Madeleine's father holds a barony in English peerage. The daughters of Viscounts and Barons (the two lowest ranks of peers in the British system) are not entitled to be called "Lady [First name]" like the daughters of Dukes, Marquesses, and Earls, but are instead "the Honourable [First name] [Last name]". Thus, as the daughter of a Baron, Madeleine is "the Honourable Madeleine Allsopp", rather than "Lady Madeleine." Nevertheless, as the daughter of a peer, Madeleine is automatically eligible to be presented at court.
She is encouraged by her father, who has little money, to take an interest in Harold Levinson while he pursues Harold's mother Martha because they are rich. She ends up liking Harold from the heart and was upset that he had to go back to America. She also decides not to be a part of her father's schemes anymore. Harold in turn begins to like her more.
