Books

Lady Carnarvon began her career as an author by writing the guidebook to Highclere and a guide to the Egyptian exhibition which transported visitors back to Ancient Egypt. Lady Carnarvon has written two historical books, ‘Lady Almina’ 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. There are fascinating comparisons with what is seen on ‘Downton Abbey’.

Her latest bestseller ‘At Home at Highclere’ is a coffee-table book which documents an insight 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 Carnarvons bringing people together and Lady Carnarvon includes some favourite recipes from the mid-nineteenth century to the present day.
