79. Chatsworth and The Duchesses of Devonshire

This week, it’s a journey 500 years in the making! Off to Derbyshire we go to spend some time at Chatsworth, the ancestral home of the Cavendish family and the Dukes and Duchesses of Devonshire.

There were many women who claimed the Duchess title, and a few who did not. We explore them all – from Bess of Hardwick to Georgiana Spencer and Deborah Mitford, the ones who did attain the title, as well as the ones who did not – Lady Caroline Lamb, Adele Astaire, and Kick Kennedy among them.
