Unfortunately the room with the painting I was so desperate to see at chatsworth was closed over the Christmas period so I’m going to have to go back in summer 😂 but instead I got a cushion with it printed on 👏🏼 (The Duchess of Devonshire as Cynthia from Spenser's Faerie Queen by Maria Hadfield Cosway, c. 1781-82.) #chatsworthhouse#georgianacavendish#williammorris
🔹The Duchess🔹 Georgiana and Bess were friends in real life according to Amanda Foreman's biography about Georgiana. Movie potrays them having nice friendship except Bess's affair with Georgiana's husband. In the biography that this movie is based on their relationship was quite one sided. Georgiana loved Bess unconditionally but Bess only used their friendship to get money from Georgiana. There was rumours about these to also having sexual relationship but there is no proof of that. #perioddrama#theduchess#theduchessmovie#kieraknightley#georgianacavendish#periodfilm
Walking through this breathtaking property I couldn’t help but wonder what Georgiana Cavendish thought when she arrived hear as a young bride, as the new Duchess of Devonshire.
