A most entertaining, amusing and historical talk “Secrets, Scandal & Salacious Gossip of the Royal Court”, was given via Zoom to a large number of AMD London members, partners and friends this evening.

The presentation was by Sarah Slater an official guide at Hampton Court. Sarah’s talk last year on The Ghosts of Hampton Court was well received and so it made sense to invite Sarah back again for this year’s Autumn online social.

And she did not disappoint, in my opinion topping last year’s talk. With talk on Royal lines, official and unofficial mistresses (aka Ladies of Negotiable Affection), and the connections of families which still to this day are closely associated with our Royal family. The talk concluded with some examples of the types of contraception used during the time with a stark warning given “not to try these at home!!”.

Thank you to all those who attended and if you were not there you missed a treat and will have to look up a picture of Ernest Augustus, Duke of Cumberland to see which PM he looks like and is related to.
