The Duchess follows the aristocratic lives of the Duke and Duchess of Rutland who live at Belvoir Castle in Leicestershire. We will experience life on this historic estate with the Duchess as she juggles family life and her five children with her efforts to increase revenue at the caste. The Duke understands the necessity to have his castle open to the public, but sometimes would rather it wasn’t. The Duke and Duchess will be joined on screen by the ‘front of house team’ – who must make sure the public and private sides of life at Belvoir don’t clash. Also featuring the private staff including Gemma, the children’s nanny and Mr Horton, the family butler The Duchess is a potent mix of great storylines and remarkable characters set against one of Britain’s most stunning backdrops.
