Books

Lady Carnarvon has written several books, including two biographical books: “Lady Almina”, a New York Times Bestseller, which covers First World War when Highclere was actually a hospital, and “Lady Catherine” which looks at the twenties and thirties and the Second World War through the real inhabitants, both upstairs and downstairs. These contain fascinating comparisons and similarities with “Downton Abbey”. Her latest bestseller, “At Home at Highclere,” is a coffee table book sharing insights into life at Highclere Castle. Food is a key theme throughout the book, having played an important social role in the lives of the Earls of Carnarvon bringing people together, and Lady Carnarvon includes some favourite recipes from the mid-nineteenth century to the present day.
