Belvoir Castle in Leicestershire is said by experts to be one of the finest examples of Regency architecture in the country.
If the castle looks familiar, it’s because it stood in for Windsor in popular Netflix drama The Crown.
“Elizabeth Hurley turned out to have a surprisingly good voice,” Emma also recalls in her book. “She and David Furnish would always do a duet to Elton John’s ‘Don’t Go Breaking My Heart’.”
The Duchess has presented on various television programmes, including ITV’s Castles, Keeps and Country Homes, and has produced a book about Belvoir Castle.
