Did you know that Chequers, the country residence of British Prime Ministers since 1917, was once used as a prison for the younger sister of Lady Jane Grey? The house, near Ellesborough in Buckinghamshire, also has links with Cromwell’s family, and contains many artefacts and other memorabilia related to the Lord Protector – which perhaps gives pause for thought to any royal personage invited there (and entrance for all is by invitation only).
