New Article at The Royal Articles: Rosa Lewis
The Royal Articles has a new article, written by BeatrixFan, looking at the life of Rosa Lewis.
The short description of the article is as follows:
“Rosa Lewis is perhaps best known these days as the inspiration for the main character in the 1970s TV series “The Duchess of Duke Street.” She was a Victorian kitchen maid who became a world-renowned cook and the proprietor of the Cavendish Hotel on Jermyn Street in London. Edward VII, both as Prince of Wales and later as King, greatly appreciated Rosa’s excellent cooking and her sharp Cockney wit, as well as her beauty. It is rumoured that Rosa was one of his many mistresses, but she was the soul of discretion on this subject so the rumour has never been confirmed. Rosa lived through both world wars and experienced first-hand the resulting upheavals to the social structure. In prosperity and diversity her wit and wisdom never failed her. This article tells her story. “Filed under The United Kingdom
