A Viscountess has blamed badgers for the slaughter of 200 lambs on her family’s estate, as she called for a widespread cull of the animals.

Helene, Viscountess Scarsdale, a formidable aristocrat, said the lambs had been killed in three years, while also accusing the National Trust, which now owns historic Kedleston Hall in Derbyshire, of allowing the badgers to “wreak havoc”.

She said 500 acres of “beautiful” parkland at Kedleston, which has been in the family for almost 1,000 years, had been allowed to turn into “thistles and nettles” by the trust, which in turn had let badgers thrive.

The National Trust took over Kedleston about 30 years ago. Their son, the fourth Viscount Scarsdale, lives in a wing of the stately home. She said she had been horrified by what she believes is the killing of lambs owned by a tenant farmer.

After inheriting one of the finest dukedoms in the kingdom, with a spectacular castle, estimated £350 million wealth and more than 100,000 acres of land, one might have thought the Duke of Northumberland’s family were in for an easy life.

Not so, it seems.

Ralph Percy, the 12th Duke of Northumberland who inherited his title in 1995, has spoken of some of the hardships of one of Britain’s grandest estates, after his young family were left feeling imprisoned by crowds of curious tourists.

Saying his inheritance was “terrifying”, bringing with it the pressure of keeping the estate running, the Duke disclosed castle life “didn’t really work” initially.

The Duke himself was born at the castle, educated at Wellesley House and Eton before going on to history at Oxford and taking a course in surveying.

The headline is awkward.
The Duke in question can find a different way to fund the castle and close it to the public. Various perils of being a Duke are easily outweighed by advantages of belonging to an upper class.

Oh how marvelous!! Once I got into that library, I'd be happily in my own element for years. Books, books and more books and probably some very rare editions of books too!

The Duke of Northumberland has helped to launch a new set of stamps to mark the 300th anniversary of the birth of Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown.

The stamps showcase some of the best loved surviving examples of Brown’s work, and celebrate his contribution to landscape gardening.

Alnwick Castle, the most northerly example of the landscape gardener’s work, features on the £1.05 stamp.

No, only their children do. Their eldest son will also never inherit his father's title because it is a life peerage.

No. Not even when his son has children. Robert is only a baron, and a life peer. Like the younger sons of earls (higher titles all sons are lords), all children of viscounts and barons simply are honorable. It doesn't extend to grandchildren. If he was a hereditary peer, Alexander's kids would be 'the honorable' only when Robert died and Alex inherited.
