  • I bond for you.

  • They almost cast me as the Duke.

  • Clearly you can see from that performance, but they went with reggae for some reason.

  • I still don't understand why.

  • Hello, Vanity Fair.

  • I am Nicola Coughlin, and today I am bringing through some Bridget and slang, which hopefully I know.

  • And if I don't well, we'll find out together and isn't that exciting?

  • First one is vie Count not this count, like Anthony Bridget and as of I count one step above a Lord, but not as good as the Dukes.

  • That's why they're all excited when Daphne gets married to the Duke because it means she's slightly higher position in society.

  • I've also know how to say this word for a really long time, because there used to be biscuits called I can't Biscuits and I mean biscuit in the cookie sense.

  • There's a lot of definitions happening here, even beyond bridged and food definitions.

  • Who knew?

  • Thanh Thanh is short for the bond Thanh, which in French means good manners.

  • It's like high society.

  • They were so the celebrities of their day.

  • They were the people that the Gospels written about, and they used to like chill with the queen.

  • She was there.

  • Girl.

  • Landau Landau is like a fancy horse drawn carriage.

  • It's funny, the carriages and Bridget and obviously they're real.

  • You get into them, but it's super like uncomfortable to ride in a carriage because it's all the cobblestone streets and you just sort of giggling all over the place and you know your wigs going to fall off a spinster.

  • I mean, look, I can't believe we still have this time.

  • Men have bachelor.

  • A bachelor is cool and you can go and hang out with his friends on holiday.

  • But if you like oh, me and my spinster friends, he'll be like, Oh, no, no, that's something that's terrible.

  • Spencer is just an unmarried woman, but it's like such a mean gives me like Rumpelstiltskin bites.

  • We need a new word we need like hot single bitch.

  • Let's get rid of spinster.

  • Come on, Spanish 21 Dandy.

  • I don't know why I'm doing this in a weird Maggie Smith was.

  • It's like a fashionable guy.

  • He's into his clothes.

  • He's a bit of a row.

  • He's kind of sexy, exciting.

  • He knows what he's about second, so I didn't learn this from Bridget, and I learned it from Hamilton.

  • You have really made me annoyed, and therefore I'm going to shoot at you and you're going to shoot at me, and that's how we will solve it.

  • Okay, Firstly, who came up with that?

  • It's a really dumb idea and no offense, but then your second is the person who brings your pistols.

  • They are like the ones who are in charge of executing your estate.

  • And in Anthony's case, during the do, if he had been killed, Benedict with a second so you would have taken over all of entities responsibilities also like you're just annoyed.

  • Why are you making me do all these things that you like?

  • Dowager Dowager is like Lady Danbury.

  • She is like a wealthy widow whose inherited her husband's estate.

  • They were nearly the women in society that had the most agency because they kind of had their own money and can do what they wanted to do and didn't have to marry some other weird dude.

  • So being a dowager was actually a really good time.

  • Let's be honest when you burn for someone, it means you just, like, really have the hot for them.

  • You're just like all about them.

  • And after the pandemic, there's gonna be a lot of burning for people.

  • Do it carefully.

  • That's all I was like courting.

  • So courting is essentially dating.

  • You know, there's some parts of courting that I'm like, Bring it back, you know, when you go to the ball and then the next day they show up at your house with flowers in a puppy.

  • Where did that go?

  • Why is it like tinder nowadays?

  • Swipe left and right?

  • No.

  • Bring me a puppy If you were interested.

  • Adopt, Don't shop also, Your Grace.

  • That's how you would address a Duke or Duchess.

  • Would you address of I count like that?

  • I don't know, but we're heading into season two.

  • So I guess I'm going to find out pretty soon.

  • That's quite good.

  • The dark walk.

  • So the dark walk was Foxhall.

  • Pleasure Gardens was south of the River Thames in London, and the dark walk was where ladies of the night would go and sort of ply their trade.

  • A lot of young men spent their time there, but if you were a lady caught there, lady in high society, you were in some serious trouble.

  • Which is why Daphne Bridget in an Episode one she gets really scared that she's near the dark walkers.

  • She would be ruined miniatures.

  • Pretty sure they were created for Bridget.

  • Is there like a mini deck of playing cards with paintings of all the eligible suitors?

  • So it's like you kind of knew who was single.

  • It was like social media before social media, and they'll be like the Duke of Wellington, and he has a lot of land and you want to spot him with the ball later, and then he wouldn't look like his miniature.

  • And you'd be like, Oh, my God, I got cat fished and it was the whole thing, the drawing room.

  • So the drawing room in modern pilots, I would call it a sitting room like your living room.

  • Those Regency ladies.

  • They weren't kind of allowed to do anything.

  • So it's where you like, sat and read just where you chilled with your home girls, basically leading strings.

  • So, to my best understanding, leading strings were like, you know, when you see like a little toddler on a walk with their mom and they've got like those little straps around their shoulders so they don't like runaway.

  • That's leading strings.

  • So it's a lot.

  • It's implied along bridges and the like.

  • Kim is barely out of leading strings, and I was always like, I don't even know what that means, But I do now.

  • Life is a learning process.

  • May case May Case means hurry the f up.

  • What are you doing?

  • You're wasting my time.

  • I have somewhere to be.

  • I'm a busy lady.

  • Hurry yourself up Stupid and minced.

  • You're just like Oh, I'm so cute.

  • I'm just like in front of the queen.

  • What?

  • I don't even know my life What's going on?

  • And I'm just like a cute girl And I know nothing kind of like that.

  • Like what Daphne is in front of the Queen and the nails that she's like.

  • The Diamond Promenade promenade means to walk in Bridget, and it's like you're walking for the display of the sushi is you're trying to trying to catch a husband when you're going for your promenade, and I mean, they just dressed up in those times.

  • It's not like us now when you look for your promenade and sweat pants, it was like the full look to promenade with your ladies just going for a walk.

  • Second born.

  • And I mean, it's the Prince Harry thing, right?

  • It's like the first one is all the responsibility has to manage.

  • The estate has to do what he wants.

  • And the second one can go and marry like an American Hadi and go live in L.

  • A basically so like Benedict Bridget and also can go and be, you know, an artist and live this avant garde life.

  • The first one has the responsibility.

  • The second one has the funds to sire an heir.

  • You have to make a baby that will take over your estate.

  • Feel like that was a very PC with describing that someone has to be the next week of Hastings.

  • After Simon got to make an air, I gotta make it happen.

  • Swoon Soon.

  • That was your best flirting technique.

  • In 18 13, London is just to like, fall on the ground.

  • And you know what?

  • Yeah, why not?

  • All the other girls just walking around and they're like petticoats.

  • And you're like, No, I'm just gonna fall to the floor.

  • It's a Regency.

  • Death drop is a swoon debut ng to debut that when you were, like, 16.

  • 17, you were like, you are not old enough to get married and bring some money in.

  • So we're just gonna throw you out there in front of the queen and all those dudes are gonna look you and then, like, one of them can marry you.

  • It was a bit weird.

  • I mean, if I had to actually represented to Queen Charlotte Ira, I would simply swoon.

  • Darling, Snuff.

  • Snuff is like tobacco that you can inhale.

  • I used to live in Oxford, remember?

  • There was a snuff shop, and it's really stinky.

  • And I am not into a book.

  • Queen Charlotte was super into it.

  • People thought she was doing something illegal.

  • She wasn't.

  • It was simply some stuff.

  • The modest.

  • So the modest is like the dress designers.

  • All your clothes would be made from scratch.

  • And if you were one of the Montagne, you will be going to get all your designs.

  • Maybe you'd want to look like the Flyers girl at the ball, so you need a really good modest and then she's going to have lots of sewers underneath her that are going to make the garments that she designed.

  • So she was like the Louis Vuitton of the regency.

  • A rake rake is like a bad boy.

  • He's going to ruin your life.

  • He's going to be, like, really into you and then not text you back or not, like, send you a wood pigeon.

  • Or, like what?

  • You know, whatever the equivalent was.

  • He's an F boy.

  • Regency F boy Simon, the Duke of Hastings Classic.

  • Break a duke to do because he's nobility.

  • I think he's like one under a prince.

  • If you bagged yourself a duke, you have done well.

  • Some serious houses you're getting.

  • You are kind of one of the cool ladies in society.

  • You can get invited to all the good parties, a diamond of the first water.

  • I thought this was made up for Bridget, and it wasn't it was an actual thing.

  • A diamond of the first water is just the most gorgeous girl in that season.

  • So in our season is definitely Bridget and whose elegant and flawless and perfect as you know there's a lot of pressure when it comes to being the diamond of the first one.

  • I just want to be like the garnet or the Opel of the first water.

  • That's kind of my level that I could cope with the social season.

  • So the social season was where the high society families would come from their country homes in the spring and early summer to London to get their eligible daughters married off into other wealthy families.

  • They all sort of Inter married one another.

  • Whether that was a good idea or not, that is what they did.

  • Skied.

  • Skying is about art.

  • You would go into a gallery and the really good pieces are at eye level, and then something that's not so great.

  • You're just going to put it up as high as you can.

  • It's just like color up there, but we don't need to.

  • I don't want to worry about it.

  • Set his cap to set your cap.

  • Someone means like that's the dude I like.

  • Penelope has set her cap at Colin Bridges, and even though Collins like what he hasn't, he hasn't noticed yet.

  • Sadly, she's not very good your country seat, so if you are one of these super wealthy families, you have two homes because like I guess one is not enough for something.

  • You've got your London house and you've got your country seats.

  • So it's where you would go for your shooting and your fencing.

  • And sometimes you have country parties.

  • It's your second house, basically.

  • Okay, A woman's honor gets her virginity.

  • They were super serious about virginity, and you couldn't even kiss a guy.

  • You can hold his hand, you're in trouble.

  • It's super unfair, because the women would get all the hard time about it.

  • And the dude could go around doing what they want to go along the dark walk having the time of their lives.

  • But if a woman's honor was besmirched, she was in trouble.

  • A barb, firstly, Nicki Minaj fan.

  • But secondly, it's like a read to be like her petticoats are a little bit grew up.

  • That was a terrible barb trust anything about on the spot, and that's what came out.

  • And we just have to accept that drool.

  • Droll is, like dryly funny.

  • So someone like Lady Danbury who's like super super dry but very, very hilarious they are drool dunderhead in Ireland, we were like You liege it.

  • You're dumb, but you're cute and I still like you.

  • It's not like a horrible thing to call someone.

  • It's not the nicest, but you get over it.

  • Well, that was it.

  • Thank you so much for watching.

  • I hope you've learned something today and that you were fully prepared to enter the social season for the second season of bridge.
