Lady Mansfield said: “It was such a pleasure being able to show Mary and her crew around and to share aspects of our daily lives here at the palace.

“The food we serve here, both publicly and privately, is wrapped in our history, with recipes inspired by the estate and dishes passed down through generations. It was inspiring to see Mary – who I regard as one of the country’s great TV personalities and cooks – soak up our history and use it to create her own gorgeous dishes.”
