It's Spring 1924 and Georgina has returned from visiting Elizabeth in New York City. On her return from a visit to the Wembly Exhibition, she tells Virginia what she saw: Hudson and Lily the parlor maid, touring the exhibition holding hands. Virginia isn't quite sure what to make of it all and whether she should even raise the issue with him but before she can even decide what to do, Hudson gives Lord and Lady Bellamy one month's notice telling them that he has fallen in love with Lilly and that they are to be married. Lily however isn't so sure and and feels trapped by the turn of events. While she has enjoyed her outings with Hudson, he's never really asked her to marry him and he's not what she would want as a husband. She is left with little choice but to tell him in the frankest terms how she views their relationship, leaving broken hearts all 'round. Written by
