Duchess of Rutland’s 61st year kicks off to a new starts as she celebrate birthday by ‘crowd-surfing’

The Duchess of Rutland, Emma Manners, received a rock star’s treatment in celebration of her 60th birthday.

Emma’s lively birthday party at Belvoir Castle in Leicestershire featured a unique moment where she playfully ‘crowd-surfed’ over the enthusiastic guests. Despite residing separately from her estranged husband, the Duke of Rutland, within the castle’s premises, Emma stretched herself flat as she glided over the heads of the partygoers, evoking the image of a rock star leaping into an adoring concert crowd. She jovially shared this moment on her Instagram, humorously remarking that she had “made it to 60” with her “wings outstretched,” and looking forward to her seventies. Her spirited daughter, Lady Alice Manners, could be seen assisting her in the photograph, enhancing the festive atmosphere at the Swinging Sixties and Seventies-themed celebration.

A subsequent post on Emma’s social media featured a picture with her son, Charles Manners, the Marquess of Granby, potentially captured during the same festive occasion. In the photo, the 24-year-old Charles can be seen smiling as he embraces his mother while wearing a retro-inspired velvet suit and tinted shades. Emma, on the other hand, donned a glamorous blue bodycon dress adorned with silver sequins, matching her vibrant eye makeup and intricate jewelry.

Notably, Belvoir Castle in Leicestershire, known for its appearance in popular period dramas like “The Crown,” was also recently the setting for Lady Violet Manners’s 30th birthday celebration. Lady Violet, the Duke of Rutland’s eldest daughter, hosted a “13 going on 30”-themed bash on the extensive estate grounds. The event featured snapshots of Lady Violet with notable guests, including the marchioness of Blandford, Camilla Spencer-Churchill, and society model Sabrina Percy. Emma, Lady Violet’s mother, opted for an elegant one-shouldered green dress at the celebration.

During a previous appearance on the ITV morning show “Lorraine,” Emma shared her belief that the 356-room Belvoir Castle might be haunted. She mentioned hearing bagpipe sounds late at night emanating from the castle’s lift shaft, adding a sense of mystery to their residence. Emma also recounted a playful prank her daughters played on actor Hugh Grant, who was staying at the castle. Despite her experiences, she admitted that there are things one can’t explain when it comes to ghosts.

Emma and her estranged husband, David Manners, the 11th Duke of Rutland, have brought up their five children, including Violet, Alice, Eliza, Charles, and Hugo, with a focus on keeping them grounded. Emma emphasized their active involvement in various tasks, including running an ice cream shop, working in the gift shop, and serving tables, as a means of instilling strong work ethics and humility in them.
