I would really like to share with you some of the more interesting aspects of our island, as well as its unique customs and culture.

In The Lady in Waiting I aim to bring you a fresh and elegant commentary on modern British culture and society, with a particular focus on the finer things in life. I’ll be commenting on the best of British, and certainly the most interesting: ranging from The Queen’s inimitable sense of style, the arts, society,¬†exhibitions and conservation. I love everything stylish, from period drama to vintage dressmaking, so expect to see some beautiful things on this blog. I’ll also be sharing some great traditional British recipes, particularly for afternoon tea, as cake is one of the things in life I feel passionately about.

I hope you enjoy my blog, and please feel free to contribute!
