"We carry more luggage than the porters at King's Cross"

My secret Downton fangirl life

A to Z of Period Drama

Elizabeth, feeling all the more than common awkwardness and anxiety of his situation, now forced herself to speak; and immediately, though not very fluently, gave him to understand that her sentiments had undergone so material a change since the period to which he alluded, as to make her receive with gratitude and pleasure his present assurances. The happiness which this reply produced was such as he had probably never felt before, and he expressed himself on the occasion as sensibly and as warmly as a man violently in love can be supposed to do." - Chapter 58 (Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen)

the best of 2013 | [8/12] shows - the white queen

"It’s a sign, it’s a sign. The York reign is ending. The sun in splendour is being put out and the new King will come like a dragon.”

Heiress to the red rose of Lancaster, Margaret Beaufort is a strikingly pious child, the blurb on the book tells us. Saints’ knees her stigmata, she has a fierce and unwavering sense of destiny.  If not a nun, then she’ll be Queen of England and sign her name Margaret Regina: Margaret R.
