What is your favourite period of history and why?

Probably the 1960s; it was a massive period of social and technological change. And I love the music.

Describe your regular day at the castle.

With different people to meet every day, how can I describe a regular day?

If you could meet one of the people from the castle’s history, who would it be and why?

Probably the 5th Countess, Daisy. In a society based on convention, I like her disrespect for such convention.

Tell us a fascinating fact that not many people know about you!

I once asked Gwyneth Paltrow out without knowing who she was.
