If Netflix ever got the bright idea of making a drama out of Rose Dugdale’s life, the opening scene could well be in the powder room of Buckingham Palace before a nervous débutante was presented to Queen Elizabeth.

Young Dugdale would look in the mirror and wonder what she was doing there, knowing that this was not a world she wished to inhabit.
