We hope you can join us for the Woman of Our Time Luncheon at Chewton Glen Hotel on Friday 19th November.
We are delighted to announce that Hugo Vickers, well-known biographer, lecturer and broadcaster, is able to join us this year as our guest speaker. The Financial Times recently described Hugo as ‘the most knowledgeable royal biographer on the planet’. He has written many biographies of 20th century figures, including Cecil Beaton, Vivien Leigh, the Duchess of Windsor, Princess Andrew of Greece and the Queen Mother. In May 2021, Hugo published Malice in Wonderland, with extracts from his own diaries about researching the life of Cecil Beaton. He is a Deputy Lieutenant for the Royal County of Berkshire and Captain of the Lay Stewards of St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle, having served as a Lay Steward for nearly 52 years.
Prince Philip - A Tribute. On the eve of what would have been the 74th anniversary of his wedding, Hugo Vickers will talk about Prince Philip, his life and work. Hugo was authorised to work on a book about Prince Philip’s mother, Princess Alice of Greece. Prince Philip helped him with this and also with a book on St George’s Chapel.
Enjoy a sparkling reception on arrival, a delicious three course lunch with wine, tea and coffee, guest speaker Hugo Vickers, Oakhaven Woman of Our Time award presentation and an envelope draw.
