But, if you don’t know her that well, we are here to help you with that. Don’t tab out, she’s an interesting one so you might want to get to know her.

Introduction to Angel Adoree

Angel Adoree was born Angela Newman on April 7, 1987, under the zodiac sign Aries. She only later changed her name to “Angel Adoree” on her own.

Angel maintains her social media presence through Instagram under the username @the_chateau_tv with her husband, Dick Strawbridge, with over 113K followers.

She Has a Whole Lot of Individual Achievements

While most people know Angel through the fame of her husband, Dick Strawbridge, she has a whole lot of accomplishments as an individual as well. 

Angel is the founder of The Vintage Patisserie which is a 1940s vintage-themed hospitality company.

On top of that, she is a published author who has written books like The Vintage Tea Party Book (2011), The Vintage Tea Party Year (2012), and The Vintage Sweets Books (2013). She even co-authored the book, Chateau: The Beginning, with her husband, in 2018.

More people know Angel because of her appearance in the reality show, 'Escape to the Chateau.' The show follows Angel’s family with her husband, as they are seen buying and renovating Chateau de la Motte-Husson in northern France. The chateau is reported to be worth $2 million.

Angel Adoree's Married Life with Dick Strawbridge

Angel and Dick met for the first time in 2010 through a mutual agent. While they did not speak much the first day, both of them had a spark despite their age difference of 19 years. 

During the first phase of their relationship, Angel was in London while Dick was in Cornwall. So, it was a bit difficult to maintain a long-distance relationship. They soon got married in 2015. 

But before they got married, they had already welcomed two kids. Their first kid, son Arthur was born in 2013, and their youngest one, daughter Dorothy was born in 2014. 

An interesting thing to note is that Dick always calls her by her birth name, Angela. 

Before Angel, Dick had already been married. He was married to Brigit and welcomed two kids with her. His kids from his first marriage are already grown-ups now with James being 38 and Charlotte being 34. Dick separated from his wife in 2010. Brigit also remarried in 2017.
