    Dina Merrill, actress and socialite, has died aged 93

    "Dina Merrill passed away at the age of 93 on Monday at her estate in East Hampton, New York.

    One of the most famous American socialites of the 20th century, Nedenia Marjorie Hutton shocked her parents and the Park Avenue set with her decision to study acting and later head to Hollywood, where she changed her name at the start of her career.

    It was a shocking and unheard of move for a young member of society at that time, especially one whose mother built the palatial Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach and owned what was then the world's largest yacht.
