We’re rounding off the year with two regal women. Lady Leshurr, queen of the grime scene, is a voice that needs to be heard. A woman from Birmingham, she reigns in a male-dominated scene thanks to the strength of her talent and grit. Now she brings the attitude and integrity, humour and honesty that underpin her lyrics to The Queen Speaks. We’re pairing her story with Mitford - because is the perfect time to read Mitford and because Madame de Pompadour tells the story of how Jeanne-Antoinette rises against a backdrop of savage social-climbing, intrigue, excess and high drama, to become the most powerful women of the 18th century French court, Le Pompadour. Bring on the queens.
