Thanks for the questions. And I see some of you have already read my book Jane Austen At Home. You are people with taste and intelligence, and I salute you. The rest of you, you know what to do.
Watch out for our BBC2 documentary on Saturday night - Jane Austen: Behind Closed Doors at 9pm. I've heard there is some football on, but you don't want to watch that.
Given Hampton Court’s reputation for restless spirits, have you ever had a paranormal experience there – or anywhere else?
I have given people paranormal experiences at Hampton Court. Our curators office has a back door that opens on to a room called "the Haunted Gallery". Sometimes when we pop out, it freaks people out.
