.’
‘When I spoke to one of her lawyer friends, he said, “Look Victoria, you have the power to put this out there. I am giving you the go ahead, let’s do this.”‘
‘She was just so broken, and so depressed about the whole thing. A lot of it has been mental abuse, making her feel s**t all of the time, as well as physical abuse.’
Lady Victoria recently posted a series of pictures on the Stories of her Instagram account which has 550,000 followers, showing cuts and bruises to the body of Isabella – who won Channel 4 reality sports show The Games in 2004.
The images showed the results of alleged attacks by her husband during her ‘nightmare’ marriage.
She accompanied the horrific pictures with a series of messages including one saying: ‘This story is to give other women the courage to speak out as it took my sister a long time.’
It comes after reports of Victoria’s explosive row with Christophe De Pauw , her sister Isabella’s husband, after accusing him of being a ‘wife-beater’ and sharing snaps of her injuries

Another message said: ‘Christophe de Pauw should be put away. He is a serial abuser. He would cheat on my sister and then punish her for it. It has got to a point that we can no longer stay silent.’
She said: ‘My sister also found out there had been an affair before that. He basically thought he could have an affair and go back to my sister, but this time she said she wanted a divorce.’
Isabella who appeared on ITV’s Celebrity Love Island in 2005 and was named as the ‘face of Playboy UK’ in the same year, later came home from a competitive cycling trip after her husband moved out, and found her family home in Portugal stripped of a number of belongings.
Lady Victoria has dated numerous high-profile men over the years, from Boyzone’s Shane Lynch to Prince Andrew, but she is currently single.
