A wonderfully intimate look into the life and work of India Hicks and her extraordinary family. In Season One we’re talking Movie Stars, Matadors and Maharajas as we have tea and cake with Lady Pamela, daughter of Lord and Lady Mountbatten and of course India’s much moved mum. Now in her 90s Lady Pamela’s stories will astound you; she’s first cousins with Prince Philip, travelled the world on the famous Commonwealth tour when Princess Elizabeth became Queen, befriended everyone from Grace Kelly to Gandhi and had a front row seat as her father, the last Viceroy of India, oversaw the complicated process of partition.

Extraordinary ❤️

This is a wonderful, firsthand glimpse into a storied time in British history. Lady Pamela Hicks has led an extraordinary life as a member of the British Royal family but her remembrances are narrated with such elegance and humility. She is simply recalling family stories. You really feel as though you are sitting in her drawing room and having a cup of tea with her.

But this is also a beautiful love letter between Lady Pamela and her daughter, India Hicks, the podcast’s narrator. The love between them is palpable and the memories shared priceless. And should inspire us all to share and cherish our family memories, whomever our family may be. Because as was said so eloquently in Downton Abbey, “ one day only we will remember Mama or Papa or any of the others who have peopled our youth”.

Brilliant!! More please!! ❤️

Love these podcasts so much, India & her sweet mum Lady Pamela do an amazing job transporting us back to a different era and letting us all in on what it was like to accompany Princess Elizabeth around the world! And then hearing play by play what it was like to return to England with a Queen! Each of these podcasts is a treasure! Addicted!!! ❤️💥

Priceless Oral History

I think what you’re doing, capturing your mother’s memories in the podcast is amazing. I’m a big history nerd and think we should all do that but your family has actually played a role in shaping history and that makes it that much more important. I love hearing the history first hand. 😊
