Sometimes the facts are even more extraordinary than the fiction ... Lady Catherine and the Real Downton Abbey tells the story of the beautiful American heiress who lived at Highclere Castle, the setting for Julian Fellowes' award winning drama Downton Abbey. Glamorous and wealthy, Catherine became the toast of London society when she travelled across the Atlantic in 1920 to marry the Earl of Porchester, or 'Porchy', as he was known. At just 19 Catherine had to learn how to organise and host the lavish banquets and weekend house parties that Porchy so loved. She found herself suddenly in charge of the more than eighty staff working at Highclere Castle, and persuaded her husband to improve their living and working conditions

At home at Highclere : entertaining at the real Downton Abbey by Fiona Carnarvon( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lady Carnarvon's love of history is richly rewarded at Highclere Castle with its mine of family records going back some 300 years. She has delved into the archives to create a book that invites you inside the Castle, past and present. Throughout the centuries, Highclere has welcomed Royalty, Statesmen, Egyptologists and pioneers of technology along with men and women from the worlds of music, art and letters. The etiquette of the invitation, the balance of guests at a weekend house party, their 'placement' at dinners, and the entertainment of friends, as well as the domestic management required to execute the perfect occasion, have all preoccupied successive generations of chatelaines. This book tells the story four real life weekends - from 1866 to 1936 - when the great and the good gathered at Highclere to change the world in some large or small part. It then reflects on how the current Countess entertains 'At Home' at Highclere today, including recipes throughout

Downton Abbey har blivit en formidabel TV-succé över hela världen. Här får vi ta del av den verkliga historien bakom det populära kostymdramat som går in på sin fjärde säsong i höst. I Lady Almina och verklighetens Downton Abbey får vi ett fascinerande porträtt av samma kvinna som legat till grund för den fiktiva karaktären Cora Crawley. Lady Almina och verklighetens Downton Abbey berättar den fascinerande historien om Almina Wombwell, den förmögna arvtagerskan och utomäktenskapliga dottern till bankiren Alfred Rothschild som genom giftermål med den femte Earlen av Carnarvon blev Lady Almina, Countess av Carnarvon på Highclere Castle. Nuvarande Countess av Carnarvon har genom omfattande research med tillgång till bland annat dagböcker, brev och fotografier målat ett rikt porträtt av såväl ett liv som en tidsepok. Boken ger en inblick i Lady Alminas liv och verkan, bland annat hennes uppmärksammade initiativtagande till att öppna sitt hem för sårade brittiska soldater under första världskriget. I den fascinerande familjehistorien får vi även veta hur det gick till när hennes make upptäckte Tutankhamuns grav 1922. [Publit]
