‘history leaves you with a sense that nothing is inevitable…’

As we go to press on this issue of Good Housekeeping, we seem to have entered a very strange period, with wall-to-wall coverage of the spread of the coronavirus and analysis of its global social and economic ripples on every news channel. As my 15-year-old daughter said to me: ‘Mum, in history lessons in the future, kids will be learning all about what’s happening to us now.’ A rather astute assessment. As a history graduate with a passion for the past, I was so pleased that inspirational historian and TV presenter Lucy Worsley sat down with us for an interview (page 36) and, although at the time we met her the current situation had barely begun, I think there’s much reassurance to be found in her words: ‘History leaves you with…

Q. When did you last experience the kindness of a stranger? A. A man offered me his seat on the train just because I was reading a book and he thought I might like to be comfortable while I read it.

‘smashing glass ceilings is a great feeling’

‘Kickass’ and ‘badass’ are two of Anita Rani’s favourite words, and she’s a pretty good example of them. Born and raised in Bradford to a Sikh mother and a Hindu father, she defied traditional cultural expectations and became the first in her family to go to university, the first to pick her own career path, and the first to marry a man of her own choosing when she wed husband Bhupi in 2009. Her determination to break boundaries might explain why her career continues to reach new heights. She’s hosted countless documentaries and is now in her fifth year presenting Countryfile, the BBC One show that sees her regularly travel the length and breadth of the country. And this year, she’s fronting the new series Britain’s Best Parent? for Channel 4. Now…

THE SKIRT & TOP COMBO Is this a dress? No, it’s a cute top and matching skirt, giving you more wardrobe mileage. Pair the top with jeans for a relaxed look or the skirt with a smart white shirt for something office appropriate, or dress them both up with a clutch and espadrille wedges for the perfect day-to-evening outfit. THE STANDOUT JUMPSUIT The trusty jumpsuit is probably the most hard-working piece you will ever buy, and this season, there are a variety of styles and patterns on the high street, so nab one now (if you haven’t already). They can be super-relaxed, which is great for days off, but they can be dressed up, too: wear with a belt to cinch your waist and add heels to take it up a notch. THE MUST-HAVE…
