About this title:

Synopsis: For some the title Duchess evokes the grandeur of stately homes, but for others it’s about unearned privileges. Whilst historic, many felt it had little relevance in today’s society. That changed in April, 2011, however when the title was taken out of its antechamber, dusted off, and deposited firmly in the High Street and the internet. Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, was to make it topical, even desirable, again. Despite the Queen awarding Prince William a dukedom, the future for dukes, especially non-royal, is not bright. There are only 24 left in Britain today. They and their duchesses are an endangered species. Yet little is known about these women or what their relevance is in today’s Britain. In this unique book, 10 of Britain’s remaining non-royal duchesses talk of their lives and their roles in the 21st century. Most never speak publicly; those who do seldom speak about themselves. To be granted an interview was therefore a huge privilege. With 10 chapters, each focused on one Duchess, there are also 10 sub-chapters looking at a specific ancestor as a comparison. Five of the Duchesses have also allowed us access to their homes, and their chapters will include augmented reality technology.

About the Author: Jane Dismore is a member of the Society of Authors and the Biographers' Club. She began writing for national magazines when she was working as an English teacher. While living and working abroad she presented her features on BFPO radio. Back in the UK she qualified  as a solicitor and worked in private practice but continued to write for newspapers and magazines. Her first non-fiction book was the The Voice from the Garden: Pamela Hambro and the Tale of Two Families Before and After the Great War which was longlisted for the New Angle Prize for Literature. In 2014 her book Duchesses: Living in 21st Century Britain was published and she began writing full-time. Her next book is Princess: The Early Life of Queen Elizabeth II which will be published in 2018 by Globe Pequot (US and Canada). Jane also contributes to history magazines and specialist websites.

Book Description Bonnier Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 2014. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. The title of 'duchess' has long been part of Britain's heritage. In 2011, it was brought up to date with the marriage of Prince William and Catherine Middleton, when the Queen conferred a number of titles on her grandson, among them Duke of Cambridge. Catherine joined that select group of the highest ranking duchesses, well-know royals whose husbands are dukes as members of the Royal Family. But another group of women sit just one notch down from royalty, at the top of the aristocratic tree with their dukes. These non-royal duchesses enjoy titles that were bestowed by monarchs for centuries but they are a dying breed: it is unlikely that any more non-royal dukedoms will be created. Here, for the first time, ten of Britain's non-royal duchesses speak candidly about their role and their lives in the 21st century, an era when privilege is an unpopular concept. Each duchess also selects her favourite ancestor in the role, providing a colourful gallery from the 17th to the 20th century. The parallel biographies provide a thought-provoking comparison - for what does it mean to be a duchess in the 21st century? The results are often surprising and always fascinating.
