The Pursuit of Love has got us hooked on the fascinating Mitford sisters – and their descendants are just as glamorous

Don't believe The Pursuit of Love – not all aristocrats are bigots, buffoons and bounders

Don’t believe The Pursuit of Love – not all aristocrats are bigots, buffoons and bounders
Are the English upper classes an absurd alien race? The makers of The Pursuit of Love – and many more TV dramas – certainly seem to think so

Emily Mortimer’s production of The Pursuit of Love presented her with an interesting conundrum. She was not just bringing the eccentric aristocracy to the screen, she was adapting them from Nancy Mitford’s adaptation, so she was already two steps away. A series such as The Crown is easier to dissect since it is the fictionalisation of real life people – it makes no attempt at reality at all, but does the unforgivable thing of creating cooked up situations for real people to the point that a large number of viewers – and even documentary makers - believe it to be true.

Who would have guessed? (Then again, maybe it makes perfect sense after months of being starved of glamour and high jinks) – the aristocracy are now firmly back in fashion.
Granted, there was a flutter of interest around the time of Downton Abbey, but that was as much about Carson as Lady Mary, and you never wanted to go to their parties. What’s piqued our curiosity and electrified our tastebuds are the aristo class as portrayed in the BBC’s adaptation of The Pursuit Of Love: eccentric and decadent, bonkers and beautiful.

Meet the stranger-than-fiction family behind the BBC drama, who kept horses on the staircase and Nazis in the closet
17 May 2021 • 6:57am
When The Pursuit of Love came out in 1945, Evelyn Waugh noted in his diary: “Nancy has written a novel full of exquisite detail of Mitford family life”. Nancy Mitford never found a muse to match her own family. Even later, when she came to write historical biography, starting with her acclaimed Madame de Pompadour, she couldn’t help turning it into a breed of memoir: “I do love it... They were all exactly like ONE,” she wrote in a letter.

Baths, come-hither eyes, giggles and bedtime kisses: the semi-Sapphic portrayal of cousins Linda and Fanny seems ripe for the male gaze

It’s always a pleasure to see a TV show that hinges on female friendship – and, in theory, the new BBC adaptation of Nancy Mitford’s The Pursuit of Love starring Lily James should be a prime example. It centres on the bond between cousins Fanny (Emily Beecham) and Linda (James), who are brought up together, come out together (not like that – as debutantes), and compare notes on their subsequent marriages and life choices.

My unforgettable lunch at the poshest table in London – no, not the River Café

The Hurlingham Club – ‘like a Merchant Ivory film, 40 years on’ – proved an ideal spot to forget all about Covid

It is the poshest table in London, I’m telling you. Forget those chichi Mayfair restaurant terraces. Forget the River Café, which is sublime, yes, yes, but also where a piece of fish practically invisible to the human eye costs £900. At least I think it was a piece of fish. Could have been a tadpole. Forget those places. Last Friday, my friend Emma invited me for lunch at the Hurlingham Club.

Lily James breaks silence on those Dominic West kissing photos
The actress was the subject of a cheating scandal involving her married "The Pursuit of Love" co-star.
May 4, 2021 08:54 BST
Lily James finally addressed rumours of her relationship with Dominic West seven months after PDA photos of their romantic getaway to Rome made headlines.
The "Cinderella" star has remained tight-lipped about the scandal in recent months. She even backed out from a series of video interviews after the pictures leaked. A couple of photos particularly stood out as they seemed to show the married actor kissing her and nuzzling her neck as they dined outside a restaurant. The actor even ditched his wedding ring for the get-together.

The Pursuit Of Love starring Lily James now has a trailer and release date
It really looks very good
By
Meghna Amin
If
The Pursuit Of Love rings a bell, it could be because you’ve read the classic Nancy Mitford novel of the same name. Or (possibly more likely) because it’s what Lily James and Dominic West had been filming in the months prior to
those paparazzi photos hitting the headlines in September.
Scandal aside, if you miss
Downton Abbey or couldn’t get enough of
A Suitable Boy earlier this year, then
The Pursuit Of Love has your name all over it. Yep, the BBC’s hard at work bringing us a romcom period drama set between the two World Wars and we’re ready to be obsessed. Here’s the lowdown on the plot, the cast and everything else you need to know…
