The Duchess

I have watched the wonderful movie The Duchess staring Keira Knightley ,who did a fabulous job on the big screen portraying ... Georgiana, The Duchess of Devon shire.

I have viewed "The Duchess" for the third time...I do believe it is a favorite of mine.

While watching the movie I have come to admire this brave young lady as she was forced to live with her adulterous husband. She seemed to have been a lady of stylish costume, in dress and hat.

Some one who seemed to be loved by her friends and society.
Loved by her children...this movie broke my heart when she had to hand over her daughter Eliza to her lovers family or lose her other children to her cruel husband the Duke of Devon shire...I took on a great interest in the movie at this point.
This strong lady... displayed her deep love for her children and she would do anything to keep them... .
"G" would even give up her own freedom for her children, her love is portrayed in the painting above.
This film reminds me of the book "The Weaker Vessel" by Antonia Fraser.
It's about strong women through out history. Women who have displayed amazing strength...For "weaker vessels"...we sure are strong!
I have my own history to testify to that!!
Now, I do not pretend to have a lot of knowledge of this story"The Duchess" nor the period...just have a love for England and it's history.
I do have a lot of knowledge of Devon shire cream though!...It is to die for!
I'll soon post this yummy cream I enjoyed so much on my food blog(see side bar).... I enjoyed this cream on a daily bases while visiting England and Wales....
