Re: Its a girl :) well done Kate & Wills

As in all walks of life, there are variants. For instance, we live on, and my wife works on, a large private estate for a titled family. They own a large house, which is warm and friendly. Everyone on the estate is made to feel like family, and I can walk into their kitchen almost anytime for a cup of tea. He is ex-Guards and now self-employed in estate management. Very down-to-earth people who would never ask anyone to do something they wouldn't muck in themselves to help.

On the other hand, we've also worked for another titled family who didn't even know how to make a cup of tea and treated underlings like dirt.
