Documentary Pig Business, by Tracy, Marchioness of Worcester. She takes on the world's biggest pig famer, the 6 bn ponds a year Smithfield Foods

Champion of the eco-toffs, however, has to be Tracy Worcester. Her secondary-modern first name belies the fact that she is married to the Marquess of Worcester, son of the Duke of Beaufort, who will in due course inherit the 52,000-acre Badminton estate. She splits her time between a cottage there and her Belgravia townhouse, a paean to shabby chic, where she is now passing mugs of coffee beneath signed Francis Bacon prints. Is the Maserati outside hers?"

Helmingham Hall Gardens

...............We hope that the previous eighteen generations of the family would be pleased to see that their home, built so long ago and protected by its sixty-foot-wide moat, still has its two drawbridges pulled up every night and lowered each morning...............

went to this house on a gardentour last week, the house of Lord and Lady Tollemache.

The gardens are wonderful.
We had lunch in a barn/stable and there were pictures of the staff on the wall taken in 2004, about 20 fulltime people, gamekeepers, farmers, butler, cook, secretary etc. Amazing such a big staff and they all looked very nice, someone said that they probably were the children of families who had worked for the Tollemaches for generations but that might be a romantic view. They did look like a happy dedicated group forming with the Tollemaches a world of their own with a common purpose.
I walked in the park to their church which could also be reached from the village and imagined how wonderfull it must be to live in such a historic home.

Wyken Hall, home of Lord and Lady Carlisle

WYKEN VINEYARDS - Carla Carlisle

.......Born on the banks of the Yazoo River in Greenwood Mississippi, Carla Carlisle was raised in the heat of civil-rights activism and Vietnam war protests. Her life took an abrupt turn at age 38 when she married Kenneth Carlisle, a farmer and Tory Member of Parliament, and moved into Wyken Hall, an Elizabethan manor house that has been the Carlisle family home for four generations. ..

Wyken Hall, England - Town and Country Travel

.........When Sir Kenneth Carlisle gave his American wife, Carla, a diamond brooch for her fortieth birthday, in 1988, the native Mississippian thanked him and waited a tactful few days before popping this question: could she sell the brooch and use the money to plant a garden in front of Wyken Hall, their 400-year-old Elizabethan manor house? Several jewels later, the garden has truly blossomed, and the enterprising Lady Carlisle has planted a seven-acre vineyard and converted the original barn into a country shop plus the well-loved Leaping Hare Restaurant, which offers modern British cuisine with an emphasis on local produce.

He was second in line to the historic title of the Marquess of Queensberry.
But for Lord Milo Douglas, 34, life was hardly one of stately homes, exclusive parties and aristocratic ease.
For years, while working as a teacher and later as a charity worker, he battled depression. Finally, unable to cope any longer, he leapt to his death from a council tower block.

Isn't it silly how if you are a female you can't be a duchess in your own right yet can reign as sovereign? It is also silly how Edward has to wait for the Edinburgh dukedom to revert to the crown before he has a chance at getting it. Charles or William could always give it to someone else - there is nothing in Letters Patent that says it will go to him, is there?

It's possible for a woman to be a Duchess in her own right, but just not through inheritance (I don't think there are any dukedoms that go to heirs general). One such example is the Duchess of Inverness. There's nothing about Edward in the letters patent for the Dukedom of Edinburgh. Even if it was something that would be done, Edward wasn't born until more than 16 years after the fact.

I'm truly impressed with your knowledge

It is even possible, although doubtful, that Harry mightn't get any title at all.

We do know a list of unavailable titles but the monarch can create any title she/he likes.
I thought the Queen only had certain titles she could choose from. Can she really create any title she wants as long as it's a realm/area in the U.K.?

I think so. The title "Earl of Snowdon," for example, was created in 1961 for the first time for Antony Armstrong-Jones, Princess Margaret's then-husband. His subsidiary title is "Viscount Linley of Nymans," the one David Armstrong-Jones uses. Linley was the first name of Lord Snowdon's great-grandfather, and Nymans was one of the family's estates, I believe. Both were brand-new, even though there had been a "Baron Snaudon" title at one point.

Simple answer - yes. She has done so frequently using a person's name or the name of the town etc from which they have come or are most associated with.

Thanks for the replies. I guess that makes sense she would give Antony the Earl of Snowdon title because wasn't he Welsh and I think Snowdon is in Wales.
If she can give any title she wants then couldn't she even give the title Duke of London? I wonder why she hasn't already.
