Take a Look at Lady Emma & Lady Violet’s New Podcast

The British royal family is full of surprises. Especially when it comes to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, you can’t possibly know what to expect. For instance, on December 29, 2020, the ex-royal couple launched the special episode of their podcast, “Archewell Audio,” which caused quite a stir. But keeping the political attention aside, the launch made Meghan Markle the first royal to own a podcast to date. Unusual, yet very fitting to the Duchess!

And now it looks like Meghan has kicked off a trend. On February 4, 2021, Emma Manners, the Duchess of Rutland, and her eldest daughter also launched their podcast series named “Duchess” on social platforms like Apple, Spotify, Amazon, Google, Deezer, and Castbox. The aim behind the podcast is to uncover the truth of modern-day British aristocracy. Just FYI, the life of royals is nothing like the Downton Abbey show!

Let’s hear it from the creators themselves!

“Duchess” will give a peek into the glamorous and non-glamorous sides of living in a stately home. While talking with People magazine, Emma recalled an incident when her children ran to her bedroom screaming about the castle flooding.

Emma, who’s lived in the two-century-old Belvoir Castle since June 1992, said that once, she had to run to the roof of the castle in her nightdress and wellington boots to clear a blocked drain. She said she had to remove the blockage from the drain, and the thing blocking it was the carcasses of two dead pigeons!

The 57-year-old elaborated that a lot goes into maintaining the palace, and it needs constant monitoring. Coming back to the podcast, she explained that the series focuses on ten women who are protecting and managing historic British houses. She even gave examples of British homes like Blenheim Palace and Scotland’s Scone Palace.

Lady Violet, Emma’s eldest daughter, pitched in, saying that the podcast is different because it’s approached from a female perspective. She continued that often history overlooks the female’s integral contribution towards a family’s establishment.

Emma, who named the ten women as the “top golden girls,” said she was fascinated after talking to them. She explained that although there’s lots of glamour attached to these women’s lives, pulling off their roles isn’t easy. 

While talking about the four homes featured in the podcast, Violet said it was incredible to see these houses empty. She said she was sad that visitors couldn’t enjoy these palaces due to the Coronavirus. The 27-year-old praised the British homes by saying that they look best when they’re filled with people.
