Town & Country (UK) - - CONTRIBUTORS -

In this edi­tion, our con­tribut­ing edi­tor charts the tri­umphs and tragedies of great dy­nas­ties from the Ro­manovs to the Rock­e­fellers and the Red­graves (be­low). The au­thor’s seven books range from a bi­og­ra­phy of Nancy Mit­ford to a his­tory of grey­hound rac­ing. Her next, The Last Land­lady ,is a me­moir of her pub­li­can grand­mother and will be pub­lished in July.

Your best piece of mar­riage ad­vice ‘Sep­a­rate bath­rooms. It’s not al­ways re­al­is­tic but the prin­ci­ple be­hind it – that some mys­tique should be re­tained – is a very good one.’

A mem­o­rable wed­ding ‘My brother’s was idyl­lic: sunny, sump­tu­ous and very Four Wed­dings.’
