In these ‘Memories’ episodes, Emma has selected some of her most treasured memories from the Duchess podcast.

On this week’s Memory, we listen back to when The Duchess met to Lady Mansfield of Scone Palace and heard the moving story of one of Britain’s first black aristocrats: Elizabeth Dido Bell.

In the full episode Lady Mansfield and The Duchess speak about the incredible contributions the first Earl Mansfield made to racial equality, we learn about the Stone of Destiny and how central Scone was in crowing Scottish royalty, and Lady Mansfield explains the origins behind one of Scone’s great treasures: Marie Antoinette’s writing desk.
