Rich people in England fascinate me. They are a different breed. They are not a dying breed as they tend to marry other rich people and procreate. There are different levels of wealth here in England. First, we have the aristocrats. Think Downton Abbey. They do exist and live in a similar type of house (although much of it is leased to the National Trust for tours. Hey, rich people gotta eat too). Most of these people are land rich and money poor. I guess we all have a cross to bear. Also, these people are born with titles. These titles are then passed down to the men in their families. Sorry girls, you have always known the rules but not to worry your rich Dad has secured a nice trust fund for you when you finish your finishing school in Switzerland. Next we have people who have ‘new’ money. These are people who were not born to wealthy families but either through hard work or luck or fantastic football skills now have mega bucks. Think Richard Branson of Virgin and David Beckham. Neither of these blokes went to University but they have more money than they could possibly spend in their lifetime. Good on them.One thing about rich people in England is that they are pretty consistent. They speak well. Of course they do. They say ‘supper’ instead of ‘dinner’ and ‘mind’ instead of ‘excuse me’. Both wear Barbour jackets. Men wear salmon coloured trousers. Women wear their hair in messy fishtail braids and both wear a pinkie ring with their family crest. I have a Barbour jacket and also wear a pinkie ring. But I don’t know how to do a fishtail braid. So close but yet so far. I am happy being me and that is all she wrote.
