Badminton House, la Meravigliosa Casa della Duchessa Georgia Beaufort nello Gloucestershire.


THE DUCHESS OF BEAUFORT per anni è stata insegnante e giornalista. Il tipo di donna che gestisce i momenti stressanti dicendo a suo marito Harry, il dodicesimo duca: "Ho bisogno di fare una traduzione latina." ... "È una metafora per dire di fare qualcosa che può controllare" 

Badminton House è una grande casa di campagna inglese sita nel Gloucestershire in Inghilterra, ed è stata la residenza principale del Duca di Beaufort sin dal tardo XVII secolo. “Dall'esterno, Badminton House sembra sontuosa, con le sue facciate in stile palladiano, ma l'interno è informale. Quando i genitori di Harry lo restaurarono negli anni '80, non hanno avuto paura di renderlo accogliente, in quanto avevano anche il gusto di conservare l'eleganza. Quindi ci sono grandi cose e cose comode.“ dice la duchessa.

La dimora si è inoltre prestata quale location per le scene di alcuni celebri film: Quel che resta del giorno (1993), Pearl Harbor (2001) e 28 giorni dopo (2002).
