Thank goodness being "grand" is back. We could not have become any more slovenly or déclassé if we had tried. The human race as a whole was becoming generally without manners, grace or character. With programmes like the documentary on Posh People by Tatler and the very fake Made in Chelsea it at least is becoming a little more fashionable to finish a sentence without a burp.
Only very recently the grand appeared on television and of course really "Posh" people would never dream of appearing or  having a public relations girl looking after them. This was really common.  Times have changed and now it is okay to have gone to university, to have a job, look glamorous and be an aristocrat or a socialite all at the same time. This is my list. Being a celebrity or wanting press was very common. The real aristocrat tends to be more down to earth than their jumped up counterparts. They are more earthy and easy to speak to. They still have the title, but they often have humility too.
