We speak to the lovely Violet Manners about what it’s like to live in heritage in modern-day Britain, her creative endeavours and developing an entrepreneurial streak. Violet is the oldest daughter of the Duke and Duchess of Rutland, and has lived a truly extraordinary life, growing up at Belvoir Castle - a multi-towered palace boasting over 356 majestically decorated rooms hosting artworks from some of the best artists in history, on a beautiful 16,000-acre estate in Leicestershire.
With eight years experience working in Luxury and digital, she has now co-founded her very own London-based creative agency, Akana collective, and a fascinating podcast hosted by her lovely mother, called “Duchess”, in which they interview a number of inspiring women who lead some of the most historic manors, palaces and castles of Great Britain.
