Loved reading about this as it comes up so often in the JAFF I read so constantly.

Lady Jersey’ s mother was a mistress to the Prince of Wales and she still had the nerve to give the cut direct? Amazing

I always love the concept of limiting admittance and thus increasing the prestige of the invites for those who receive them. Thereby increasing the draw and escalating the profile of the establishment. The patronesses were very illustrious personages of their own right and well versed in their business as it were. Great post. I love the history of it. Although I can never quite figure out why someone takes over ownership of a very successful business and then changes the name. Seems completely counterintuitive. LOL
