The Palace Punishment Room


A great many expectations come along with being a lady of a certain class. Duchess Dorking may not have been born to her station, but she’s certainly adapted to it well: the parties, the money, the social manoeuvring…

…but maybe not so much the etiquette. After one particularly debauched night of unladylike indiscretion on a royal tour, the Duke has decided that his own punishments won’t do this time: she’s to be sent to the Palace Punishment Room, where she must disrobe and await her fate as she overhears the yelps and wails of Duchess Oxford before her.

Listen in as she slips out of her tea dress, prepares for her punishment and describes the horribly public humiliations of the heavy birching to come.
