If Edith marries Bertie it will not be plain sailing as he clearly has a very dominant mother and seems very influenced by her. Thought he seemed a bit of a wimp tbh!
Yeah Mary definitely needed be tolded off by Edith. As for Bertie, I recall him explaining to Edith that he felt he lacked the courage to be one of his county's leaders, and he wanted her by his side to help him. Certainly it sounded like he would get no such help from his mom. So going off what has been said already in this forum, as if he feels less lonely and stronger in Edith's presence, yeah I defintely think he would want to be with her again.
I love her with Miranda so I hope she plays the same overbearing, obnoxious and desperate-to-marry-off-her-offspring toff that she is there! It pretty much fits in with what we've heard of Mrs. Pelham so far...
What rank is Adele? (The character, not the singer). Because Mrs Pelham may prefer Edith. She's the daughter of an Earl and is independantly wealthy. And her wealth comes from a buisness that is likeley to last in a time when stately homes were falling to bits.
I don't recall hearing of a character named Adele on the show. Is this the girl Edith mentioned was going to marry the previous Lord Hexham before his death? I had wondered if maybe the late Lord Hexham's fiance might try to marry Bertie now that he's inherited the title. As for Mrs Pelham, I thought Bertie suggested she doesn't care much for nobility and titles, though perhaps Edith being an indpendent businesswoman might attract her. On the other hand, if Mrs Pelham finds out about Marigold, that might put her off.
Adela Graham, listed in minor off-screen characters was a cousin to Peter Pelham; his and her parents apparently expected Peter to marry her. I don't know if she and her parents will try to get her to marry Bertie now. She certainly hasn't been listed (yet) as appearing in the holiday episode, so perhaps not.
I was thinking back to the first visit to Brancaster. Robert stated the he had been there before; they were trying to marry off a niece. That could not be Bertie's mother; she was not the Pelham. It is a thought to contemplate whether the niece would be a guest at a dinner or something.
It did work for Fitzwilliam Darcy and Eliza Bennet in Pride and Prejudice, but here there is no pride or prejudice, just love and loyalty to each other.

Maybe it was a maternal relative with a title who could not inherit the title.
It could be like a reversal of the Mary-Matthew story line, except this time Lavinia (Edith) is picked in favour of Mary (Adela). That would be interesting.
What do you think?
